Looking for a school preseason sports tour in central England for a variety of sports including football, netball and hockey? Our school multisport tour to Lilleshall is ideal. You’ll stay onsite and have access to the fantastic facilities at Lilleshall National Sport Centre.

Lilleshall National Sport Centre is one of the most prestigious sporting centres in the country. England’s World Cup winning side trained here in 1966. And most Premiership football academies have built up their youth programmes based on the famous school that was established here and helped to forge future stars including Jermain Defoe and Michael Owen.

The facilities here are still world-class, from the pitches, courts and gym to the dedicated rehabilitation centre. And many elite athletes still train here. So if you’re looking for a school preseason tour to inspire your students ahead of the new season, Lilleshall could be the perfect fit!

Don't take our word for it …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College, September 2023
