School trips are back!

Going offsite with students is so beneficial... from expanding their worldviews to enhancing their classroom learning, there’s really no reason to stay put now that we can finally get out and about. 

Offsite engineering experiences

From The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, to the London Transport Museum or Northern Aspirations site visit in Newcastle and Headstart Cymru across Wales... get your students learning about engineering careers in real life!

We’ve got a couple of handy features on the site to make your life easier when planning trips. Log in or enter your school's name in the ‘find an experience’ search box to find experiences near you, and you’ll see that offsite activities will automatically list the exact distance from your school. You can also sort experiences by distance, or select the map view to reveal all our offsite listings around the UK. 

Now’s really the time to get planning educational (and fun!) trips for the months ahead. We’ve got you covered.
