What our teachers had to say about this destination
The weather was very good. All places visited were interesting. All went as planned. I must say thank you for the support. I will be looking at repeating the trip next year.
Go! It is a fantastic trip, Amsterdam and the surrounding area has a lot to offer.
The coach company and the driver they provided were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. The excursions that we went on were educational and fun for the pupils but left little unsupervised time, which was perfect for our targeted year group. The pupils found the ferry a different experience and really broadened their horizons.
ESA is great for Y12 AS Physics students and the best Y11s, NEMO is well suited to Y11s and younger, but does not provide much challenge for 12s & 13s. The Blue Boat company were good, they kept to time and all our people enjoyed the canal trip. Overall the trip was a success, all of our students got good things from it. The hotel was clean, comfortable, better than expected.
