Back to School Promotion

Book a full-day school visit for the autumn term and receive a 10 percent discount. 

As we enter the new school term, I am running a promotion offering a ten percent discount on my usual school visit fee.

Told by a careers advisor that girls like me don’t become writers, my school visits focus on encouraging others to smash stereotypes and defy the limits put on them by adopting a BMX mindset. To get a feel for the energy of my events, check out this photostream of my #BeMoreBMX assembly at St Oswald’s. I can’t promise a BMXer – St Oswald’s were lucky enough to have their very own – but I do promise flying teabags, bouncing eyeballs and lots of empowering fun!


“It was brilliant and I would highly recommend it to all schools. Marie is fabulous!”
Tami Wylie, Teacher, Holy Cross Primary School, Oldham

 “Marie, Thank you so much for today’s virtual assembly. We LOVED it! The inspirational advice, breathtaking videos, fun quiz…the list goes on. We are all going to try and #BeMoreBMX”
Faye Cooper, Teacher, Adlingnton Primary School!

“Completely bonkers but a consummate professional, not a bad mix in my book.”
Kaye Tew Director of the Manchester Children’s Book
