Switzerland School Group Trips

The central European country of Switzerland, dominated by Alpine peaks and glacial lakes, is a popular destination for school groups. With flights from the UK taking less than 2 hours, or a 12 hour coach journey, Switzerland is within reach for lots of UK school groups.

So what makes Switzerland a good destination for schools?

In terms of study options, the standout curriculum subject, and the one for which we see most interest, is Science and in particular, Physics. Geneva, one of Switzerland's principal cities, is the home of CERN, the European centre for nuclear research. When the centre built a particle accelerator, it received a lot of popular press and their public outreach became skilled at engaging students from all over Europe.

Switzerland is a great school trip destination for Modern Foreign Language students. A landlocked country, Swiss people speak languages including German, French, Italian and English. Another cross curricular option is physical geography. Set your students marvelling at the mountains, gazing at the glaciers, or performing some spatial regression modelling on the Baechlisboden Floodplain.

If skiing appeals, check out our dedicated Switzerland school ski trips page. Switzerland is often overlooked as a school trip destination, yet there are some fantastic resorts with ski areas suitable for beginners, the snow is often more reliable than in the other parts of the Alps, and of course the food is worth a trip alone.
