Citizenship school trips

Society, law and politics

Changes to the National Curriculum starting in September 2014 see the subject area of Citizenship become compulsory for maintained schools at Key Stage 3 and 4. The purpose is to teach and inspire children about the United Kingdom, how it is governed, our political system, and how they as individuals can actively participate as citizens of our society. Topic areas such as the judicial system and law, politics, and finance are central to citizenship and many teachers are finding that citizenship school trips are a great way to help children understand and make sense of what can otherwise be quite a difficult subject area.

Below you will find a range of UK school trip venues as well as some overseas study tours, all of which specialise in citizenship themed educational experiences. These range from mock parliaments and trials, staged debates, to witnessing how government functions at a local and national level.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Citizenship trip for your school.
