The annual School Travel Awards recognise inspiring people and the best companies, venues and attractions providing school trips. There’s big prizes for schools too.

Organised by School Travel Organiser magazine, this special initiative celebrates learning outside the classroom and raises the profile and importance of school visits. 

The 2024 campaign is officially under way as we reveal who the 2024 Awards Partners are below. Nominations are now open so you can tell us what’s best for school trips. Voting from our shortlists of finalists will begin in June.

The 2024 Awards Lunch and Ceremony will take place on Friday 29th November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, which moves the event back to its traditional time of year.

A special thank you to our 2024 Awards Partners…

Attention school providers and companies: support these important awards and enjoy the many perks and the high profile that comes with being an official Awards Partner.
