Welcome to MAX South West


Please arrive at Blundell’s School, at 3pm on the 5th of August.

There are lots of parking spaces in the school grounds for those coming by car. Once at the venue our team will direct you to Registration and where to find your group. Parents are welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee and use the facilities before returning home.

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. 


The young people will be placed in boarding houses. We will locate young people in their small group (SUS group) in rooms together; their leader will be in a room nearby.
