They had to change our itinerary last minute, which meant the students had more free time than originally planned. (January 2020 - Secondary)




The trip was a great success and achieved all of the objectives that were set. The day was informative and gave students the opportunity to form new friendships and be trusted to explore the park themselves. The idea of Consequence was explored and all students thoroughly enjoyed the day. (November 2019 - Secondary)




Exceptionally busy so students didn't get the opportunity to go on many rides (November 2019 - Secondary)

Thorpe Park, very helpful staff and easy to organise rewards day activity. (September 2019 - Secondary)




(September 2019 - Secondary)




Despite pre-ordering and paying for our tickets, queues to collect these tickets took almost 90 minutes. As a youth group we had been originally advised to collect from the schools entrance but on arrival were turned away to the main queues for tickets. Once inside we had to collect fast passes, which also took almost an hour to collect and assign to young people. As such, young people only had approximately 3 hours to access rides, with some waiting times as long as an hour. (September 2019 - Secondary)

Welcome/arrival could be managed better. Arrival form should be given to lead teacher in advance to allow completion prior to arrival at venue - no time to complete in detail so therefore not useful. Adult and student tickets should be separated. Ticket collection "tent" should be much closer to coach park - much time wasted walking all the way to the entrance and back again to distribute tickets to staff and students. (August 2019 - Secondary)




Great time had by all students (July 2019 - Secondary)

Wheelchair - need to book beforehand as there were none available on the day. Queue exemption cards - individuals need medical evidence (i.e. doctors note, x-ray, report etc) in order to get a queue pass. Timings - it takes at least 45 minutes to get from the coach through the turnstiles, this needs to be considered when booking workshops. (July 2019 - Secondary)

(June 2019 - Secondary)




Well organised, payment needed to be made very early though which for a non compulsory trip makes it a little awkwards. (June 2019 - Secondary)
