Theme Park Day. Would be suitable for a reward day but Drayton Manor had poorly organised the day. Poor entry into the park with no ticketing system. Closed parts of the park to students and water rides required a staff member which was not suitable with 230 students and 17 staff. (July 2022 - Secondary School)

Not enough areas space for children to eat lunch. (July 2022 - Primary School)




Valuable visit in lots of ways, especially PSHE, supporting and communicating with peers. (July 2022 - Primary School)

Enjoyable day. All safe and well behaved. Park was very busy wig long queues but became quieter later in afternoon. It makes sense to stay for full day and to participate on water rides in last hour. No problem to add pupils on the day. (July 2019 - Primary School)

Our students had a great time at Drayton Manor theme park. The only negative I received was because of the length of time we were there for, meaning students could only get on 3-6 rides before having to leave. We are in discussion with the Rotary club to see whether this can be an extended day next year. (July 2019 - Secondary School)

Shame it rained solidly all day so we were drenched however there were enough rides on for everyone to enjoy! The children loved it and have learned and quoted lots of facts from the workshop - very engaging. Plenty of places as well to shelter from rain so it didn't spoil it. Very well-organised and fun.
