Children gained a lot from this experience (September 2020 - Primary)




Organisation at Kingswood Staffordshire is poor. Activity groups were too large which meant children waited for long periods of time whilst getting extremely cold. The site seems to be run by a very young and inexperienced group of people. We also have questions about safety and activity regulations at the site. Unfortunately, we will not be returning. (March 2020 - Primary)

Staff excellent - activities well run and organised - timetable well thought out - rebooked for next year. Next year need 1 more member of staff than groups - ie 6 groups = 7 staff. In emergencies, there was no adult to step in. (November 2019 - Primary)




(October 2019 - Secondary)




(October 2019 - Secondary)




Although the young people enjoyed themselves, there was too much downtime between activities. Also there was not a great choice of food for the young people, in particular healthy options. (September 2019 - Secondary)




Great staff and site. Was very busy and other schools did hinder our visit due to behaviour (August 2019 - Primary)




(July 2019 - Primary)




(July 2019 - Primary)




A good activity centre suitable for primary school children. The centre's bedrooms are large and so up to 14 children share one room. This also meant that the whole corridor shared 8 showers and one bathroom which was not ideal in the evening after activities (July 2019 - Primary)




(July 2019 - Primary)




A great trip that gave all children a wonderful experience (June 2019 - Primary)




(June 2019 - Primary)




Would prefer a contained area for our school (86 pupils) rather than sharing corridors with other schools (May 2019 - Primary)




A lovely trip which the children enjoyed and got a lot out of. (May 2019 - Primary)

A very safe and secure centre. Lots of excellent activities. Some details were missed on arrival which would have helped to make the trip go smoother. (March 2019 - Primary)




Good centre and staff, however, facilities were limiting and not ideal for our large group size (February 2019 - Secondary)




(January 2019 - Primary)




(December 2018 - Primary)




(November 2018 - Primary)




The activities were organised well and no time was wasted. The children were offered different activities such as bush survival, which they really enjoyed. However the sleeping accommodation was not 100%, the children struggled with the comfort of beds. Overall the staff were very helpful across the whole centre. (November 2018 - Primary)




(November 2018 - Primary)




A good centre that focusses on giving children a good experience. (November 2018 - Primary)




(October 2018 - Primary)




Lovely visit, lots of hand on experience, the children loved it! (October 2018 - Primary)




Fantastic for our children who need lots of different experiences away from home (October 2018 - Primary)




(June 2018 - Primary)




Staff were brilliant. Venue is rather run down and student rooms also small. In terms of activities- brilliant and food was good too (June 2018 - Secondary)




A fantastic time had by all children. Even though we had a few problems they were all sorted quickly and professionally. (June 2018 - Primary)




(June 2018 - Primary)




Great range of activities and great staff. (June 2018 - Primary)

The staff and activities were fantastic however I feel the accommodation needs a lot of money spending on it. (March 2018 - Primary)
