I have worked in many sectors within the travel industry, and this is by far the most rewarding. With four children of my own, I know first-hand the incredible value of school trips – they really do positively develop children in so many ways and in some cases, even change lives.
Chief Financial Officer
My favourite destination is New York. I love the hustle and bustle, the diversity, the cuisines and the opportunity to spot landmarks from some of my favourite movies!
Head of Procurement
My passion for travel started with my first role working overseas in Spain and since then I have been fortunate enough to have visited many more amazing countries across the globe, each one unique in its experience, history and culture.

Lou Della Rocca
I love supporting schools in making treasured memories for the younger generation. I’m at my happiest when travelling and being exposed to new languages, cultures and experiences.
I love inspiring curiosity in schools searching for the perfect trip to a destination I have first-hand experience in visiting. I love to learn what their travel plans are, the purpose for their trip and how this links back to the curriculum so that I can prepare an entirely tailored trip as if I were visiting myself.
Travel memories are everlasting, and I love having a job where I can make school trips useful and interesting at the same time, taking groups to places that they otherwise might not get to visit.
Giving students an opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures is something that I feel is invaluable in shaping their future. Barcelona is one of my favorite cities to visit as it has everything; culture, history, good food and the beach!
What I love about working in travel is bringing dreams to life and knowing what a great experience pupils are going to be a part of.
I love being able to provide school trips that give students the opportunity to experience different cultures and languages. When I was a student, I visited a town near Lyon for a French exchange trip. I found it really interesting living with a French family, I really enjoyed the trip and my language skills improved, as I quickly became more confident at speaking the language
What I love about working in school travel is the fact that we make the World more accessible to children, allowing them to experience different countries and cultures.
Having the opportunity to travel to new and exciting countries when younger with my family, is what shaped me into loving travelling now. I'm so grateful to be able to help create these life changing experiences for other children.
I have always had a love and passion for travel and find it rewarding to inspire young people to learn about new destinations and cultures around the world!
I always learnt more outside of the classroom than I did in a classroom setting, but as a child did not get that many opportunities. Working in school travel has given me the chance to help others like me to get the most out of their school years by travelling and learning away from the classroom.
School travel creates memorable moments which empower students by giving them the opportunity to explore different cultures and languages, increasing their confidence and curiosity. I love to help create those experiences for children!

The thing I love most about working in school travel is the personalisation of each trip, knowing we help make good memories for life for children.
I love being able to be a part of the planning behind a school trip to inspire children to embrace our world's different cultures, history and languages.
It's such a rewarding feeling when you hear that the students had a great time on their tours. Months of hard work and preparation, it makes it all worth it for the students to have a trip they'll never forget!
The best thing about working in school travel is being able to create life-time memories for the students who take part to our trips.
My favourite thing about working in school travel is being secretly, behind the scenes, able to be part of their cultural growth.
My first job was as a rep with Halsbury working in the work experience department. This job gave me the opportunity to travel with groups abroad and share my love for different cultures, as I have always loved to greet new faces and serve them with my whole heart. Being a rep made me develop my passion for organising trips, and every day I try to use that experience with my groups, hoping they have the best experience and unforgettable memories.
I love the feeling of passing on my love of different languages, cultures and experiences to future generations and the rewarding sensation that I am helping to shape their perception of the world. Travel is by far the best means of learning about people and has certainly been a defining aspect throughout my life!
The thing I love about school travel is knowing that you are responsible for creating memories for students..
Having grown up and studied abroad, I understand how incredible it is to experience different cultures and how much of an impact travel can have on someone's life. It is so rewarding knowing that I can create unforgettable experiences and bring joy to children's lives, whilst utilising my passion and furthering my love for travel and tourism.
I enjoy focussing on the finer details that make a trip run smoothly and safely and being part of a team that empowers young people to broaden their horizons.
By organising trips for school groups, you get to share your love for travel with others and inspire them to discover the world. Each trip presents unique challenges and provides students with experiences and opportunities for personal growth, through travel and exposure to different environments; its extremely rewarding.
Travelling is the best life experience ever! I love organising trips that will create indelible memories that people cherish forever.
I love being part of an organisation which creates fantastic tours offering life long memories for students of all ages. I have been fortunate to travel with some of my school groups, seeing for myself the sheer joy and wonderment - it makes the months of planning totally worthwhile.
When you visit a new place, try a new food, and get to know a different culture than you are used to, something changes in you…forever. Working for Halsbury Travel allows me to pass on these emotions to the new generation, handing down to them the gift of discovering new horizons that generate change.
I am a firm believer that travelling is one of the best forms of learning. Exposure to new cultures, new places and experiences is priceless! Being part of the process of making this possible for students is a real honour.
It was my school ski trip to France that inspired me to travel and go back to the same resort a few years later to work as a chalet rep. After many years abroad, I returned to the UK and feel lucky to work in a role that lets me create the same life changing experiences for students.
“Travel opens your heart, broadens your mind, and fills your life with stories to tell.” – Working with such amazing people at Halsbury to help create invaluable memories for the students is immensely rewarding to me.
My favourite travel memory has to be when I watched 200 young singers perform at Disneyland Paris as part of a festival that I organised. I love creating inspirational music tours which allow young people to experience other cultures through music.
I had parents that were both teachers and they both had a great ethos that learning wasn’t just for the classroom. In my role I get to continue that ethos by helping make the trips happen.
Helping to make the world accessible to young people to experience different cultures and learn about their history, is the best thing for me about working in travel.
I love working in school travel because it allows me to help make life-changing experiences for students happen! Hearing about their joy as they explore new destinations and learn about different cultures is incredibly rewarding and it's a privilege to combine my passion for travel with making a positive impact on young minds.

I love to hear from the teachers after the trip that the students had an unforgettable experience. Its a chance for them embrace new cultures and form new perspectives on the world around them.
Travel has such huge potential to broaden our understanding and expand horizons. I was talking to the deputy head of a school who told me about a pupil of his who went on a trip to New York, having never previously left his own home town, and how he came back with a sense of how much the world has to offer and the drive to reach all the opportunities available to him. It was truly transformative.
