The company also offers a selection of long-haul trip destinations, including Argentina, Barbados, Australia, the UAE and South Africa. Have a destination in mind you want to take your students? The team can make bespoke arrangements for your school.

When students take part in a sports tour, they will usually compete with local sports teams of a similar ability. They will then tour the city’s main sporting venues and watch a professional match.

There will also be time to explore the city.

You choose the sport, the destination, and the length of time for the tour and the GB Spots Tours team does the rest. They’ll plan an ideal itinerary for your team.

A popular tour is the Barbados cricket tour, while a New Zealand netball tour will give students the chance to play against solid opposition teams of a similar ability. Students will also spend plenty of time exploring the country’s stunning landscapes and scenery.

Did you know that Sri Lanka is the second biggest rugby playing country in Asia? On a Sri Lanka rugby tour, pupils will play against strong U16 and U18 teams, as well as having the chance to explore the natural beauty, wildlife and historical sites of this beautiful country.

Teaching resources provided

The resources provided depend on the destination of your sports tour. The details will be provided when you book.

Minimum and maximum group size

This is entirely dependent on the type of tour you choose to take. It will also depend on the availability of staff from your school to join students on the tour.

Groups of around 20 students are usually best for international tours.

Details of risk assessment

All members of the GB Sports Tours team have first-hand knowledge of the destinations on offer. They use this experience to help you undertake a detailed risk assessment before the trip.
