TGC will provide a full Risk Benefit Assessment to read before the visit. All school staff are invited to visit the site prior to bringing a class.

At least three school staff are required per group, included one designated school first aider.

The TGC team is trained to deliver first aid, however for pastoral reasons school staff are to be the first to treat first aid with TGC offering support.

 just think this was an absolutely amazing experience for my class, they didn’t want to leave.
They really came into their own in the outdoors.

I  think if I was living in a bombed London I would love to come here. I really get it. Why they liked it so much.
I’d like to come in my summers now.
