Leonardo Rossetti Company Director, Music & Drama Teacher
Described in a 2002 OFSTED inspection report as 'very talented', Leonardo is a music teacher, instrumental tutor, subject coordinator and drama practitioner. His music assemblies have been described as 'electric' and in February 2013 an Executive Director for Lewisham stated that Leonardo's singing assembly was 'spine-tingling.'
'Once, when watching a whole-school singing assembly, an HMI remarked to me that the children were so fortunate to be taught by such an inspired and inspiring teacher. Leonardo inspired the children to heights previously unimaginable.....He not only brought challenge, creativity and rigour into the children's lives, but he developed and enhanced their motivation and self-image.'
