Arthog midweek package

The 5 day programme for Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire schools is an 'all inclusive package'. This relieves school staff of the burden of course organisation, responsibility for checking the quality of provision and carrying out risk assessments. You can be reassured that as a Local Authority provision which is also inspected annually by the Adventure Activity Licensing Service you will be in receipt of a high quality of service that conforms to Local Authority Health and Safety policies and is subject to rigorous inspection.

The package includes:

  • The organisation and cost of your travel between school and Arthog;
  • All accommodation and food costs;
  • Your choice from our range of activities, all activity instruction and use of equipment;
  • All risk assessments  - barring that for the journey to and from Arthog, self-led activities and off programme supervision. Schools must risk assess these particular aspects of their visit.

A split week programme, Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday is chosen by some schools and is particularly suited to younger children experiencing their first trip away from home.

The same opportunities are available to schools and youth groups from outside of our local authority, the only significant difference being that the cost of transport to and from Arthog is not included.
