School Trips Abroad

School trips abroad often rank as some of our favourite memories of our school days. The experience of the subject coming to life in the 'real world' is one that tends to stay with students and can inspire a passion for the subject or even sow the seeds of a future career.

What are the benefits of school trips abroad for children?

We’ve already seen how a school trip abroad can extend your students’ learning and help bring subjects and topics to life for them. But there are many more fantastic benefits of overseas school trips.

Including:

  • Developing students’ confidence and interpersonal skills
  • Higher engagement and better motivation in the classroom
  • Help your students become better global citizens
  • Raise the profile of your department
  • Boost your own CV

On your school trip abroad, your students will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of different people. This is fantastic practice for when they leave school and meet a variety of people at university or in the workplace. Having the opportunity to develop these skills in a supported environment at an early age will stand them in good stead.

And, of course, a school trip abroad is an excellent opportunity to expand your students’ horizons, helping them to become better global citizens.

Many students may have had limited opportunities to travel and experience different cultures, but as globalisation continues, it’s only going to become more important that they are able to appreciate other cultures and value other customs.

Our role as teachers is to prepare students for their adult lives and part of that is ensuring that they are mature world citizens and a school trip abroad is just one great tool to help us achieve this.

And don’t forget, while the primary motivation for running a school trip abroad is reinforcing students’ learning, a successful, exciting school trip abroad can really help raise the profile of your department and looks fantastic on your CV!
