Halsbury Turns 30!
Firstly, let us wish you a very happy new year! We’re very excited about all that 2016 has to offer, as this is the year that we celebrate our 30th anniversary!
It was way back in 1986 that our founder and Managing Director, Keith Sharkey decided to create Halsbury Travel. As a teacher himself, Keith held a passionate belief in the value of educational travel and wanted to provide more young people with the opportunity to travel with their school.
Keith created a tour operator that specialised in supporting teachers in providing their students with unforgettable educational experiences. After several years spent successfully arranging tailor-made school trips, Halsbury started to offer school ski trips. Keith himself is a passionate skier and much of his experience in school travel as a teacher was in arranging school ski trips for his own students.
The very first school ski trip that we arranged was for Trinity School in Nottingham, the very school where Keith had been Head of French. Since then, we have sent hundreds of school groups to European destinations including France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland, as well as the USA and Canada, and have formed a dynamic team of Resort Experts and Itinerary Coordinators, who all share Keith’s passions for school travel and skiing.

As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, there has never been a better time to enjoy the Halsbury experience yourself. Join us on the slopes this year to find out why we are the experts in school ski travel. For further information or advice, please contact our Resort Experts.
