Are you struggling to get the numbers for your school geography trip? Then why not team up with another department and make the trip cross-curricular?
Several of our geography destinations work well for cross-curricular school trips. Here are just a few of our top suggestions:
Team up with the science department and visit Switzerland on your next school trip! The scientists will love the opportunity to visit CERN in Geneva, while your geographers can explore the spectacular landscape of the Swiss Alps. And all of you will enjoy sampling the famous Swiss cheese and chocolate!
The ideal destination for almost any school trip, Barcelona and the Costa Brava offer fantastic educational activities for a huge range of subjects, including languages, business studies, fashion, food technology and, of course, geography! The opportunity to get out of the classroom and learn under the Mediterranean sun will be a huge draw for pupils, and you should se your trip filling up in no time!
The geological activity around the Bay of Naples is, of course, a huge draw for geographers. But it’s also made this an exciting school trip destination for classicists too, thanks to the opportunity to visit the preserved ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The rich, fertile soil has made the area famous for its produce – and, subsequently, its cuisine, making it a great choice for food technology groups too! And the area’s rich culture and fascinating history will make it a hit with Italian language groups too.
