What will students see and do?
Take your students on a school trip that they’ll never forget with Galloway’s educational tours abroad. Packed with hands-on activities and experiential learning, Galloway offers a range of inspiring day excursions and residential visits for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
Foster learning outside the classroom with Galloway’s most popular history tour, which takes students to the key points along the Western Front. Here, children will learn about the Battle of Ypres and WW1 trenches.
The War Poets trip will help pupils imagine the life of a soldier by studying famous WW1 poems. Galloway is partnered with the International Guild of Battlefield Guides, meaning all of its battlefield tours are led by qualified and experienced tour guides.
On school trips to France’s north coast, students will learn about key turning points during the Second World War, including the history of the Battle of Normandy and the use of WW2 planes. Trips to Normandy can also reach further back in time to support lessons on medieval history, focusing on the Norman Conquest.
Elsewhere, art and design students can visit Spain to view Barcelona’s architecture, or take a school trip to London to experience the best West End shows and view the famous landmarks in London, from Big Ben to Tower Bridge. Day excursions to the continent also offer students plenty of learning opportunities, including visiting Belgium’s Christmas markets or France’s Opal Coast.
