Citizenship School Trips

Learning Objective

Society, law and politics

The National Curriculum for schools at Key Stage 3 and 4 inspires children to learn about how the United Kingdom is governed, and how to engage as a citizen in the political and democratic systems. Citizenship will teach the principals of law and justice, critical thinking, how to engage in political debate, and personal financial planning.

Ofsted's requirements for 'cultural capital' development include four key British values: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs, and for those without faith. All of which work together to show pupils 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.
