We go above and beyond to protect the safety and wellbeing of everyone in our care.

Our long-standing dedication to safety has led to us holding over 15 governing and safety accreditations, and we voluntarily apply for Ofsted inspections to be on the Childcare Register.

Everything we do is built on five protective pillars:

Safe people banner

Safe People People are at the heart of all we do. From our ‘safer recruitment’ process (including enhanced DBS for all centre colleagues) to our in-depth training programmes, continuous development and supervision, we go the extra mile to ensure our guests are in the safest of hands.

Safe places banner

Safe Places Our centres are continuously monitored, maintained and risk-assessed by dedicated teams to ensure our places are safe and secure, always. What’s more, ongoing investment in our locations is powering breakthroughs in guest comfort and satisfaction.

Safe spaces banner

Safe Spaces We believe adventure is for everyone. We’ve developed our spaces with SEND, accessibility and inclusivity in mind, and can make further adjustments for guests’ individual needs wherever possible – our goal is to deliver enriching experiences for all.

FAQ

What’s included in the cost of the PGL trip?

Everything your school or group needs is included in the cost of the camp at Newby Wiske Hall, with accommodation, activities, equipment, food and drinks all covered in the price per person!

What happens in the evenings?

The fun doesn’t stop after the day’s activities! After dinner, our evening entertainment programme will keep your class or group amused until  it’s time for bed. We’ve got discos, campfires, quizzes and loads more! We want to create a schedule perfect for your group, so if you have anything in particular then just let us know and we’ll do our best to plan it into your group’s itinerary!

What should I pack for my child's overnight stay?

Here are some of the essential items that you should pack for your child. For a full list of what to pack, see our packing guide.

  • Tops/t-shirts (for daily adventure activities)
  • Trousers/leggings (for daily adventure activities)
  • Evening clothes (for discos, quizzes, evening games and more)
  • Swimwear (for our thrilling Aqua Park and other water activities)
  • Towels

Does my child need waterproofs for their residential trip?

Yes, we recommend that your child brings a waterproof for their time at Newby Wiske Hall. If it starts raining while we’re all enjoying the outdoor adventure activities, everyone in the group can just throw on their waterproof and we’ll simply carry on!

Does my child need to bring money?

As we have a gift shop on site, your child can bring money if they’d like to buy a souvenir to take home. For the amount, we suggest £10 per child, in cash or on a pre-paid card. There’s so much to choose from at our gift shop, with caps t-shirts, teddy bears, mugs, pens, and even a uniformed group badge so your child can show everyone that they’ve been to PGL with their group!

Can I contact my child during their camp stay?

Absolutely! If your child is bringing a mobile phone to Newby Wiske Hall then they can give you a call during their free time. You can find the times when children are able to use their phones at our centres in our Mobile Phone Policy. If your child doesn’t have their phone available, then our team are always available to support them if they would like to call home. You can also get in touch with your child by calling the Newby Wiske Hall centre or through the contact numbers provided by your child’s group leader.

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

We do cater for special dietary requirements. Whether for religious, cultural or medical reasons, we can support your child’s or anyone in your group’s diet. When you book, just let us know and we’ll take it from there. We regularly provide meals for coeliacs, diabetics, guests with food allergies and vegetarians/vegans.

What safety measures are in place at Newby Wiske?

We have a huge emphasis on safety, starting with the recruitment of our staff and continuing through to all of our activities. As a founder member of BAPA (British Activity Providers Association) and a licence holder for activities in scope of AALA (Adventure Activities Licencing Authority) regulations, we make safety our priority.

A risk assessment has also been carried out at Newby Wiske Hall with risks being outlined and managed. The risk assessment covers the grounds of Newby Wiske Hall, as well as all of the activities available at the centre.

Our Activity Instructors are experts in their area, trained and assessed both in-house and by external assessors. They’ll be there during every activity to make sure they’re completed safely and correctly.

New staff complete a comprehensive induction and job specific training followed by regular observations, feedback, reviews and assessments.
