School Trip Champion

School children with a teacher

Nominations for this award are now closed. The finalists will be announced in September. 

This award recognises an individual who goes the extra mile to organise exciting and educational trips and champion learning outside the classroom. Plus, it comes with a prize of £1,500 to spend on a future school trip. 

Last year’s winner was Jacqui Hargreaves, head of Design & Technology and Food Science, at Vandyke Upper School in Leighton Buzzard, honoured for her dedication and passion for school trips and learning outside the classroom. 

What happens next?

Readers have been nominating their candidates for the award - the deadline has now passed. 

A shortlist of candidates will now be drawn up by the team at School Travel Organiser magazine and the finalists announced in September through the magazines, website and social media platforms.

Readers will then be able to vote for their winner from the shortlist.

The School Trip Champion 2018/19 will then be announced at the five-star School Travel Awards luncheon and ceremony at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London on Friday 16th November.
