School Travel Awards: the people and companies behind inspiring school trips

The School Travel Awards shine a spotlight on the very best across the school travel sector. There are a total of 17 award categories that highlight  providers and venues that have really delivered when it comes to learning outside the classroom.

We've asked teachers and educational visit coordinators across the country to tell us who, where and what is best across several categories including Best Theatre Production, Best Heritage Venue and Best Adventure Experience.

Find out who all the finalists are in this year's School Travel Awards

Voting, entries and nominations have now closed for each of the 17 categories and all the finalists have been made public.

When are the winners announced?

This year’s initiative will again culminate with the School Travel Awards lunch and ceremony on Friday 16th November at the five-star Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London.

TV broadcaster and newsreader Fiona Bruce, who described the range of “truly inspiring trips” at last year’s event, will return to host the ceremony, which promises an unbeatable networking opportunity and a fantastic celebration.
