SEND Week

Join us for SEND Week, an inclusive experience with special facilities and resources just for you and your pupils!

Do you want to bring your SEND students to the Alton Towers Resort but have concerns over the hustle and bustle of a theme park?

Visit us during our SEND event for a fully supported, extra special experience and brand new facilities just for your students.

As well as ride access bands for SEND students and one to one carers admitted free of charge, we have our large relaxation room (SEND HQ) with activities and staff, available to you all day.

Your students can take a break from their excitement in our SEND HQ, a great indoor space to meet up at or use as your base. Inside your students can enjoy the sensory toys and activities or enjoy some time in one of our themed sensory tents. Our brand new sensory tents are designed to envelop the senses and immerse your students in a calm, relaxing atmosphere.

We also have optional Mindfulness sessions for your students, running throughout the week with the award winning Julia Ford from Stoke on Trent Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services. Students learn how to recognize their emotional responses and how to use strategies to self-regulate. It’s a perfect opportunity to relax your students and learn a little more about using Mindfulness strategies with your class.

Julia and her team will be available throughout the week to chat to about her experience working with SEND students and schools in the UK.

Latest information regarding Coronavirus

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Alton Towers Resort until further notice.

Have a short break booked when the Resort is closed?
Following the latest Government guidelines (issued on 10th May), and given the continued uncertainty about when we will be able to reopen, we are now asking guests with short breaks booked between 1st June up to and including 3rd July to move your booking free of charge. Please see the FAQs below for information about how to do this. Our teams will be moving bookings in date order, so please bear with us. We will get back to you as fast as we can, but we must prioritise guests whose reservations are imminent.

Have a Park ticket pre-booked when the Resort is closed?
Guests with pre-booked theme park tickets for dates when the Alton Towers Theme Park is closed will be able to use their tickets on any other day during the 2020 theme park season (excluding Fireworks events on 6th, 7th and 8th November). Further information for guests with pre-booked and promotional tickets will be published on our website prior to opening.

In our 40th Birthday season, we are determined to be here for you and your families, offering awesome thrills and fantastic memories, as we have done for decades and will continue to do for many more.
We’ll be sharing our full plans soon.
In the meantime, please keep smiling, clapping and supporting each other.

See you soon! #AltonTowersTogether
