Our School Trip

Special Needs Trip Resources

Our Really Wild School trips just got even more inclusive as we launch our new sensory guide and special educational needs guide!

Coming to Brandon Marsh and The Parkridge Centre for a school trip can be exciting, stimulating and so different to a normal school day and that’s why visiting children enjoy it so much!

But we know visitors with sensory conditions or additional needs can find certain parts of any different environment overwhelming at times. Our education team have worked hard to put together a sensory guide detailing sensory information about our centres, classrooms and educational activities. As well as this there’s a special guide about trips to both Brandon Marsh and The Parkridge Centre which contain a breakdown of how your trip will run, with pictures to ease anxiety.

  • Paper towels in the toilets to alleviate the use of noisy hand dryers where needed.
