Heatherwood School
“Just wanted to drop you a short line to thank you and your staff for the part you played in helping us provide such a wonderfully positive visit for our young people; we achieved all we set out to and lived to tell the tale! You and the Centre staff did everything possible (and more) to ensure we were able to meet all the pupils’ needs: some of the pupil responses we saw were amazing. Now we’ve done it once we’d like to repeat it in the future.”

Willington Primary School
“This is our first experience of a residential, the staff and children have thoroughly enjoyed it and will be talking about the experience for a long time. Activities were varied and kept the children busy all the time. Staff liked the fact some activities ‘separated’ the group and gave the children opportunities to work with others and a chance to shine in a smaller group. There is no doubt we will come back and we can’t thank you enough for making our first experience so exciting, magical and challenging.”

Hodthorpe Primary School
“We love that the kids can learn to take risks in a safe and beautiful environment.”

Head of Year 7, Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy
“A huge thank you to you and all the staff who provided us with such a great day. Students were really buzzing with excitement both on the journey to and from Lea Green. So many of our students excelled themselves rising to the challenges of the day. I will certainly be recommending your centre to colleagues and look forward to returning again myself.”
