Frequently asked questions

  • Should our students bring their own packed lunch?
    Absolutely! We understand parents are keen to provide their children with a packed lunch filled with all their favourite foods. Alternatively, we can provide pre-made lunches on arrival if purchased in advance for a small supplement.
  • What toilet facilities will be on offer to my school group?
    Toilet facilities will be available to all groups with enhanced COVID-safe measures in place.
  • What will happen if it rains?
    We are all for embracing the great outdoors but appreciate no one wants soggy sandwiches! While we’ll still be able to operate activities, we will find locations for groups to eat their packed lunch in the dry.

    Your school will be kept strictly to their own ‘bubble’ with no mixing other students who may also be enjoying an activity day at Croft Farm.
