If needed the Centre can provide mini bus shuttles to and from school at a small charge.
A day trip will be from 10:00-15:00 and include a half hour lunch break. Half-day visits are also possible. The cost is bespoke for each booking depending on the group size, number of activities and tutors needed – from £12 per pupil/day. Eg For a class of 30 the cost will be £250 for 1 tutor for the day or if the class were to split for smaller group activities and need 2 tutors this will be £350.
