How does the award work?

To enter, teachers will need to get their class to write reviews of a school trip or educational visit they have been on recently.

The writing will explain what the children did, what they learnt, and what they enjoyed about the experience.

The teacher will then pick the best three entries from the class and send them in to School Travel Organiser, along with a short narrative of their own, which will explain the objectives of the trip and how they were achieved.

How do we pick a winner?

The entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts from the field of learning outside the classroom (LOtC).

A shortlist of the best five entries will then be drawn up and the winner will be revealed at the five-star School Travel Awards ceremony, which will take place on Thursday 9th November at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London.

Who won last year?

Last year’s My Best School Trip winner, Kirk Ella St Andrew’s Community Primary School, have put their prize money towards two four-night trips to YHA Eskdale, where pupils will get to do everything from visiting a zoo, to study conservation, to hill hiking.
