School Travel Awards 2023

A special initiative

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. 

We have our 2024 finalists! Based on the nominations received, we can now reveal the finalists that have made the shortlist (well, in 15 of the 18 categories at least!). So we’re asking EVCs and teachers to vote for their winners from the 2024 shortlist before 31st July - thank you for taking part and helping to shape this year’s results.
