Votes and nominations are now being taken for the inaugural School Travel Awards, which will recognise the best providers and practitioners in school travel.

School Travel Awards Voting

There are 17 accolades to be handed out. The first 15 will recognise suppliers, attractions and destinations that strive to set a new standard in school trip provision.

The final two awards recognise schools and individuals who go the extra mile in taking learning away from the classroom.

The first of these is the School Trip Champion Award, which has been designed to shine the spotlight on one individual, who constantly pushes the boat out to get pupils learning outside the classroom.

It’s an award that comes with a £1,000 prize, which will be given to the winner’s school, to contribute to a future school trip.

The second is the My Best School Trip Award, which comes with a £1,500 prize for the winning school to spend on an educational trip.

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 awards will culminate in a five-star ceremony and lunch at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London, on Thursday 10th November.
