School Wartime Britain trips

There are a wealth of sites of historical importance to explore on a school trip right here within the UK and students can gain a real understanding of the impact of war on the lives of civilians, as well as how the developments in weaponry and transport affected the conflicts.

Through a variety of visits, students will deepen their knowledge of the historical context of war and be able to make real, personal connections between local, national and international history

Our trips to Kent and Liverpool can be tailored to specific exam board content, if required, or be used as a broad overview of this fascinating aspect of British history.
