The Halsbury Family

Halsbury is a family-run business – and we pride ourselves on our family values. We believe it’s important to offer you personalised support to help ease the process of arranging your school trip.

You'll normally speak to just two members of staff –  a Tour Adviser, who will help you to decide on the basic elements of your trip and will provide you with a tailor-made quote, and your dedicated Itinerary Coordinator, who will help you finalise the details of your trip. 

Our team is still led by our founder, former teacher Keith Sharkey. Alongside him are his wife Sue, who is also a former teacher, and their children, Stuart and Katie. 

Supporting the Sharkey family is a dynamic team of former teachers and school travel specialists. Many have more than 10 years' experience working in the school travel industry and some have even been with us since the very early days!

Meet our team!

We all believe passionately in the educational value of school trips and are committed to making the process of arranging them easier for you, to help you provide this often life-changing opportunity to more young people. 

And that’s why we offer the highest quality trips at the best possible price. We don't believe in hidden charges, so the price you're quoted is the price you'll pay.
