The annual School Travel Awards recognise inspiring people and the very best companies, venues and attractions providing school trips. And 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 trips for children.

See the shortlist below and join us on Wednesday 25th May at the five-star Royal Lancaster Hotel, London as we reveal the winners at the 2022 Awards Lunch and Ceremony.
