New approach to school trips

New Year, New Approach to School Trips?

Skip to Content

If you’re struggling to get things organised, you might need a new approach to school trips. Luckily for you, WorldStrides can deliver!

We have decades of experience sending students around the globe to explore new cultures and environments (as well as boost their grades a bit).

Here’s a quick summary of how our new approach to school trips could help you prepare for next time.

Why do you need a new approach to school trips?

We don’t have to tell you that teachers have a massive workload. But between lesson planning, marking books and conducting assessments, there’s hardly any time to teach, let alone plan a school trip.

This is a shame, as school trips have many benefits for students including:

  • Encouraging confidence and independence
  • Displaying evidence of their learning in action
  • Improving academic performance
  • Giving students a sense of perspective and helping them grow

Sounds like too good an opportunity to miss, right? So that’s why it’s time to consider a new approach to school trips. It should be less time-consuming, more reliable and should fit around your existing responsibilities. Now, if only we knew of an approach like that…

The WorldStrides approach

At WorldStrides, our mission is to provide top-notch educational travel experiences that can really make a difference for students.

So, what do we do? We work with you to create school trips to remember! 10,000 teachers lead trips with us each year, so we really know what we’re doing.

We’ll guide you through the process step-by-step and make sure nothing gets missed. We’ll take care of all the form filling, organisational admin and preparation for the trip. We’ll even help you come up with an itinerary!

We can also help with promotion and fundraising for your school trip – something you may not have thought about!

Many teachers have to cancel trips abroad because there’s not enough interest/cash in the pot. But, by using bespoke promotional materials (posters, PowerPoints, videos etc) and innovative fundraising ideas, we can help you make sure your trip gets off to a flying start.

One of our representatives can also attend your information evenings to ease any concerns parents, teachers or students may have. Hopefully, that will take the pressure off!

Safety is our top priority

We want you and your students to enjoy your trip and relax, without worrying about health and safety.

That’s why we only work with LOtC and STF certified suppliers and provide ABTA or ATOL protection on all of our trips.

For the entire time you’re away, you’ll have a team dedicated to your trip. It will work behind the scenes to ensure you and your students have an excellent travel experience. This also means you can try lots of interesting activities – see here for some inspiration!

If something does go wrong on your trip, we have representatives at most of our trip destinations who are ready and able to get your adventure back on track. Hooray!

So, are you considering taking this new approach to school trips? Thousands of happy students and teachers suggest you should!
