Sleeping

If your child is coming to our summer school with a friend, we can usually arrange for them to share or be nearby. Girls and boys sleep separately, and rooms are also divided by age so you can be sure that your child will be sharing with others of the same sex and age group.

We have a mixture of dorms and single rooms.

Safety

We want you to sleep well knowing your child is safe with us. We have an excellent safety record. The systems we have in place to ensure safety and security in our summer schools have received praise from parents, staff and visitors:

  • Each Child is registered in at least 6 times per day
  • We safety-check every area before activities are allowed to take place
  • The staff team lock up each night to ensure all areas are safe and secure.
  • Our staff undergo full training before camp starts each year.
  • All our staff under go suitability checks. We use the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) and the Barred list to carry these out.
  • We have experienced and suitably qualified staff in charge of children's health and well being. They look after ill children, medicine administration, hygiene and cleanliness

If you'd like to call and chat about specific safety issues at camp please do contact us. If you have the time, please have a look at our Policies and Procedures.

When they arrive at summer school, each child is introduced to their dorm leader, who they can talk to at any time if they need any support or advice.

Children have access to computers where (supervised) they can check emails and keep in regular contact with their family
