The teachers lounge was closed when we arrived. there are no coffee /tea making facilities, or comfy chairs, in it and I was wary of leaving my bags in there when I needed to go to the loo or collect a hot drink as the door was left open all the time. I was the designated staff member who was to be on duty in case of emergencies. (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16517 )

The Alton Towers trip is always popular and enjoyed by all. The rides are excellent and staff appear friendly and helpful. There is a hygiene suite for wheelchair users who require full support but only one so you do need to plan the day carefully to account for that.
