School History trips

Want to bring history to life for your students and gain inspiration for your history lessons? Why not arrange a school history trip abroad?

Your history school trip will be tailor made to meet your specific requirements and learning objectives. So, whether you want your students to better understand conditions in the trenches, or you want them to learn more about medical advancements during WW1, our WW1 battlefields can be tailored to suit you.

Perhaps your students are learning about the Nazis and the Holocaust? In Berlin they can find out more about the rise of the Nazis and how Hitler, once seen as a fanatic, eventually rose to become dictator. You could extend your trip with a visit to Krakow, so that your students gain a deeper understanding of the scale and horror of the Holocaust, with a visit to Auschwitz.

We also offer trips to France and Russia, where your students can find out more about the revolutions there that not only transformed those countries, but also had a huge effect on global politics.

Discover more about school History trips

Ofsted have advised that 'The most effective departments in secondary schools used enrichment activities regularly to support students’ learning.’  And trips to Berlin and to the WW1 battlefields were named as ‘key features’".

On a history school trip to the WW1 battlefields, your group will experience the living conditions in the trenches, as well as the destructive power, waste and futility of war, by following the events of the 1916 Battle of the Somme and the Third Battle of Ypres.

In Berlin, Munich and Krakow, your students will have the chance to reflect on visits to Nazi concentration camps and learn more about the rise of National Socialism and the eventual fall of Hitler. And in Berlin and Moscow, your students will discover how the ideological warfare of the Cold War affected the local population.

We can also arrange history school trips focusing on the French Revolution, Russian Revolution and Vietnam War, as well as trips looking at history of warfare and medicine through time.
