Worcestershire school trips

The ancient county of Worcestershire (pronounced Wustershire phonetically) is a considered by most to be a rural county. As with most other rural counties, it is no surprise to hear that agriculture dominates local industry. Hops and fruit crops such as apples are well suited to the local terroir, and while they are still produced in abundance, the local economy is no longer centred around these forms of agricultural. Perhaps the county's most famous export, and one which still enjoys worldwide acclaim, is Worcestershire Sauce.

Opportunities to learn outside the classroom

So what opporunities are there to take your class on a school trip in Worcestershire, and how does it fare as a place to study the various aspects of the national curriculum? Well, it is fantastically well provided for as it happens. The towns and villages of the county are home to lots of venues which are geared up to assist your learning outside the classroom. There are transport museums specialising in history and social development, grand stately homes which help to tell a fascinating story of regional prosperity, and of course a great choice of venues that provide residential stays for physical education, the best of which boast the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge. To give you some further inspiration and to get you started on your hunt for the perfect venue for your school trip, we are going to focus on three very different activities.

Stretching from Kidderminster in the north, down to incorporate Evesham and Malvern in the south, Worcestershire is located in the centre of the country. Historically, before politics redrew the boundaries for voting purposes, the county was a different shape and included more urban areas, which are now referred to as the "West Midlands County".
