UK School Trips
lets both teachers and parents plan school trips, whether they are looking for a fun-filled day out or an educational visit that ties in with the school curriculum. At UK School Trips
, you will find all the information required to plan an outing from start to finish.
This useful site displays a huge number of venues and companies offering days out across England, Scotland and Wales. Search for a venue by selecting various criteria from the dropdown menus and you will soon find a number of suitable options in your area or further afield, if chosen.
UK School Trips also lists suitable accommodation for schools and groups of children.
Designed as a one-stop shop, UK School Trips has carried out extensive research with schools, nursery managers, special needs schools and parents to ensure that the services they offer make planning a trip as easy and time efficient as possible.
ASSESS THE OPTIONS
In a couple of clicks, you can be assessing your options either by using the overview of venues available or by choosing a link to a more detailed page giving you in depth information on a visit, as well as a link to the company concerned. All venues listed give information on suitability and facilities for the disabled.
Teachers can download relevant paperwork for trips either in PDF format or print as a document. Pages can also be emailed direct to colleagues. You can access project ideas and read up-to-date information on health and safety, found in Education & News.
SPECIAL OFFERS AND EVENTS
The site also runs a section for Special Offers and Events, which is always worth checking. Register for newsletters and you will automatically be entered into the quarterly school trip prize draw.
Although primarily used by teachers, lecturers, youth leaders and childminders, the service offered by UK School Trips is equally useful to parents planning family days out.
