You really don’t have to go far for a school trip that will leave your students feeling inspired. School trips to the UK offer fantastic opportunities to learn outside the classroom for a number of subjects, including history, art, geography, science, performing arts or even Activities Week.
Why visit the UK?
Unrivalled history and culture
London is one of the most visited cities in the world and that’s because the UK has such a fascinating history and such a rich culture – those of us who live here often forget how lucky we are in this regard! And so, if you’re thinking about a history school trip, or an art school trip, staying in the UK can be a great option.
History groups can head to Kenilworth Castle to learn about the Tudors, or York and Ripon to learn more about the history of crime and punishment. Or head to one of the big cities, such as London, Liverpool and Manchester to find out what life was like on the home front during WW2.
Planning an art school trip? You could head to Glasgow to visit some of the UK’s premier art museums. In Cornwall, you could visit artists’ studios and in Bristol enjoy a street art walking tour. And in Manchester, your students can find out how industrial cityscapes have influenced local artists.
Have you been asked to arrange an Activities Week school trip that will offer your students opportunities to enjoy activities or experiences that wouldn’t be provided in a normal school week or on a normal school trip?
You can choose from a great variety of destinations, including Yorkshire, the Peak District, Cornwall, the Lake District and the West Midlands. And you can choose from an incredible variety of activities and experiences, from snowsports, water sports and adventure sports to shelter building, visiting a theme park or exploring a medieval castle.
Here in the UK, we’re incredibly lucky to have some spectacular scenery right on our doorstep, with plenty of choices for exciting destinations for geography school trips.
Explore coastal landscapes and sustainability on a geography school trip to Cornwall. Explore the vast moorland and deep dales of the North York Moors. Or head to the Yorkshire Dales, to see the effects of hydrology on the landscape there.
