Reserving dates with a provisional booking
Course dates can be saved provisionally for your party, with no obligation, for up to three weeks whilst you contact parents and make any other necessary arrangements. At the end of this three week period we need to receive, a signed booking form from you, together with an initial deposit payment of £200 per activity group (around £20 per child) in order to confirm your booking. As soon as we have your booking form and initial deposit payment, your booking is secure. There are then two further payment dates:
- A second deposit of £300 per activity group (around £30 per child) is due 8 weeks after the first deposit payment.
- The completion payment for the whole course is due 6 weeks before the course
Flexibility in final numbers
Our system of booking for a fixed number of activity groups rather than a fixed number of children has proved popular with many schools. As long as you remain within the minimum and maximum limits stated, the actual numbers of children can vary right up until the date of the course and we will only charge for the number of children that actually attend.
Adult places free of charge
We recommend that there is always at least one accompanying adult attending for each activity group booked, but having more adults can sometimes be helpful, particularly if there are children with additional needs in your party. We are happy to accommodate some additional adults attending free charge, up to a maximum of 2 adults per activity group booked. We provide one bedroom for each activity group booked, so if more than 1 adult per group is attending, some adults will generally need to share rooms.
Additional bedrooms for adults available to book
At each centre we have a limited number of additional bedrooms for adults that can be booked by schools at a charge of £60 per room per course. These rooms (which can also accommodate up to 2 adults) are offered on a first come, first served, basis for schools who are bringing additional adults and would like to have more than one room per activity group booked available to them. The charge made is per room per course, there is no variation dependent on usage or numbers of adult attending.
Commitment to minimum numbers
When you confirm a booking, you are making a firm commitment to pay for the minimum number of children, for the number of activity groups booked, which is 10 times the number of activity groups. A booking is confirmed when a deposit payment has been made and a signed booking form has been returned.
