Ice Skating is a fantastic leisure pastime that offers tons of fun and also opens competitive pathways for those that want to further their skills into competition.

As school visits aim to engage young people in a safe environment and offer them an experience that will hopefully inspire them to be more active, be more creative, and communicate together in a positive manner…..and generally have a really fun time that will forge memories.

In order to achieve this, we have some fantastic offers for School Groups, whether it’s for an end of term activity or a regular booking as an alternative PE lesson with one of our fully qualified professional ice skating coaches.

Ice Skating is an activity that is suitable for all ages and abilities. Our staff will always be happy to welcome your group to the Ice Rink, and we can tailor your visit to suit your own requirements, adapting to any special requirements.

£4.00 per head to skate in term time daytime sessions (see timetable), price includes skates package.

£6.50 per head to skate in term time daytime sessions (see timetable) to include skates package, gloves, and socks.

£30.00 for approved Coach (DBS checked) for up 15 people (price also included an assistant on the ice) to deliver a 30 minute lesson.

Recommendation

Yesterday we brought 77 children from St Andrews Primary School in Kettering to Planet ice to experience ice skating as part of our life in the freezer topic. I would like to thank all of the staff for making the trip a wonderful experience. Our deputy headteacher accompanied us on the trip and said that it was the best school trip he had ever been on!

The team at planet ice made us all feel extremely welcome and ensured that the children got the most out of the experience that they could. The
children that attend our school come from a deprived area and many of them had never been skating before. This experience allowed them to take risks and allow them to believe that they can achieve anything that they set their hearts on. Experiences like this allow children to believe in themselves and are invaluable for teaching them that there is more in life to experience. So once again thank you very much for facilitating such a wonderful day.
