Geography School Trips

Geography School Trips

Take your students out of the classroom to some of the most captivating environments and inspire them to see the world through the eyes of a geographer.

By exploring the landscape first-hand, students will gain a unique insight into the natural world and see the theory learnt in the classroom come to life. Difficult concepts will become easier to grasp as they connect with the environment around them, helping to deepen their understanding of the curriculum and drive their desire to learn.

To maximise the learning opportunities, we can provide you with multi award-winning study resources for use in the field and back in the classroom, as well as an expert Field Study Tutor for that extra bit of support, guidance and specialist geographical knowledge. 

With a selection of fascinating destinations to choose from, your students will be inspired to seek new adventures, challenge accepted theories and explore the world one corner at a time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What help do you have in Iceland to assist us in the event of future disruption?

    Our main accommodation centres are contracted solely to us and are able to offer substantial support in terms of advice, accommodation extension and local safety issues. One of the centres is earmarked as a rescue centre for the community should there be an eruption event. Alternatively we work with hotels in other locations, such as Reykjavik which we could utilise. Our Icelandic coach operator has robust transport resources to quickly implement changes.
  • Do your hotels comply with our Local Authority’s guidelines?

    All hotels are audited to standards set by the School Travel Forum (STF), this criteria is based on information and guidance from educational authorities. Whilst local laws and standards have to be taken into consideration, as they may differ from country to country, our standards do not. We are happy to provide copies of our hotel audits should you wish to see them.
  • Is our courier fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Trip Couriers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship couriers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Trip Couriers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.

  • Can I talk to Rayburn Tours whilst out on tour?

    Yes, a 24-hour emergency phone number will be provided in your final documents pack and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help with any problems you have whilst out on tour.
