School Sports Tours to
Spain

With a fantastic climate, golden beaches and a sport-crazy population, Spain is an affordable beach destination that’s perfect for sports tours.

In particular, its rich tradition of sporting history and success make it ideal for football, rugby, hockey and basketball teams.

As such a popular destination in all of our departments, we know the best excursions to offer your team, helping to strengthen your sports tour to support curriculum values. We work closely with local experts, so our extensive fixture database is full of suitable clubs and schools for your team to play against.

The Catalonia region is by far the most popular with our groups, based in the picturesque coastal resorts of the Costa Brava as well as the artistic city of Barcelona. Steeped in sporting history and home to giants of the game, including FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol, Barcelona is a great city to arrange competitive fixtures in.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.

  • 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.
