A home away
from home

Frequently asked
Questions for Secondary Schools

Can I preview the centre prior to my visit?

We are always happy to accommodate a preview of our centres. Please contact the centre you’re visiting to arrange a suitable date and time with the customer service department. Call our team on 0800 655 6564.

We are holders of the LOtC quality badge. This means you can be assured that we have met with required standards around safety, activity provision and learning outcomes. The Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel endorses the LOtC Quality Badge and the majority of Local Authority Outdoor Education Advisers have indicated that they accept the award in place of some or all of their checks. You can view which Local Authority Outdoor Education Advisers support the LOtC Quality Badge by visiting the OEAP website here.

Are you able to cater for specific dietary needs for those with allergies/intolerances?

We can cater for most dietary requirements. Please contact the centre as soon as possible to make them aware of any allergies which they can discuss with you to ensure the correct provisions are in place for your visit

Can we change our programme?

If you've chosen our Adventure programme, then it's a pre-built programme including a broad range of activities supporting our core learning outcomes of confidence, resilience and life skills. Adventure programmes can't be customised.

If you've booked Adventure Plus, your programme will be designed around the learning outcomes and objectives you gave us at the time of booking. If you want to make changes, our programmer would be happy to discuss your needs. We welcome activity requests and although first choices may not always be available we will offer suitable alternatives.

Can we arrive outside set arrival times?

If you want to get even more out of your stay you can opt for one of our early arrival options and add an extra activity.

  • Standard Arrival
    Arrive at 14:30 to meet your group leader. Room allocations from 15:00 followed by ice breakers. First activity scheduled at 16:05.
  • Early arrival with 1 extra activity (lunch not included)
    Arrive at 12:30 (bring own packed lunch) and meet group leader. Room allocations from 14:00 followed by ice breakers. First activity scheduled at 14:30.
  • Early with 1 extra activity (lunch included)
    Arrive at 12:30, hot lunch included and meet group leader. Room allocations from 14:00 followed by ice breakers. First activity schedules at 14:30.
  • Self-Led Early Arrival
    Arrive after 12:30, self-led time until standard arrival time 14:30 to meet group leader. Room allocations from 15:00 followed by ice breakers. First activity scheduled at 16:05.

Do we get lunch on departure day?

Yes. All guests get a packed lunch on departure and a hot option can be provided at an extra cost.

Can I add more guests to my booking?

Changes can be made to the number of guests up until room allocations and activity groups are set eight weeks prior to the trip. Changes after this point will depend on accommodation and activity availability on centre and it may not be possible to accommodate additional guests.

When will we receive our programme and room allocations?

We aim to send out your room plan and activity programme four weeks prior to your trip. To ensure we meet this deadline, we ask you to provide gender splits eight weeks prior to the trip. Details of the information required will be in your twelve week email and can be provided to us via your centre contact.

Do adults have single rooms?

Our teacher rooms are a mix of single and twin rooms, located close to the student dormitories. If you have specific requirements for single rooms, we will try to accommodate where possible.

Can we request a specific accommodation building?

We are happy to take requests for specific accommodation blocks but we cannot offer any guarantees (unless specifically confirmed at time of booking), especially in peak periods. Your group may be sharing an accommodation block with other groups but we will endeavour to keep groups on separate floors and corridors.
