School Travel Awards

Teachers and educational visit coordinators can now give their verdict about those who go the extra mile to create the best experiences for both children and staff. 

Launching this year’s initiative, the School Travel Awards shine a spotlight on the very best across the school travel sector. We want you to share your experiences of school trips and learning outside the classroom and highlight the providers and venues that have delivered.  

There are a total of 17 award categories, here's our handy guide to each category. You can now vote in 15 of them, whether it’s telling us the Best Venue for English Learning, Best Residential Experience or the Best Sporting Venue. 

Vote in the School Travel Awards

Who can vote?

Anyone involved in organising school trips and learning outside the classroom experiences, from teachers and educational visit coordinators, but they must work for or represent a school. We do not accept votes from companies or providers.

Request an entry pack for the 'My Best School Trip' Award 2018

Schools are encouraged to enter the 'My Best School Trip' Award with £1,500 up for grabs to spend on a school trip. Entries include pupil reviews and a narrative from the teacher explaining its objectives and what was achieved. Entries are shortlisted with the finalists judged by a panel of experts. 

Nominate your School Trip Champion

Do you know somebody (a teacher, educational visit coordinator or trip organiser) who fully embraces the concept of learning outside the classroom, delivering outstanding experiences for children? This is the award to recognise their dedication and commitment. The School Trip Champion will receive £1,500 which will be given to the school that he / she works for, to contribute to a school trip. 

When are the winners announced?

This year’s initiative will again culminate in a five-star ceremony and lunch at the 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.

The School Travel Awards, organised by School Travel Organiser magazine, recognise how important it is to reward those in the education sector, especially those who go the extra mile to provide exciting and educational trips for Primary and Secondary schools.
