School trips are an integral part of a student’s educational experience and often create memories that last an entire life time. However, excursions can often be extremely difficult and time-consuming to arrange successfully. With over 16 years of experience in the primary teaching sector, Fussell’s Travel Service can be relied upon to professionally organise these trips for you – we pride ourselves in delivering memorable, fun and exciting experiences for students and teachers alike to world class destinations across the UK.
Our personalised service means that we can tailor our trips to particular curricular areas. This creates an educational experience that will bring the pages of a textbook to life and allow students to understand a subject in greater depth, beyond the boundaries of a classroom.
Put down your paintbrush and feel inspired by a custom-made school trip to Manchester, home to artwork by the nationally famous artist LS Lowry. The Lowry Centre and Art Gallery is home to the world’s largest collection of artwork by this popular artist and with free tours every single day, this destination is a perfect option for an art-themed excursion. Fussell’s Travel Service offers nearby accommodation at YHA Manchester, an ideal base for exploring this major UK city and the surrounding areas further.
Alternatively, if you are planning a visit to the south of England, London offers something for everyone with world-class exhibitions in the National Gallery, Tate Gallery and Tate Modern.
A Blast From The Past
History is a subject that can be brought back to life with an effectively planned school trip. Fussell’s Travel Service organises London based school trips to the Imperial War Museum, a museum that aims to tell the stories of people’s experiences from WW1 to ongoing conflicts today. There is even the option for students to get involved in educational sessions, which include getting the chance to meet an evacuee from the Second World War and an opportunity to learn about Winston Churchill’s life legacy.
Satisfied by Science
Take a wander amongst the meteorites, minerals and animals in London’s Natural History Museum and come face to face with a 25-metre skeleton of a blue whale suspended into the air – you are bound to have a whale of a time! The museum also offers student workshops where children can investigate the ancient specimens first hand. Sessions for educational group visits are also offered at The Science Museum in London and may even inspire your class to become the next generation of scientists.
Fussell’s Travel Service offers London based accommodation to satisfy everyone through multiple locational options. These include the most popular choice YHA Thameside, along with YHA St. Pauls and YHA Lee Valley. YHA St. Pauls is situated on the doorstep of the world-famous cathedral itself and is just minutes away from the West End – a perfect location for a drama specific excursion.
