Holmes Chapel GB
Firstly the trip was fantastic! A couple of things worth mentioning though. The workshop based on The Play That Goes Wrong being in two separate venues was a slight faff and caused us to be even later than we should have been for the session. Also some of time timings had not taken into account events in London and so we were stuck in traffic more than usual which meant we were late for some of the activities or had to rearrange the schedule. It would be worth bearing in mind events which may have an impact on the trips. On the other hand some of the timings were too generous and so we had to find activities to fill the time on the spot. Luckily we could do but the activities did not feature in our risk assessment and so we were taking a risk by doing these. Overall though we had a wonderful trip and the experiences the students undertook were truly unforgettable! The Globe tour whereby we witnessed a live rehearsal was incredible also the workshop session post this was really engaging. The students and staff really loved the experience and we are hoping to book again it bext Year! Thanks for all of your help. It was most appreciated.

Wolverhampton GB
Great trip - only issue was traffic (not your fault!!!) and the coach drivers dropped us off at the general entrance rather than the schools entrance a couple of times meaning we had to walk all around the building to the correct entrance.
