Smoking & Alcohol

Smoking in all areas of the campus is forbidden, as is the consumption of alcohol by students under 18. We hold a list of all students under 18 to ensure their safety and well-being on the course, although parents should be aware that this is primarily a course for adults and as such we do not offer 24 hour supervision.

First Aid

Course staff will be available at all times to provide First Aid and any other emergency care or support to students. However we must be made aware of any existing conditions which might require specialist assistance.


We take photographs and make recordings during the course for use in our leaflets and on our websites (  Please let us know in writing, at the time of booking, if you are unwilling to be included in this.
