School Activities Week Trip to Yorkshire

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.

Kirk Hallam Academy, June 2019

A fabulous trip, the organisers couldn't do enough for us. The students loved it and the itinerary planned was so varied that the students were amazed by the amount of experiences that they received in such a short amount of time.
