(April 2020 - Primary)




We needed longer! I hadn't arranged a workshop. However, we arrived at 10:30. left at 2pm and could easily have spent a further hour. We didn't complete any worksheets so went around the exhibition quicker than we could have done. A few questions for each area would have been useful and Cadbury World provide plenty of educational sheets. (April 2020 - Primary)




Great trip for our year 3 children,good educational talks linked to the curriculum and a fun, all inclusive environment, the children really enjoyed the experience. (March 2020 - Primary)

(February 2020 - Primary)




Students thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Cadbury World and were impressed with the very informative lecture from one of the employees who discussed the marketing strategy of Cadbury's with them. Other areas of the gcse business course were also discussed through different means throughout the tour. We watched a film on the history of Cadbury's and their approach to employee welfare which was well ahead of its time. We also had chance to be involved with some of their marketing techniques when we sat through a 4D cinema experience. Overall we had a fantastic trip and students came away with some useful examples of a business in action, which they can use for comparisons to the course content. (February 2020 - Secondary)

Great trip, children learnt a lot. (June 2019 - Primary)




A wonderful trip. The children enjoyed this very much and the Staff at Cadbury World were great. Timings worked well (leaving at 9.15am and arriving at 10.45am and then leaving Cadbury World at 4.30pm). You would not have wanted any less time there otherwise we wouldn't have fitted everything in! (June 2019 - Primary)




(June 2019 - Primary)




Perfect timings. Great venue although outside under cover eating areas unavailable when needed due to inclement weather and sheer numbers of school children. (June 2019 - Secondary)

Children were engaged and we got out of the trip what we wanted. Tip: do not do the educational talk at the end of the day when the children are full of chocolate! (March 2019 - Primary)




(March 2019 - Secondary)




(March 2019 - Primary)




Super communications regarding booking and the run up to the trip date. The actual day was jam packed and the talk was a highlight for the children. The gentleman that did the talk was very friendly, but firm and extremely informative. Will recommend to others without a doubt! (March 2019 - Primary)




The children really enjoyed themselves! (March 2019 - Primary)




Very interactive and accessible for our children and their age range. The children loved the ride and playing the different games. It was however very busy and we struggled to find a space to eat our lunch. (March 2019 - Primary)




Our students are special needs. In the first part where you go through the jungle, was low lit. One of our students did not like this. They also struggled in the 4D film. (March 2019 - Secondary)




Fantastic day with lots of exciting things for the children to see and do. The children loved the 4D cinema experience and really enjoyed tempering and writing with chocolate. (March 2019 - Primary)




The wheelchair access at the Cadbury World attraction was excellent, low level viewing areas, wide paths and walking areas, wheelchair access to the ride, sign language accompanying the presentations and holographic displays and both disabled toilet facilities and a full hygiene suite with tracking hoist and height adjustable changing bed.

Cadbury's World were great! They were so helpful and accommodating! The children loved it and it was an amazing day! (January 2019 - Secondary)




Overall a very good day out. The talk in particular was enjoyable. It was a shame there was no where appropriate inside for 90 children to eat their lunch as it was very cold outside! (December 2018 - Primary)




The Cadbury World attraction is good. It shows the history of chocolate, the manufacturing process, advertising campaigns and there is lots of fun. There are many links to Business Studies including employee welfare and manufacturing. The educational talk on marketing was excellent and the students commented on how they enjoyed this.

Great trip but they closed the park due to it being too wet. (September 2018 - Primary)




(September 2018 - Primary)




We notified Cadbury World as we were delayed due to traffic. Upon arrival we were told to have 70 boys queue with the general public- very stressful for us and members of the public. Staff insisted that children with nut allergies should still be given chocolate bars but should trade them in for sweets. I considered this a huge risk and collected them in from the children concerned. There are allergy safe options throughout the tour but they are not signposted at all. We felt like it was a conveyor belt experience and we struggled to read about exhibits etc as we were steadily moved along. We would have liked a named staff member especially as we had disabled students with access requirements. It was rushed and staff kept allowing members of the public to cut the queue and thus separate our group. This made ensuring adequate supervision was really stressful. Probably a better venue for a much smaller group. (August 2018 - Secondary)




Very well organised trip. However, no availability for the children to refill water bottles. (August 2018 - Primary)

An excellent one hour talk on theme 1 leading onto theme 2 to prepare students for content in year 11. Learners were able to walk round and see the development of an idea (entrepreneur) and how the marketing and scale of the business has changed over the years. They were also able to understand why the business was located where it was to provide raw materials and labour. Cocoa Life was also introduced in relation to business ethics. (June 2018 - Secondary)




On arrival, at 10.00am, we were told that we needed to pay for the trip in full before our children were allowed in. I explained that at no point had I been told this, even during the call I made the day before the trip to make sure that everything was okay. We paid for the trip and then had to wait in a queue until 11.00am - it was a hot day and our children were becoming restless. When in the outdoor play area, there was a man taking photographs of our children and those from other schools. When asked to stop on numerous occasions by myself and other school staff he kept saying that he 'liked the structure' of the playground. On speaking with Security they confirmed that they had already spoken to him and that due to him being foreign he doesn't understand our Safeguarding laws and was most probably just taking photos of the structures. The man's presence was an uneasy one. What concerned us more was that he had direct access to the play area from the carpark meaning that he hadn't even had to enter Cadbury World in order for him to have access to hundreds of children with a camera. (June 2018 - Primary)




Lots for the children to do throughout the day with engaging exhibits and good outdoor space too. The talk we had about the process of making chocolate was interesting and the children remained focused throughout. It was good that there were items that the children could hold and smell too as part of this discussion to see various stages of chocolate. The staff were friendly and helpful. (June 2018 - Primary)




(June 2018 - Primary)




The children and staff had a really great time. (June 2018 - Primary)

Cadbury World was incredibly busy and children didn't get enough time to complete 4D adventure. The children queued for nearly 1 hour and then didn't get to go on due to time constraints. (May 2018 - Primary)

Children really enjoyed the visit and had the opportunity to learn many aspects connected to our topic. They were able to taste chocolate and enjoy interactive activities, which were popular. It was quite busy though with other schools, especially the play area. Also a lot of walking around at times. Facilities for our wheelchair user were excellent. (May 2018 - Primary)




(May 2018 - Primary)




A fantastic day, the children learned lots and I can use information/ experiences from the day in my subsequent teaching for the rest of the term. (May 2018 - Primary)

Some of the factory is now closed so tour is more reduced than previous years (May 2018 - Secondary)




(April 2018 - Primary)




The trip was well organised and purposeful. All pupils enjoyed the day and learned from their experience. The only area for improvement would be the level of organisation during the school workshop session in their educational department. Some pupils were actively involved in the session but not many. (March 2018 - Primary)

(March 2018 - Primary)




Visit very informative and useful in terms of supporting our current work and intended learning outcomes. However the venue was very busy on the day we visited - maybe some kind of allotted booking slots need to be considered to ease congestion and waiting times and make moving around the venue easier for smaller children.

(March 2018 - Secondary)




Fantastic day (March 2018 - Primary)




(March 2018 - Primary)

Good venue and activities although the arrangements for eating packed lunches were not really well thought out as there was no heating in the marquee tents and temperatures were extremely low outside so students were very cold. (March 2018 - Secondary)




excellent trip love this place fits into the Aztecs nicely (February 2018 - Primary & Secondary)




The speaker was fantastic, and other than Cadabra being closed the entire day went to plan. (February 2018 - Secondary)
