Schools and Group Visits


We welcome school trips.

We have a Teachers’ Pack that gives a flavour of what we can provide.

We have a special discounted rate of just £7.50 (including VAT) per child.

Please click here to download the Teachers’ Welcome Pack (650KB pdf). If a teacher wishes to come on a pre-trip visit, if you print out the pack and bring it with you – you’ll get free access to the centre. Full risk assessments can be found in the Teachers’ Welcome Pack.
