Primary school trips & tours

Our destinations have been chosen with primary school groups in mind. Our safe, secure accommodation options and range of engaging visits provide an ideal introduction to the world outside the classroom. We go the extra mile to offer residential tours which enable children to understand how they fit into the world around them and embed the educational values from your tour within your learning environment in school.

Our primary school trips programme covers the UK and Europe. Our trips which can be tailor-made to your exact needs and subject themes curriculum your pupils are studying.  Explore key topics in London including WWII & the Battle of Britain, Crime & Punishment in Britain and The Tudors. 

Or take your pupils on an NST primary school trip educational tour to the Continent, inspire them with brand new surroundings and challenge them with fun-filled educational visits, and you’ll develop them both as individuals and as part of a team! 

We offer unique and exclusive educational materials for you to use on your tour, and provide you with resources for pre- and post-tour tasks too.
