It was really easy to work with the staff at Thorpe Park. They responded promptly to emails / queries before the trip and nearly everything went smoothly on the day. The only blip was two pupils getting injured (grazed / bruised arms) on a ride (haunted house style) where all the lights went out and an employee shouted to 'run'. Anne Thompson has been in touch with the park about this and a manager is now liaising with PJP about some kind of compensation. (June 2018 - Secondary School)
