School Religious Studies trips

A religious studies school trip offers your students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the origins of religion and its role within a society.

In a world where religion and cultures are mixing like never before, a school trip to the country in which a particular religion originated is a fascinating and enriching experience for any religious studies group, as they’ll gain a better idea of the cultural context from which the religion originated.

You can also spend some time exploring how religious minorities have been persecuted.

Religious studies school trips in the UK

London is a large, multicultural city and home to the world’s second-largest immigrant population after New York. The city is a vibrant melting pot and so is, unsurprisingly, home to sizeable Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh communities.

This means that the UK’s capital is a fantastic choice for a religious studies trip, as there is plenty of opportunity to visit a variety of places of worship, from churches to mosques, synagogues and temples.

We can also arrange for your students to enjoy a guided walking tour on the theme of faith, martyrdom and jihad in the city, to learn more about the city’s religious life.

Religious studies school trips abroad

Studying Roman Catholicism? Visit the Vatican City in Rome to learn more about the power of the Church throughout the ages. We can even arrange for your group to attend a General Audience with the Pope, subject to schedule.

Or visit Krakow, close to the birthplace of Pope John Paul II, to discover more about the different experiences of Catholics and Jews in Poland.

Alternatively, you could choose to visit Anne Frank’s House and the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam to learn more about the devastating effects of the Holocaust on the Jewish community in the Netherlands.

For a religious studies school trip your students will never forget, why not visit India, to explore the country that gave birth to several major world religions? Or head to New York, a cultural melting pot like London, where almost every religion on earth is represented.

Why arrange a religious studies school trip?

Explore the beauty of world religions

Wherever you choose to go on your religious studies school, your students will enjoy some beautiful experiences of major world religions.

In Delhi, your students will explore some of the oldest and newest world religions, from Buddhism and Hinduism to the Bahà’í Faith. They can explore the serenity of the Lotus Temple and the Buddha Jayanti Park in Delhi, as well as some of the spectacular Islamic Mughal architecture in Agra and Jaipur.

In Rome, you’ll be able to visit the Vatican Museums, where you’ll see some of the most incredible religious art in the world. A highlight will, of course, be Michelangelo’s iconic Sistine Chapel.

In London and New York, you’ll see a different kind of beauty. Here, your students can learn about the importance of religious freedom to a peaceful, multicultural society.

You can explore how religious communities maintain their identity and traditions while living side-by-side with other communities of many different faiths. And your students will also have the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between many of the world’s major religions.

Discover the horrors of religious persecution

Your religious studies school trip could provide your students with the unforgettable opportunity to learn more about historical religious persecution and the devastation wrought on communities.

For example, visit Amsterdam or Krakow to learn more about the Jewish communities who were living there prior to the Second World War. And discover the horrific reality of the Holocaust with a visit to the hiding place of Anne Frank and her family in Amsterdam, or the purpose-built death camp of Auschwitz in Poland.

Although visits like these are emotionally very difficult for students and teachers alike, they will ensure that your students remember that these horrifying tragedies happened to real people, simply because of their religion, or being considered by the Nazis to be part of the Jewish community.

These experiences will help your students to ensure that we, as a society, continue to remember that religious hatred and persecution can never be tolerated.
