School Trips to Spain

School trips to Spain might just offer more diversity in terms of educational opportunities than any other destination! There are numerous attractions suitable for all subjects and study areas, including art, business studies, fashion, food technology, Spanish language and culture, and many others.

Why visit Spain?

The vibrant culture

One of the wonderful things about Spain is that it is a de facto plurinational state, with a number of distinct regional cultures, including Basque, Catalan, Galician, Andalusian and Valencian. And these all contribute in their own way to the central ‘Spanish’ culture.

The best way for students to experience and understand this important element of Spanish culture is with a school trip to Spain.

For Spanish language groups, in particular, the opportunity to explore both the regional culture and the central ‘Spanish’ culture through their Spanish language skills will be an unforgettable experience.

And Spain is a fantastic choice of destination for an art school trip too. You could head to Barcelona, where your students will fall in love with Catalan Modernisme.

The spectacular cities

The worst thing about a school trip to Spain is having to decide which city to base yourselves in!

Barcelona is always popular thanks to its unique culture and cosmopolitan outlook and works really well for a number of subjects including business studies, fashion, food technology, Spanish, primary languages, and geography.

But what about Madrid, Valencia, Seville and Granada? They’re all spectacular cities in their own right and wonderful settings for Spanish school trips. 

Maybe you’re looking for a smaller city that still offers plenty of opportunities to soak up the culture? Then Salamanca, Malaga, Cantabria, El Puerto de Santa Maria or Cadiz could be perfect for you.

Beat the competition

Worried about the competition from other departments running school trips at a similar time to yours? There’s no need to when yours is a school trip to Spain, as these are always hugely popular with students, whether you’re visiting the mainland or one of the Spanish islands, like Tenerife!
