Uncover the events of WWI

Our exceptionally knowledgeable WWI experts can accompany your students from arrival to departure while exploring Ypres and Somme. Providing a truly enhanced learning experience, our experts will guide your pupils around the region’s key sites, while offering fascinating information relevant to their studies.

Croonaert Wood in Ypres offers students an unparalleled insight into what life was like for soldiers during WWI. Pupils can make their way through the re-dug trench system, using the information panels to discover what life would have been like on the front line.

The 1916 Somme Museum is also a must for school day trips to the WWI battlefields. Following soldiers into the trenches of the 1916 offensive, students can experience the harsh daily life of the troops and develop their understanding of the conflict.

Explore London’s world-famous sites

A school day trip to London is a great way to build your students’ confidence and enhance their learning outside of the classroom. We can provide day trips to London for a vast number of subjects, from drama and performing arts to history and science.

Some of our favourite school day trip ideas include taking your students to see a fantastic West End performance, exploring the British Museum and delving into the thrilling London Dungeon. Our subject specialists will work with you to plan an exciting itinerary that matches your study topics.

Discover the Opal Coast’s local treasures

A day trip to the Opal Coast is a great opportunity for students to experience French culture in a short period of time. Top visits include Boulogne, a bustling port town which is ideal for sightseeing and shopping, as well as giving students the opportunity to practise their French.

Dive into Lille’s Christmas market

A brilliant experience for students over the festive period, pupils can explore Lille’s thriving Christmas markets while refining their linguistic skills. Place Rihour hosts over 80 chalet stalls, as well as a funfair and Father Christmas. Christmas Markets are a great opportunity for students to explore and learn in surroundings that interest and engage them whilst providing fun and learning. Not least, an educational visit to any of the Markets means students can enjoy some early Christmas shopping too!
