Information for schools and groups

Paintball Park Kidderminster strives to provide a really enjoyable day out for schools and groups.  We understand how important it is for you to organise your visit in the finest detail so that it is a fun, successful visit. 

Let’s face it, taking your students to shoot at each other can be quite daunting. With that in mind, we have provided you with all the information you need to plan your day out including all the important information relevant to your risk assessment. 

Paintballing is a brilliant way for your students to have a great time with their friends, improve on their teamwork and get outside. If it's the start of the school year and you want the students to get to know each other a little more or if you want to plan a visit to reward students, get them to work on their teamwork or encourage positive behaviour with difficult students - a day of paintballing can be fantastic. Students in the past have been blown away by the fields and have returned many times. A school visit like this, can be just as rewarding for students and support character building, more memorable than visiting a museum or competing field work, it may also attract a different group of students who are sometimes disconnected from most school trips. 

We offer competitive prices for schools and groups and can include a discount for Pupil Premium students. 

Why our paintball park?

Paintball Park Kidderminster is situated in over 200 acres of woodland and everyone is kept under the expert supervision of our fully trained marshals. We have 8 fantastic game zones that will attract your students from the moment you mention this visit. You can include this information in your letter to parents and use the images from our website.

Fields include Battlefield which has a Lynx helicopter, a tank, a military ambulance and fire truck, military style 4x4s and a Bedford truck - get your history teachers interested as well. Another great field which school groups love is Junk in the Trunk, which is post-apocalyptic themed with abandoned vehicles, overturned cars and try tunnels. 

Schools and groups need to be from age 12, or in year 7 at school as a minimum. Your staff don't need to play paintball with the group but we encourage the staff to take part if they've been nice to the students all year. 

Pre-visits

If you need to complete a pre-visit so that your planning can be done in advance. As soon as you have made a booking for your school/group visit, you can book a date to come and be shown around the park. 

Call 0800 043 3858 or email bookings@paintballpark.co.uk and just ask to book a pre-visit with one of our team. 

Registration forms will be sent to you to fill out for each student so you don’t have to fill them out on the day just bring copies of them with you. 

Itinerary of the day

On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in. 

It is important that your staff wear their ID badges during the day, you won’t need to accompany the groups the paintball fields, unless you want to and tea and coffee is available at base camp. 

Your students will be kitted out with all the gear needed for the day and then have the compulsory safety talk, your staff need to be at this. Then the action begins! There will be 12-14 varied games during a full day session, with short refreshment breaks in between to reload paintballs and discuss tactics. 

The day can be personalised to suit your group needs and can be a half day experience. 

Clothing

Students should wear off, comfortable clothes and may also want to bring a change of clothes. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support and deep tread/ rubber soles -  it can be muddy, wet and slippery in the woodlands. Paintball gloves are available to buy at the centre, but we would advise school groups to bring their own. Students may want to bring some money for purchasing any additional paintballs or refreshments but usually groups would bring a packed lunch. 

First aid

Visiting schools and groups are responsible for the first aid needs of their group. Should a serious incident occur we have staff that are first aid trained. 

When the safety talk is given by our marshals - your staff will need to manage behaviour so that the students are listening to the really important rules of safety such as not removing their goggles during game play etc. 

Please note that our risk assessments are for guidance only and visit organisers are advised to complete their own risk assessment prior to a visit.
