"Steve Walls is THE finest host in the North East. We have been privileged to acquire his skills and services over the past 7 years. In a time where the focus of schools is all about raising standards, expectations and achievement, Steve continues to compliment these elements when hosting our Presentation Evenings. Year on year, he raises the bar with his professionalism, timing and of course Geordie humour. Our parents, students and staff absolutely love him.
