Prison escape

We would like to invite all our students (7yrs & above) and families to an afternoon of fun & teamwork at The Prison Island in Maidstone.

  • Do you like a challenge?
  • Do you like working in a team?
  • Children – do you think you can beat the adults?
  • Who has both physical & mental skills?

Here is some information about the centre: Prison Island

You can enter as a team of 3 or 4 or if you are coming on your own we will put together a team for you.  Each team competes against one another to see who can solve the most challenges in an hour.  Parents, are you feeling brave enough to take on the children?

The plan for the day is:

  • Saturday, 20th July 2019
  • Prison Island, Maidstone
  • 4:00 – 5:00pm
  • Under 16yrs: £15.00
  • 16yrs & over: £22.50

For those interested we would like to suggest going for some food after.  Please let us know if you are interested in eating after so that we can book a suitable restaurant.

To book your space(s):

  1. e-mail or speak to your Instructor in class
  2. we will only confirm your space(s) once you have paid in full
  3. arrange your own team or let us know if you would like us to sort this
  4. give yourself a team name (if applicable)
  5. Let us know if you would like to come for food after

We have currently reserved only 20 spaces which we predict will go quickly!

Canterbury, 17th Oct – UPDATE

Posted on: October 17th, 2018 by David Finch

All classes will now be held upstairs in the Sports Hall (6th form area) and NOT the main sports hall.

Space will be a bit tight so unfortunately parents will be asked to wait outside.  Please bring your children upstairs for the start of the class and we will collect them at the entrance to the room.  At the end of the class we will walk the children downstairs to meet you.

Many thanks for your understanding.
