Our school enjoyed a great fun-packed week of activities. After visiting two years ago - the only areas arising would be: accommodation - not as clean as previous. Also- being able to have a say in the activities we could do would be great as some children ended up repeating activities from previous year. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16717 )

Children enjoyed their trip, were safe and well fed. Accommodation was dated. Some group games were either boring or not well organised (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14009 )




The staff and facilities at Kingswood Overstrand Hall were extremely good.They were patient and caring towards our SEND students. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13485 )




It was good to see improvements made at Kingswood from the previous year in the length of the sessions - which meant that the children had more than one opportunity to try the activity - and in the menu. We had concerns with one instructor during our stay but this was dealt with quickly by senior staff at Kingswood when we raised our concerns. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11885 )

Staff very supportive, very aware of safety with good safety equipment. Good facilities. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 8163 )

Some activities were very basic (e.g. build a marble run using two sheets of flip chart paper) and there was very little discussion about how well they were working as a team or how they could improve. The high ropes and abseiling activities were good but only 1 or 2 children could go at once meaning the children only had around 5 minutes of activity in the hour. Some activities (fencing and laser tag) did not have enough equipment for all the children to have a go at once. 29 children did the nightline with 1 instructor in the dark - this was only safe because 3 of my staff supported and ran one of the groups. The tuck shop sold children sweets telling them they did not have gelatin in, when in fact they did. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7616 )
