Frequently Asked Questions About Our Activity Days

For the many schools that look for activity days each year, there will be a few questions that you may wish to ask before making a booking. We have chosen the most common queries and answered them in brief below. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any other questions you may have.

Where do you run your activity days and do you bring the equipment?

Where are you based?

Our headquarters is in Derbyshire. Our full time staff are located throughout the UK allowing us to offer a nationwide service to schools.

Do you run the activities at our school?

We offer a mobile service that allows us to deliver activities at all schools throughout the UK.

Do you bring the equipment?

We bring all of our specialised equipment needed for both our Maths Workshops and Team Building Days. This equipment is setup in classrooms, halls, gyms and outside spaces. Our aim is to use equipment that schools do not already have access to already.

Do you offer activities all year round?

We offer activities all year round, unlike other companies who just operate for a few month of the year. This allows us to employ full time members of experienced staff.

Staff

Are your staff DBS checked?

All of our staff have an up to date Enhanced DBS check. They will bring a copy of this on the day. They will also bring photographic ID with them.

Who do you work with?

What age groups do you work with?

We work with children from EYFS age to Sixth Formers( KS5) and University students. We even run Teacher Team Building Days on request. Each day is designed to fit the needs and requirements of each particular group.

Do you work with SEN groups?

Yes we successfully visit many SEN Schools each year. Activities are adapted and differentiated as necessary.

What group size do you work with?

We can cater from small groups of 5-10 students to 1000+ students. The largest group we have simultaneously catered for was a Secondary School of 1200 students.

Space and activity length

What space do you need?

We use classrooms, halls, sports halls,  gyms and other large spaces. We can also utilise all areas outside at the school such as playgrounds,  fields and astro turfs.

How long do you sessions last?

We run sessions from 30 mins to full days of activities. Timings can be bespoke to each school and can if required fit in with the normal school timetable.

Cost

How much do your days cost?

This will depend on the number of instructors you have and the type of event. We charge per instructor so you know exactly how many of our staff you are getting to work with your students.

Booking

How much in advance do I need to book?

We get busier each year so to secure your preferred date/s  booking early is recommended.

How do we book?

To book you will be emailed a short booking form that when complete will give us all of the information we need to organise your day. Once received we will send you everything you will need to know about your day along with a proposed schedule.

When do we pay?

We will invoice the school after the event,  no deposits are required.
