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. 

Thank you to everyone who made nominations during Round 1. The nomination form has closed and the shortlisted finalists will be confirmed soon, after which you will be invited to vote for the winners in Round 2.

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.
