School Tours to Spain

Although possible to travel to Spain by coach or by ferry, flying is by far the most popular mode of transport for UK students taking a school trip to Spain. Flights depart daily from most UK airports, national and regional, and are direct to all the main cities you are likely to visit. The journey time is between 2 and 3 hours depending you're your departure and destination airports. Airport transfers will be included with your trip.

So what makes Spain such an interesting place for school visits?

On this page you will find our recommendations for Spainish trips that have already taken thousands of school pupils, and that get frequent recommendations from other teachers. You will also find more useful information below about planning your school's trip to Spain.

A coach trip from the London area to Madrid will take the best part of a couple of days, while a ferry from one of the South Coast ports to either Santander or Bilbao will take around a day. A longer journey will give you more places en-route to talk about.

Your school trip organiser will arrange your accommodation and in Spain you are likely to stay in a hotel. The main cities are well prepared for tourists and there are good quality budget options for schools. If you are brave enough to organise your own trip, you may want to look at youth hostels as a real budget option.

Study options in Spain

If your students are learning the Spanish language, then a school trip to Spain is (forgive the French) a fait accompli, though there are plenty of opportunities to engage your class in further cross curricular activities, to make your trip to Spain as rewarding as possible. If Modern Foreign Languages are not the focus of your school's tour of Spain, then here are some other reasons that make Spain such a popular destination for school groups.

business in spain

Business Studies
the economic fortunes of Spains major cities is a fascinating area for any student of business. Schools can make trips to Barcelona's vibrant port on the Mediterranean coast, Madrid's finance and banking sector, or perhaps take a more detailed look at the important wine industry.


spanish art

Art & Design
Spain is the home to plenty of famous artists, though if is an art trip to Spain you are interested in, we recommend Barcelona. Home to the magnificent Sagrada Familia Cathedral, designed by Gaudi, and of course the wonderful and inspirational Picasso Museum.


spain sports

Sports
Sporting activities are another great mechanism through which school children can experience life in Spain. Playing organised sports gives the students something familiar in a foreign country and also allows them to get more involved with local Spanish people, rather than just skimming across the surface as a tourist. Check out our guide to school sports trips to Valencia


spanish language

Modern Foreign Languages
There are various ways to make the most of a modern foreign language (MFL) trip to Spain. Some trip organisers will have partnerships with local schools, and the suggested itinerary will include time for your group to experience part of a typical school day in a Spanish school. Other trips will simply visit plenty of local historic and modern attractions, encouraging students to use as much conversational Spanish as possible. However you choose to enjoy your school trip to Spain, an immersive language experience will be of great benefit to your student's understanding of the language.


barcelona

Barcelona
Capital of the Catalonia region of Spain, this is a major European city and has a huge amount to offer schools. Must see places within the city include La Rambla which is the main thoroughfare, arguably Barcelona's answer to the Champs Elysees. And the Picasso Museum. View our Barcelona school tours


madrid

Madrid
Capital of Spain and a great city for school group tours to explore. Highlights include the Plaza Mayor, the main square, and the Royal Palace (Palacio Real).
