The shows combine a rock concert, with a comedy show, quiz and an all singing and dancing (literally) English lesson. The focus is to engage in English.
A one-man show offering school visits and virtual school visits to raise attainment in English skills.
I'm Barrie. I'm a former English teacher, Consultant and Examiner. Some pupils call me the 'Punctuation Man' and I've been visiting schools for fourteen years.
I can help your pupils to remember, understand and apply key English skills such as punctuation and grammar. I do this through school visits (remotely and in person) and entertaining them. What better way to learn than learning through laughter?
In these difficult times, using remote teaching for the punctuation show brought fun, engagement and a new face into the classroom! Great, supportive and follow up resources too. - Thank you Barrie. L Hylton
Thanks for delivering your show this morning! I've had 6 members of staff hunt me down today to thank me and say that they enjoyed it! My class were clapping and doing the "Bracket Dance" later in the day as well so it's clearly had a positive impact!
Thank you SO much!
That was awesome - the children absolutely loved it! It was a great way to start our Thursday morning. Everything ran VERY smoothly. Anna Marren
The information was clear on the ppt and was explained well and straight to the point. How Barrie presented it was great. His expressions and actions/dances were very engaging and funny. He made the learning fun!

If you're not happy, I won't charge.
SPAG tests, GCSEs, Reading tests… they're all a huge cause of stress for Heads and Teachers who are trying to engage pupils in their learning.
Do you think it would be great if there was a way to engage pupils AND improve their SPAG test scores? You should get in touch.
When we go to the theatre, or a concert, we remember what we've seen. We talk about it with our friend. It's an experience that we learn from. The concept of The Punctuation Show adapts this to the school curriculum.
The shows combine a comedy show, a rock concert and a (literally) all-singing, all-dancing literacy lesson to create an impact on results.
Whatever your punctuation, grammar, reading or English GCSE needs are, you'll find a school visit or virtual school visit that will help.
