Educational school trips
At Equity, we believe that learning outside the classroom is an essential part of education. That’s why we work hard to provide curriculum-based trips for schools, each one specifically designed to bring your teaching to life.
We’ve been providing groups with inspiring school trips since 1933. Learning has been at the heart of our company ever since. It’s something we instil into all of our tours; each one of our school trips is developed alongside the teachers we work with. From the UK to overseas, the educational needs of your group are always kept front of mind.
That’s not to say we don’t know how to add a little fun. We know that your students need to maintain their excitement for their trip away, which is why we offer plenty of opportunities for them to let their hair down too.
Below, you'll find the subjects we cover on our educational tours. With school trips suitable for Key Stage 3, GCSE, A Level groups, and equivalent, there's something to fulfil all UK curricular learning objectives.
