What teachers say
“The organisation was superb and the activities magnificent. I already had high expectations for the day but the outcomes surpassed my expectations. Heartfelt and sincere thanks to all involved for such a perfect trip. Life long memories were created today.”
“Phenomenal. The staff were amazing. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. I cannot fault them from the moment they welcomed us, to the moment they all waved goodbye. Nothing was too much trouble. It is hands down the best school trip I've ever done. We've already booked for next year. It genuinely was a beacon of excellence.”
“Absolutely brilliant. Best trip I've ever taken a class on. So interactive, real and exciting for the children.”
“It is AMAZING experience from beginning to end for everyone. Especially for our inner city kids - it is just such an exciting environment! So much to see and great opportunities to become an explorer! A ‘real adventure’ as described by one of my kids!”
“One of the best trips I've done in 30 years of teaching.”
“A great educational and fun day out! The staff are so attentive and we learned so much about pond creatures and habitats. There's so much to see and explore throughout the day. Our children came back 'buzzing' with lots to tell their parents about their wonderful experiences at Martin Mere.”
“A beautiful, safe environment that continually gave the children moments of awe. It sparked so many questions and discussions and the children were so happy to explore.”
“Just excellent. Planned really well from start to finish. The day goes quickly, but is packed with activities. There's so much to see and do. We were very well looked after and had a base where we could leave all of our things. Toilet facilities were also great. The sessions were great value for money and perfect for the age group. There's nothing I would change!”
