What happens next?

You’ll be sent an Entry Pack by the team at School Travel Organiser Magazine which will explain what you need to do. 

The entries need to be submitted no later than Friday 12th July, 2019, but the earlier the better. 

They will then be reviewed by a panel of experts from the field of learning outside the classroom at a judging day in London. 

A shortlist is drawn up and the winner will be revealed at the five-star School Travel Awards ceremony, which will take place on Friday 15th November at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London. 

“Personally, I feel privileged to have been part of the whole process and part of the School Travel Awards as a school”. 

Jonathan Whitwell, deputy headteacher, Moorside Primary School, Lancaster

Last year’s winner

The winner of last year’s ‘My Best School Trip’ Award was Moorside Primary School from Lancaster for their Year 1 residential to FSC Malham Tarn. They’ve used the money to take 90 Year 3 students caving. 

Deputy headteacher Jonathan Whitwell, who collected the prize, said winning the award has “raised the profile of the school with all stakeholders - and most importantly - the children, who are rightly proud of their school”.
