I just wanted to a say a huge BIG THANK YOU for an amazing day we had last Wednesday. The children absolutely loved every minute of it and didn't stop talking about the things they did and saw.
We are so lucky to have such an inspiring educational centre near by and we are already looking forward to coming back next year!
I would just like to thank all of the staff at The Observatory Science Centre for providing our Year 5 children with an excellent experience on Tuesday. We had a great time!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the staff for making the day such a great success. The children (and staff) not only enjoyed themselves but experienced so many new and exciting things. There were so many moments of complete joy and wonder from the children captured on some super photos. This was a day they won’t forget in a hurry. It supported our national curriculum objectives brilliantly and the robotic arms workshop has given us a fantastic stimulus for explanatory text writing next week. Thank you for an amazing day!
Please don't change - this is one of our favourite trips. You guys are simply amazing. We're so grateful that wonderful places like this are available to enthuse the pupils.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip. Everything on the day was 'Excellent'. The children, staff and parents really enjoyed the day and will definitely book again for next year!
5 out of 5 in all categories: Thank you SO much for a fantastic visit, the class are still talking about it even though we've moved on to a new topic. The observatory has given them memories that will last for a long time.
Thank you for an awesome and inspiring evening full of captivating activities.
Thank you so much for today and for all your hard work that you and your team clearly do. Everyone was so helpful and friendly too. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much.
Thank you and your team for another excellent day out - well organised and managed as always. It is always such a pleasure coming to you because I know that once we are there everyone will enjoy themselves and they learn so much too while having a lot of fun. Even the weather didn't dampen their spirits. The variety of activities means there is something of particular interest for everyone. The trip contributes greatly to the success of our summer school as a whole so thank you again for all you did and do.
It was a fantastic day. Very well organised and the activities were fabulous. It took the weight off our shoulders completely as your whole team were brilliant and well experienced. Will definitely be coming back next year! Thank you for a fab day!
Outstanding day out! We all- teachers, children and volunteer parents said what a superb experience it was. The only issue was that children wanted to spend far longer exploring everything than we had time for due to coaches time constraints. We will be back next year - without a doubt!
Please pass on our thanks to your excellent staff. Thank you so much for making our annual trip so enjoyable again. The pupils (Year 7) had a fabulous time (as always) and we are ever grateful for your enthusiasm and patience. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Fantastic organisation and such a safe and friendly place for a school trip.
Mesmerized for the whole day: we can't thank you enough for making our day (yesterday) an unforgettable one. Every single adult on our trip was hugely impressed with the organisation, educational resources and with the staff. The taught sessions were pitched to an entirely appropriate level.
Thank you for such a fun and informative visit. The children really consolidated their learning on light, sound and electricity. A special mention to the member of staff who ran our light and colour workshop. She had a great way with our children (all with speech and language difficulties) and pitched the session just right for their needs.
What a fantastic day we had yesterday! All children and adults were buzzing all the way back to school. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and attention to detail.
The students found the Observatory to be quite fascinating and I know that a number of them would like to visit again during the evening, with the possibility of viewing some stars and planets.
Whole Primary School Visit. I just wanted to say thank you for an absolutely fantastic day. The children really enjoyed their experience, as did the adults! It was really super the way that you had planned out the day for us, everything flowed very nicely. A good time was had by all and I would definitely recommend you to other schools.
I have been teaching since 1991 and have not visited another science based facility that can match what The Centre has to offer -superb.
This won't take long...
