Joint Annual Holiday 2018 – Frank Chapman Centre, Birmingham

Frank Chapman Centre
Birmingham

Monday 2nd April – Saturday 7th April 2018

This year we are returning to The Frank Chapman Centre at Bewdley, near Birmingham.

The Frank Chapman Centre

This centre has only been used by the company once before, in 2015, and both the boys and the staff have had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and found the centre to be of excellent quality. The centre is a large self-catering purpose built facility within its own extensive grounds. We will have exclusive use of The Frank Chapman Centre and its facilities; which includes a large High-Ropes course, Archery, and much more. As in previous years this will be a joint holiday with the Juniors and Company Section, although each section will be running their own programme of activities.

4x4 Driving Experience

Dining Room

Activities for the holiday have now been finalised and these can be seen below. As normal we plan to use the centre as a base to visit attractions such as Alton Towers Theme Park, Quad Biking, Segway Riding and even Rifle Shooting. As well as more local activities such as a Safari Park, Swimming, Ten-Pin Bowling and a visit to the cinema.

Junior Section & Company Section – Annual Holiday 2018

As you know, this year we have booked the Frank Chapman Centre in Bewdley near Birmingham for our annual holiday, from Monday 2nd to Saturday 7th April 2018 (first week of the school Easter holidays). The centre is self-catering and is situated in its own grounds. We will have exclusive use of the centre and its facilities which include a large TV and games room, and a High-Ropes course.

As previously this will be a joint holiday with both the Junior Section and Company Section holidaying together, however the sections will be accommodated within separate areas of the centre and will operate largely separate programmes of activities; coming together mainly for meals.

Activities for the duration of our stay have been finalised and we will share more on these soon.

BB Supplies

We have been getting some requests around where uniform can be purchased from. To help with this we have now added a page to the main menu that provides details of BB supplies UK and local depots.
