Good administration; no unexpected problems; dealt with changes well (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7994 )




A very interactive way to consolidate and extend their knowledge. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7921 )




Great day out (November 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7867 )

Poor. Short tour and the seating area for students had no stalls for food open. (November 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7466 )




Children love the trip every year and always well organised (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7424 )




Excellent education session about the Mayans to support our topic work in school. Of course the children enjoyed the Cadbury World experience too. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6878 )

Great trip but they closed the park due to it being too wet. (September 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6180 )

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 - Post No: 5843 )




Very well organised trip. However, no availability for the children to refill water bottles. (August 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5821 )

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.

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.

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.

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 - Post No: 3710 )

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.

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 - Post No: 3225 )

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.

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.

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 - Post No: 1555 )




excellent trip love this place fits into the Aztecs nicely (February 2018 - Primary & Secondary - Post No: 1420 )




The speaker was fantastic, and other than Cadabra being closed the entire day went to plan. (February 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 1239 )
