One criticism often levelled at school trips are that they’re expensive. And for non-academic subjects, such as sport and ski, it can sometimes be a bit of a battle to convince parents of the benefits of a school sports tour.

This could even mean that some students who may not otherwise have been able to attend, may be able to.
