Add a 'teacher experience'

Please use this space to advise teachers on how to get the most out of their trip. From our research, teachers would particularly like to read about:

  • How well did the trip support your objectives?
  • Were there any particular parts of the venue that were more or less useful for this?
  • Is there anything you wish you’d known before your trip?
  • What were the adverse weather facilities like? (if applicable)
  • Do you have any advice/comments about the facilities e.g. lunch arrangements?
  • What was the quality of the staff led guided session like? (if applicable)
  • What suggestions do you have for pre or post-visit activities

I certify that I have recently taken a group of children/young people to this venue on an educational trip. My 'teacher experience' is a reflection of my genuine opinion and experience of this venue and does not name staff. I do not have any other associations with this venue and they have not offered me any incentives to write it.
