A school residential trip to the West Midlands is a great way for students to learn outside the classroom and develop their skills through different activities.

The West Midlands offers a great range of fun activities including visits to Warwick Castle, Conkers in the National Forest, Alton Towers theme park, Swadlincote Snowsports Centre and Twycross Zoo to name just a few.

And the best thing is, being in central England, you won’t have to spend too long on a coach to get here!

I love meeting teachers who share my passion for providing students with the opportunity to experience new things and create lifelong memories. – Gail Biggins Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Montpellier is not too big, not too small, so it’s convenient for students. It’s especially lovely to have so many pedestrianised areas. There are plenty of activities to do in the area (Nîmes is great for history and it’s great to have the beach nearby). — Headington School , October 2018
