Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?
“All very positive. They felt cared for and safe – the centre staff were outstanding!” Residential visit from year 3 of St. Mary’s Primary School of Bentworth. Head Teacher Kate Heffer

“The learning experience began the moment we arrived at the hostel and all of the planned offsite visits were of high quality and generally tailored to fit the schools curriculum. Overall this was an excellent residential where unique opportunities were provided. There was only positive feedback from the parents” Residential visit from year 6 of St. Patricks Catholic Primary School of Farnborough. Acting Headteacher Joanne Barton

“Each day proved to be very different. The structure of the week certainly catered for the wide range of interests that Primary age children have. I can’t praise Janet and her team highly enough for their care and attention to detail.” Residential visit from year 6 of Rowledge Primary School of Farnham. Headteacher Richard Catchpole

Is there anything else that you feel is important and want to include in your information?
“By acting in a more sustainable way we can develop a world that future generations will thank us for.”
