5 reasons to start planning your Educational Trip

Last updated: Jan 30th, 2019

The summer holidays are well under way and we hope that you’re making the most of the sunny days (and avoiding the downpours), taking the opportunity to recharge and enjoy yourself!

For many of you, the school holidays are also the time to get prepared and ready for the new term, so we wanted to share with you why now is the perfect time to start thinking about your next Educational School Trip.

Top 5 reasons to start planning your Educational School Trip:

1.   Time to plan

As a teacher, term time can only be described as ‘hectic’, so starting to plan your educational experience during the holidays can help to take the pressure off. Don’t forget, we’re here to guide and support you through the trip planning process to make it as straightforward and stress free as possible.

2.   Supporting the new curriculum

With the new curriculum being taught from September, many of you will spend time during the holidays getting to grips with how to teach this effectively.

Our ‘Curricular Links’ approach means that each of our tailor-made tours are designed to explore a variety of topics in-line with the new requirements and support your specific learning needs.

3.   New term, new adventure

What better way to get your students enthused at the start of a new term than with the promise of an awe-inspiring trip to experience the subject first-hand in the wider world?

4.   Beat the rush

Many teachers will wait until the new school year has started to begin planning their next Educational School Trip. Getting in touch with us now to start the ball rolling means that we are much more likely to have availability for your group on your preferred dates.

5.   Try something new

We have a wide variety of new and exciting experiences for you to try with your students. From embarking on a glacier walk at an altitude of 3,000 metres at Switzerland’s Glacier 3000 mountain station to honouring the thousands of victims at the National September 11 Memorial Museum, there is something for everyone.
