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 2022 winners below that were announced on 25th May at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London during this year’s Lunch and Ceremony.
