Religious Studies School Trips to
Rome, Italy

Religious Studies School Trips to
Rome, Italy

Rome is arguably one of the most important cities of the Roman Catholic faith and gives students the opportunity to reflect on a wealth of religious heritage, as well as explore their beliefs in the ‘real world’.

It’s simply bursting with enriching experiences for Religious Studies students, whether it be attending a Papal Audience participation session in St Peter’s Square or simply exploring the countless basilicas and churches that the city houses.

Being in one of the core destinations of Christianity, students will develop informed insights on fundamental questions relating to identity, belonging, purpose, truth, values and commitments. As a result, they are much better positioned to express their own personal responses and discuss differing views that may arise within the group.

Along their journey they will also visit numerous places of worship, develop an increased understanding of the reasons for Pilgrimage and have an opportunity to gain an enriching insight into one of the world’s most influential religions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to do to ensure safe travel for my group?

    Information is available from your Local Authority on what is expected from party leaders on a school trip. In addition, we are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. Further advice and information can be found on the OEAP National Guidance website.
  • Do you provide risk assessments for the visits you offer?

    You can download our Generic Risk Management Handbook which will help you complete your risk assessment for your school or Local Authority. The aim of the handbook is to provide all tour leaders with supportive suggestions to help raise awareness to risk, suggest control measures to help mitigate the risk and manage risk pro-actively. For further assistance, please speak to a member of our team who will be happy to help.

  • What happens if flights are operating but we decide we do not want to travel?

    If there has been no official advice against travel, yet your group has opted to cancel, then your cancellation is totally subject to our booking conditions. However, we will always work with you to try and minimise the financial effect and find the best solution for you.
