Polka Dot Planning can help you plan a visit to an innovative school. Using years of experience we can match your visit requirements to one of the unique schools we have a relationship with. In addition to that the PDP team are able to provide many other services to complement the visit experience. We can organise your…..

Visits to schools

Tell us what you need and we will use our experience to make sure the visit we arrange for you is to an engaging and inspirational school suitable to the needs of your group.


We can arrange your lunch on the day of your visit by booking it with the school, who can serve your food in school or To Go.  Alternatively we can organise your lunch with an external specialist catering service.


We are ready to arrange your travel to and from your school whether it be via train, car, taxi, mini bus or coach. All can be booked through us. Really take the stress away and let us organise your flights and airport transfers!


We use our experience and knowledge to source and book the best value accommodation for our clients. Whether you need 1 hotel room or 40, our team will provide you with options to suit both budget and location.

Meeting and Conference Rooms

Whether your meeting is impromptu or your conference carefully scheduled months in advance, our team will help you find the perfect venue to suit all your needs.

Meals and Entertainment

We can take the stress away by making reservations for evening meals, no matter what size group. Or maybe you want a night out at the theatre? Just let us know how we can help.
