A school trip to the West Midlands for Activities Week 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!
