An excellent week away for the children. They tried new activities and pushed themselves, developing teamwork and resilience all the while. (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14431 )




Was a good trip for the students to see coastal landforms that are not common place in the East of England as well as collect and present some physical fieldwork data. (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14333 )

Fantastic experience provided for our students who thoroughly enjoyed the trip. (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14234 )




Suitable accommodation, PGL leaders had good subject and local knowledge (sea defences and coastal landforms). Some miscommunication with PGL booked travel company (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14135 )

Great fun had by all! The year 6 group were able to work successfully as teams, build their resilience, attempt new and exciting activities and exceed their own expectations with the help of the enthusiastic and encouraging PGL staff. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13439 )




Great facilities and activities but we were let down by not having great group leaders. (June 2019 - Primary & Secondary - Post No: 13314 )

The trip was fantastic, the weather was fantastic and the overall learning experience of the pupils was fantastic. Was very surprised about the amount of Maths which was incorporated into the activities. Have rebooked again for 2019 and 2020. (March 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 10612 )




Excellent venue and perfect for the aims of our visit. High quality teaching from PGL staff and venue was great. (March 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 10020 )

The centre expanded last year and there are still some issues related to that. For example: Meal times were too short and both adults and children felt rushed and some of the staff, being new, were not so skilled in dealing with a large group such as ours. (June 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3938 )




feedback given to PGL about meeting point 2 being crowded and skill level of groupie. (June 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3878 )

An excellent residential visit, we would love to visit again. However, the distance and the price are now beyond our capabilities. (May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3645 )




(May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3378 )




Excellent organisation, extremely rigorous safety protocols in place and food and accommodation more than adequate for the needs of the pupils. For pupils with health conditions that require keeping extra dry and warm the new accommodation block would be more appropriate. (May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3111 )




The staff went out of their way to ensure they looked after us during severe weather conditions (March 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1665 )
