Welcome to Go Central

Welcome to Go Central

Arrivals

Please aim to arrive at Kingham Hill School from 2.00 pm on Saturday 22nd July (please note that rooms will not be available and leaders will not be able to supervise young people before this time). We will register you on arrival, then show you your boarding house and introduce you to your team.  We will have a few games, refreshments and then a short tour of the School where we are staying.

Parents are welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee and use the facilities before returning home.

By Car, there are many parking spaces in the school grounds for those coming by car. Once at the venue our team will direct you to Registration.

The nearest train station is three miles away in Kingham (please note that we are no longer able to offer a shuttle service from the station to the venue, due to the introduction of the Package Travel Regulations).

accommodation

The young people’s rooms have between 2 and 6 bed/s each with bathroom/shower facilities nearby.  We will locate young people in their small group (SUS group) in rooms together; their leader will be in a room nearby.  We will do our best to meet your sharing requests, but this is not always possible.  All bedding is provided but please bring a towel.

Each boarding house has a big common room, good for meeting friends, playing games and hanging out.  Leaders will always be nearby to chat and facilitate the fun and games.

ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME

Our afternoon and evening activities divide into three types:

  • ‘All in’ activities – great fun team events where everyone enjoys being together.
  • Optional activities – where we can choose from 3 or 4 options including sport, craft, or alternative choices.
  • Activity Day – We will enjoy one Feature Day of great activity and competition.

photos

Each year we hope to take some general photos or video during the week that may be used for publicity, uploaded on our website or shared on social media sites.  We hope to upload any photos on the public ‘Contagious’ Facebook group, so we encourage everyone to join our group. It is almost impossible to control the use of social media by young people at Contagious.

If you have particular concerns about social media, photographs or publicity, please inform the Contagious Team by emailing admin@contagious.org.uk.

CONDUCT

I’m sure we will have no issues, but we would like to remind you of the Booking Terms & Conditions that you agreed to when booking online; this will ensure that you are aware of what behaviour is expected during the week.
