Book an in-school visit

Running A Day

From initial enquiry through to after the workshops have been delivered, we are committed to making things as straight forward and stress free for all staff involved.

It’s so easy we have even booked schools for a visit the next day (although it’s usually better to have a little more time to iron out the best timetable for your school day!) Here is a quick overview of what you need to know and there are some useful documents at the bottom of the page.

1. Simply let us know your requirements

By phone or email. Useful details to include:

  • School name & location
  • Which workshops you’re interested in
  • Year groups to participate & no. of pupils per year (roughly)
  • Hall availability times

Once you have told us your requirements, we will design a bespoke timetable based on the workshops you would like and your hall availability. We will then send this back to you for your approval / changes. If any alterations are required to this timetable after it has been agreed, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can amend our timetable. The day will run most smoothly if any alterations are communicated to us in advance of the booking, but if last minute alterations are required, please speak to your coach on the day. We can’t promise but we will do our best to accommodate these.

2. On the day

We bring our workshops to you, so all the games, activities and resources will be set up on the day. All we will need your school to provide is:

Fitness Sessions

3. Teacher involvement

Teachers are required to help supervise the children during all activities and we do ask that teachers get involved with the sessions to ensure that the children get as much as possible out of their day and the lessons learnt can be followed up in class afterwards.
