Product Residential Visits

Description

We know how difficult and labour-intensive organising school trips that involve at least one night away can be - from choosing a location, calculating transport to completing your Risk Assessment.

Let the School’s Traded Services team take some of those pain-points away by taking a brief from you and we will create a bespoke price for that exciting break. Trips can be anything from curriculum led, end of primary fun-based adventure breaks to secondary school ski trips. Please note, due to Civil Aviation Authority ATOL licencing, we can only quote on UK or overseas trips where land or sea travel is included.

All we need to know is:

  • Dates of travel
  • Location
  • Duration - No. nights
  • Type of accommodation needed
  • Approx. number of pupils and adults

We have also prepared a free guide with a selection of museums, places of interest, outdoor classrooms for schools in London that cater for school groups linked to curriculum opportunities of differing key stages:
