School trips in Liverpool & Merseyside

If you are planning a school trip, Liverpool and Merseyside certainly have everything to offer. With its unique culture consisting of its first-class musical heritage, sporting achievements, great history and distinct charm, Liverpool is a place like no other.

Liverpool is a city with an abundance of history. Liverpool has the largest collection of galleries and museums outside London, which means that it is the perfect place to choose for an educational school trip. Its mercantile architecture situated on its striking waterfront is a concrete reminder of its past. The famous Albert Docks dating back to 1839 cannot be missed, as it is a significant landmark in British history as it reminds us that Liverpool was once an important global port. Consequently, it is a fantastic place for children to learn visually about British history as the children can see the largest group of Grade 1 listed buildings in the whole of the United Kingdom. You can clearly see why Liverpool achieved 3rd place in the Rough Guides' top worldwide cities to visit in 2014.

Liverpool is also an extremely easy destination to reach so therefore travelling there is not a problem. It is well-linked with the UK motorway network, from the M6 you merely need to follow the M62, M56 or M58.

We think drama is a fantastic way to learn about history.

Altru Drama Days always create a real buzz in school - as everyone is learning and having fun including teaching staff. We use a wide range of drama techniques to engage all children in the Viking topic and ensure our sessions are completely inclusive so that all children can learn, develop and grow.
