Safety on Excursions

  • Road Safety

Please remember to be careful when crossing roads.

Remember: Look Right ~ Look Left ~ Look Right Again.

If possible, use pedestrian crossings, bridges or underpasses.

  • Coach Travel

Please remain seated when the coach is moving.

Please wear the lap-strap provided.

If you suffer from motion sickness sit near the front.

Sorry, the coach will not “drop-off” at any point on the return journey.

Remember: We give the times the coach leaves from each stop. You should be on the coach, sitting-down and ready to depart, at least 5 minutes earlier!

  • Weather

Remember, the weather in Britain changes very quickly!

Please use sun-block if the sun is shining.

Please bring a waterproof coat.

  • Water

Please be careful near water. It may be cold and deep!

Remember, rivers may have strong currents.

Remember, tidal water has strong currents and moves! Do not get cut-off!

  • Theft

Thieves like crowded areas (like the centre of cities and tourist attractions). Please look after your belongings.

  • Signs

Please obey all sign and instructions.

  • Additional stops

Excursions start and finish from Holgate Park. The coaches cannot stop to collect or to drop off students at any other point
