School Political History & Civil Rights trips

Studying the political history of Ireland or Germany? Or focusing on the Civil Rights Movement in America? Our political history and civil rights school trips will help your students gain a deeper understanding of the social and historical context.

Belfast is, of course, the perfect place to learn more about the Ireland’s complex political history, particularly with regards to the Troubles and the Peace Process.

While a school trip to Berlin offers the opportunity to study how and why the political landscape changed so dramatically in Germany between the start of WW1 and the end of WW2.

And, of course, a school trip to the USA is by far the best way to bring the Civil Rights Movement to life for your students. In New York you can find out more about the historic importance of immigration to the USA and in Washington D.C. you can learn more about the movement in the context of the wider political history of the country. While in Atlanta and Alabama you can find out more about some of the icons of the movement, such as Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
