School Language Trips

School Language Trips

Let your students live their chosen language by immersing them in the country and culture.

A school language trip will not only let your students engage in real-life opportunities to help develop their existing skills and grow in confidence, but it will give them a real insight into the country’s culture, people and way of life. More than that, a school language trip will create long-lasting memories and a desire to continue learning.

From lively cities to relaxed provincial towns, we have a range of destinations to suit all students studying French, German and Spanish from Key Stage 3 to A Level (or equivalent).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.

  • What happens if our flight operators/transport providers cease to trade whilst we are on tour?

    By booking your tour package with us, you are fully covered in the event that you are unable to return home should your transport provider fail to operate i.e. it goes into liquidation. As your operator it is our responsibility to ensure that alternative arrangements are made to repatriate you and your group to the UK. Rayburn Tours is a member of ABTA and bonded as such and is fully ATOL licensed.
  • What support do you have in place in the event of a crisis situation?

    In the unlikely event that your group is involved in a crisis situation during your tour, you can be assured that Rayburn Tours have a Crisis Management System in place which is fully supported by ABTA, ATOL and Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd. In 2010 our robust crisis management system was successfully implemented following the Eyjafjallajӧkull volcanic eruption in Iceland and 290 passengers were quickly and efficiently repatriated – this gives you the reassurance that support is on-hand in exceptional circumstances.
