Overseas History school trips
History is one of those subjects that can really inspire some students but leave others feeling under whelmed. A great way to boost engagement in your chosen study topics is to take students on an overseas history trip. These types of trips allow students to see the places that they are reading and being taught about, making the subject more meaningful and allowing them to put historical events in context.
The tour companies that we work with all have tonnes of experience when it comes to organising school history trips. They know that every school will have its own unique objectives for the trip and that is why they will work with you to design the perfect history tour for your students. Whether you plan a teacher led history tour or wish to make use of guides with specialist subject knowledge to support your teaching, the trips below can meet your requirements.
