On our tours the students will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of different historic sites including battlefields, memorials, cemeteries and museums, participate in remembrance ceremonies, and record, reflect and share their own experiences.

We also offer a number of Literature of the First World War tours to schools, which are designed to support those teaching or studying English.

On both of our tour offers, teachers will get the opportunity of developing their own subject knowledge and considering new and exciting ways of engaging young people outside the classroom.

“Wow! What an amazing trip from start to finish. The organisation of the trip was impeccable with every minute accounted for with engaging & thought-provoking activities for both teacher & students alike.”
