A school trip to the Peak District gives your students the opportunity to learn and develop their personal and social skills outside the classroom.

The Peak District National Park with its stunning landscapes and outdoor experiences is the perfect destination for students to gain or develop their skills through different activities, including visits to the gardens at Chatsworth and the caverns and views of the Heights of Abraham.

Your students will also have the opportunity to visit the Peak District towns of Bakewell and Matlock Bath. Both have been tourist attractions for centuries and ooze traditional charm. And while you’re in the area, make sure you try the delicious local delicacy – Bakewell pudding!
