A school trip to Yorkshire for Activities Week gives your students the opportunity to learn and develop outside the classroom.

Visits to the historic city of York for the Chocolate Story and to Hull for one of the UK’s largest aquariums allow students to gain or develop their skills and personal relationships, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.

Plus, you’ll have the chance to spend a morning on Yorkshire’s beautiful coast, perhaps at Scarborough, the original seaside resort, or in dramatic Whitby, with its ruined abbey and links to Dracula.

The trip was a success. Thanks to all those who helped it to be so. The modern hotel in particular worked well for us and the staff were exceptionally helpful; all bookings for visits etc. proceeded very smoothly, as did the transfers. — Northampton High School, February 2019
