Planning Your School Trip

Why Go On School Trips?

School trips are... fun, educational, rewarding for both students and staff, part of the curriculum, challenging, character-building and engender new skills and freedom of expression.

They are also... extra work, overburdened with administration, risky, a pain to organise, thankless, an excuse for some time off, an easy way to get a 'free' trip abroad.

Depending on your point of view, of course!

Whatever your motivation for leading a trip, or whatever the trip might be, you need support and help to ensure it goes well and the intended benefits are derived by students and staff alike.
