A level school trip ideas
Many school trips are dedicated solely to primary and secondary level education, but what about A level students? There are a vast majority of trips that would benefit A level students, while allowing them the independence to explore and have fun while learning. Whether you’re studying sciences, arts, languages, etc, there is a trip for every A level student, dedicated to your specific subject choice!
- theatre trips; perfect for drama, dance, music and English students
- day trips to the Houses of Parliament; brilliant for politics and media students
- residential nature stays; biology students can thrive in this outdoor environment
- Natural history museum; for those history lovers, enjoy a trip to the past
Also, residential trips are brilliant for A level education as they allow for students to immerse themselves in a new area, meet new people and discover their passions while learning outside of the classroom! A level education can be exhausting and so residential trips give students the chance to take a break from the stress of the classroom and enjoy their learning from afar!
