We had an absolutely fantastic trip - all the pupils loved it! We saw so much in the 3 days we were there, and Halsbury made the whole process much easier to manage. It was my first time planning a trip but with their support everything ran smoothly. I would definitely go back and am already thinking about next year's trip.— St. Wilfrid's RC College
