Brought to you by Great Yarmouth Borough Council as part of the Town Centre Initiative, skating is a fun activity for everyone to enjoy. Wheelchair users can also get on the ice - see the booking information for more details.

School Skating sessions

Enjoy a pre-Christmas outing with a group of children from your school to skate on the real ice rink in Great Yarmouth. 

School skating sessions can be booked from 10am until 2pm on any week day from Monday 27 November to Tuesday 19 December. A skating session lasts for 45 minutes and starts on the hour.

School groups should be at the skate marquee 15 minutes before their start time to exchange shoes for skates. Exclusivity can be given to your school group – the sooner you book, the easier we can do this.

Whilst most children take to the ice like ducks to water and thoroughly enjoy their session, please bear in mind that the use of an ice rink and it's facilities has an inherent risk. To make things easier, we’re happy to advise that required ratio adults can skate for free.

For pupils in years 1 to 3, a maximum of six pupils to one free adult
For pupils in years 4 to 6, a maximum of 15 pupils to one free adult
For pupils in year 7 and above, a maximum of 20 pupils to one free adult
