1.1 Bookings

1.1.1 Onsite visits, outreach visits to your site and virtual learning sessions are dependent on availability and are only available to pre-booked groups.

1.1.2 A provisional booking notification email will be sent within five days of submission of a Learning Programme Online Booking Form.

1.1.3 Bookings must then be confirmed within 14 days of receipt of the provisional booking notification email, or the provisional booking will be removed from our system.

1.1.4 Bookings will be confirmed following agreement to these Terms and Conditions in the Learning Booking Confirmation form.


1.2 Cancellations

1.2.1 Confirmed bookings cancelled more than 6 weeks (42 days) in advance of the visit/session are subject to an £80 cancellation fee.

1.2.2 Bookings can be moved to another date without penalty, up to a maximum of 2 times if the visit/session is more than 6 weeks (42 days), subject to availability. Any further date changes will be considered a cancellation and subject to cancellation fees as above.

1.2.3 Confirmed visits cancelled within 6 weeks (42 days) of visit/session date will be required to pay the full cost of the visit/session.

1.2.4 Visit/session cancellations and alterations must be made in writing to [email protected].

1.2.5 In the unlikely event that Bletchley Park Trust is required to alter or cancel a booked educational visit/session (e.g. due to site closure during extreme weather events), groups will be notified as soon as possible and Bletchley Park Trust will work to find alternative visit dates/activities or will offer a full refund of any affected services or activities if rebooking is not possible.

1.2.6 Bletchley Park Trust is not responsible for any third-party costs incurred as a result of any cancellation.


1.3 Payment

1.3.1 Universities and colleges will be required to provide a purchase order number to enable a booking to be made.

1.3.2 Invoices will be issued at 6 weeks (42 days) prior to your visit and must be paid within 30 days. Failure to do so will result in your booking being cancelled.

1.3.3 For booking confirmed in under within 6 weeks (42 days), invoices will be issued immediately and must be paid prior to the visit. Failure to do so will result in your booking being cancelled.

1.3.4 Payment can be made via credit card or BACS. Any card or BACS payments must be made with sufficient time to allow funds to be cleared.


1.4 Data Protection

1.4.1 Bletchley Park Trust may use your personal information (and the personal information of any other visitors included in your application) for processing your application, responding to any enquiry you or other members of your group make, and for generating aggregated statistics regarding visits to Bletchley Park.

1.4.2 In addition, Bletchley Park Trust may, subject to your consent, send you emails, newsletters and/or alerts and information regarding learning events.  Bletchley Park Trust will not sell your data.  Bletchley Park Trust will not use your data for marketing purposes unless you have actively consented to this.  Please see our Privacy policy, which can be found on our website, for more details on what information we collect about you and how it will be used.


1.5 Bursary funding

1.5.1 Bletchley Park Trust has limited funding available for schools who meet certain criteria linked to local deprivation and Pupil Premium levels.

1.5.2 The eligibility of a school is at the discretion of Bletchley Park Trust and will be confirmed in writing.

1.5.3 Eligible schools who are awarded the bursary may choose:
– a full-day visit from the Outreach programme completely free of charge – all expenses are covered as well as the visit costs, or
– a funded visit to Bletchley Park, which includes a £7 transport subsidy per student.

1.5.4 Interested schools must state that they would like to be considered for a bursary-funded visit and give details of their Pupil Premium (or equivalent) funding as a percentage of students on roll who are eligible to receive it.

1.5.5 Eligibility criteria may change based on available funding remaining and other factors. For this reason, specific criteria for eligibility are not published and eligibility during one academic year does not imply eligibility during the next.

1.5.6 It is assumed that the percentage of children attending learning activities will match (or exceed) the stated percentage of students eligible for Pupil Premium funding on roll at the school. If this is not the case the bursary will not apply, and regular costs will be invoiced by Bletchley Park.

1.5.7 For bursary visits cancelled within six weeks (42 days) of the visit, the bursary will not apply and schools will be charged an £80 cancellation fee.


1.6 Other

1.6.1 Sufficient school/college staff and carers must be present to supervise all students during all activities and sessions. We are fully committed to providing a safe learning environment, but Bletchley Park staff are not responsible for the health, safety and behaviour of students and must not be left in sole charge of any students.

1.6.2 Photography and video recording is not permitted except by prior written permission.

1.6.3 Bletchley Park Trust reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time and by submitting a Learning Booking you agree to abide by the most recent version.

2.17 As Learning visits are already discounted, all other discounts, including 2:1 rail fares, do not apply.

2.18 Part of our mission is to preserve and enhance Bletchley Park, including the historic floors around the site. To minimise damage to our historic floors, sharp heeled shoes (heels which cover an area smaller than a postage stamp) are not permitted.  Heel protectors can be provided but we would appreciate your support and understanding of this policy, and we therefore recommend that flat shoes are worn to site.
