Changes to the format of the day

If you need to make any changes to the typical format for any reason, please contact us. We can change your visit to meet the needs of the year group, for example, altering the times or the activities.

Book your visit

During the day, your group will be based in one of our rooms on campus. This means you can bring a maximum of 45-50 students per group depending on room availability.

We aim to book the visit on your preferred date, but if this isn't possible we will let you know. We will confirm any bookings with you.
