No Pens Day Wednesday Case Studies

Over the years we have been lucky enough to hear about the innovative ways that some of you have used The Trust's materials. Below are just a few of the success stories we've heard from schools and settings across the country. We know that schools and settings are always keen to hear from others about the way the day worked for them and we hope the case studies below are valuable in supporting this.  

If you have taken part in No Pens Day Wednesday and would like a case study featuring your school on this page, contact Jack on jwilliams@thecommunicationtrust.org.uk - we would love to hear from you!
