A school trip to Yorkshire 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.

What I love about working in school travel is the fact that we make the World more accessible to children, allowing them to experience different countries and cultures. – Gayle Flude Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

The itinerary was great. Berlin is a fantastic city to visit with so much to see. Our hotel was a great base to stay in as well. It was in a central location and the rooms were very nice. — Loughborough High School , December 2018
