New English Lit Tours

Brand new for 2017 – an exclusive offer to participate in a free English Literature battlefields tour.

An English teacher and two students from each participating secondary school will travel with colleagues and peers from other schools across England on a four day tour of key locations associated with the poetry, novels and plays of the First World War.

The inaugural tour departs on Friday 27th October 2017 and returns on Monday 30th October. Further departures are scheduled for Spring 2018. The group will stay for three nights in good quality school hotel accommodation on the outskirts of Ypres in Belgium.

All state funded secondary schools who have not previously taken part on our FREE programme are eligible to travel. This very special tour is likely to be in high demand, so early registration is strongly advised.

More details about the tour and how to book can be found below.
