An excellent, well-run residential which the children, and staff, really enjoyed. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17444 )




Ford Castle was an excellent experience for our pupils. All staff created a positive experience for our pupils. The castle was clean and the food good. A range of instructors helped our pupils to achieve the best that they could in a range of interesting and appropriate activities. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16941 )




A very good trip where staff organised all events, kept great time, engaged with humour and compassion and ensured that the children were safe at all times. 12 activities ensured that children were always busy and they even ran night time activities (a scavenger hunt and a disco). Facilities for activities were great and hygiene was adequate with so many washrooms. There was however a mushroom growing in one of the rooms so children were moved (staff were informed). I would definitely recommend going there again next year although it does not really link with the history/Geography topic of Vikings. (September 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16218 )
