Alton towers overall went well. There was a few teething issues such as: Long wait on the bus whilst tickets being printed Students arriving late back to the meeting point Once students had departed the bus, there was some confusion on entry into the park around advising of the meeting point and allowing students to go before checking they were in the correct number of groups. Low level behaviour issues resolved by members of staff. Sickness on coaches. 4 first aid incidents (October 2021 - Secondary School)




We visited Alton Towers and were really impressed with the layout of all the rides and how much the safety was paramount for all the students. We had no issues at all in terms of transport there and back. Every student we took had a brilliant day from the moment they set off until they were dropped off back home.

Alton towers overall went well. There was a few teething issues such as: Long wait on the bus whilst tickets being printed Students arriving late back to the meeting point Once students had departed the bus, there was some confusion on entry into the park around advising of the meeting point and allowing students to go before checking they were in the correct number of groups. Low level behaviour issues resolved by members of staff. Sickness on coaches. 4 first aid incidents



October 2021 - Secondary School
We visited Alton Towers and were really impressed with the layout of all the rides and how much the safety was paramount for all the students. We had no issues at all in terms of transport there and back. Every student we took had a brilliant day from the moment they set off until they were dropped off back home.
