Small Group or Individual Student Days are designed to bring together individual students, home schooled students, schools with small class sizes, or students that were unable to attend a residential or alternative trip.

These courses are for groups of 9 or less students from any one school. If a students is not accompanied by a responsible adult, their parent/carer must have a completed and returned an Unaccompanied Young People form to us, available in our Customer Information
