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.

Have a short break booked before 25th April? We can move your stay date with no extra cost!

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Alton Towers Resort as a precautionary measure.

For guests with short breaks arriving up to and including 25th April 2020, we have relaxed our usual terms and conditions so you can now reschedule your break to another date in the 2020 season with no additional cost*

Please visit the Manage My Booking site and complete the booking amendment form, including your booking reference and the preferred date you would like to rearrange your booking to. Our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Alton Towers Resort soon. Thank you for your patience.

*Subject to availability, please provide 3 alternative dates in order of preference, dates allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note – if you have booked a partner Hotel (a Hotel off site), most will honour the price you booked at, however there are a small number which cannot, we will let you know based on the dates you choose.
