About our School Team Building Sessions

How many children can take part in a School Team Building Event?

We usually have teams of 6 – 10 people per team and we can happily run School Team Building Events for up to 120 children.

Can anyone take part in a School Team Building Event?

We generally work with secondary school children on School Team Building Events but we can also work with the years 4, 5 and 6 at primary age as well.

Can a School Team Building Event operate in bad weather?

Yes provided the children have dressed appropriately for the weather then we will carry on as long as it is safe to do so. If ground conditions become too slippery we may need to make some adjustments to the sessions we run.

What you need

What space do you need to run a School Team Building Event?

We generally require a large area of flat grass to set up on with direct vehicle access for the vans.  We could look at running a version indoors if you had a large space such as a hall or maybe a large Sports Centre or we could fit some smaller games into smaller indoor space as well.   Some Team Building sessions will be able to run on hard standing but it will reduce the session choice slightly.

When do you run Team Building Events?

We run Team Building sessions throughout the year however during the Winter months the activity selection may be reduced due to the weather and ground conditions.

Do the activities require a power supply?

Most of our traditional Team Building Events do not require a power supply but a few of the Inflatable ones will need power. For outdoor events where a power supply is unavailable, Altitude Events can supply generators on prior request (this is subject to a small additional cost).

Do I need to supply anything or does your Team Building package come with everything it needs?

Other than a venue to set up on, we supply everything required to run the games.

How long does a Team Building Event take to set up and run?

Depending on the ease of access, the event will take our staff between 1 and 3 hours to set up.  We usually suggest 1 to 2.5hrs as a good event length to give some variety but every event is different so please contact us and we will try and put together a package to suit your needs.


Do the games come with staff to run the activities?

Yes, our staff (CRB/DBS checked and 1st aid trained) will remain with the games throughout your event. They will give all players a detailed briefing of how the zone works and run/score the games for you.

How safe are School Team Building Events?

Sessions are run by fully trained, experienced staff members (staff are first aid trained and CRB/DBS checked). We also operate with £10 million public liability insurance and have full risk assessments. All our Inflatables have an annual safety test carried out and all electrical items are PAT tested for electrical safety.


How much does it cost to book a School Team Building Event?

We will tailor-make each School Team Building quote to the specifics of an enquiry dependent on factors such as your venue address, date of hire, number of participants, etc.

Are there any additional costs?

The quote we send to you is all-inclusive so there are no hidden extras to be wary of.

How do I book?

Give us a call or send an e-mail and we can check your desired date(s) for availability and give you a quote. When you are ready to confirm, we will send out a booking form complete with the booking terms and conditions to check over. Once filled in, please return it to us along with payment.  We take a 25% deposit to secure a booking date and the balance is due 1 month before the hire date. Then sit back and count down the days until we arrive!

Are there options to customize our hire to advertise a product or event?

Staff uniform can certainly be tailored to advertise a chosen product or event and if you do have any other specific ideas please do get in touch and we can see how we can help!

How far will Altitude travel for an event?

Although we are based in the South East, we will travel anywhere to do an event.  However, if it is very far from our base, the price will reflect this. Primarily our School Team Building Events are held in East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Essex, Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and London.  Please contact us for further information if this is something that you would be interested in.

A quick note to say thank you 🙂 Fred and Tom were a joy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable, great teachers, very flexible and above all totally professional. Many of the participants told me how much they enjoyed the session and made reference to Fred and Tom. Having people like that as part of my support team makes my life so much easier. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Colin Smith, Corporate Day

Thank you very much to you and all of your team for organising such a great day on Tuesday. The whole day was run very efficiently and smoothly; the size of groups and activities chosen were ideal, and the element of competition was well worth having. The communication before the day was first rate and all the pupils really enjoyed it. The only problem was that the older pupils who turned up for games in the afternoon were very grumpy that they had not enjoyed such a day when they were in Year 9!

Richard Cook, School Enrichment Day

Just wanted to reserve a date with you for next year. The feedback from the boys and staff was very encouraging and we would like to repeat the event next year. I don’t know how far in advance you are able to make a provisional/firm booking, but if you could keep this date in mind, I would be grateful. Enjoy the summer and thanks again for a great activity day.

Activity Day at a Grammar School in Kent for 140 x 12yr olds.

The Altitude Events stand was the most popular stand by far and Mark was a credit to your organisation. He was the first exhibitor to be set up and the last to leave. Awesome member of staff and Altitude Events added some much needed tactile bompf to the event. Many thanks for responding to my last minute plea for help and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Paul Straitt, Team Building and Inititive Games for a College Student Event, East London

Thank you so much for making our “AMAZING” day. The kids loved absolutely every minute of the Altitude experience rooms and outside activities. Your whole team were brilliant! From start to finish. Everyone wanted another go at everything because they loved it so much! You have been so helpful in organising this HUGE event for our school which I thank you for immensely. If we ever have anything like that again I will definitely be in touch. Thanks to you and all your staff.

Clair Ross, Primary School Activity Day, Lewisham

Thank you for your smoothe operation of yesterday. Have a great Summer and I will be in touch again in the Autumn. Please send me your customary e-mail reminder to jog my memory when its time to book!
