Subject Experts for Religious Studies groups 

Our accompanied study tours are hugely popular with religious studies groups, with thousands of students taking a trip each year. 

With a range of Subject Experts in many of our destinations, we’ll select a specialist from our team to meet your exact visit requirements and provide you with both local knowledge and educational support.

Benefits of NST study tours 

All of our Subject Experts have incomparable knowledge of their subject area and an ability to communicate their learning in a way that will enlighten and stimulate your students. 

Whilst on tour, your subject expert will be with you to provide local knowledge and educational support – helping you to get the most from your time outside of the classroom. 

A strong teaching background

All of our Subject Experts are ex-teachers with specific Religious Studies expertise. As former teachers they understand the demands and requirements of organising educational visits. Their educational background and detailed knowledge of the current curriculum means they’ll tailor the delivery of information to your exact requirements, homing in on key study themes whilst on your tour to help put your students’ learning into context. 

Helping you to prepare your ideal Religious Studies trip itinerary 

Your RS Subject Expert will contact you before your school trip to discuss your learning objectives. They will then advise on the appropriate visits to build an itinerary that matches your specified objectives and enables your group to get the most out of every day. 

More time for one-to-one teaching 

With an NST Religious Studies Subject Expert leading the group you gain the opportunity to provide individual tuition and enjoy the visits with your students. 

First evening talk 

Your RS Subject Expert will provide an informal discussion on your first evening, setting the scene for the next few days. Helping students focus on the days to come and covering many general questions up front, this talk will allow more time for specific questions at each site. 

Excellent local knowledge 

Our Subject Experts for RS groups can offer advice on practicalities such as public transport, food stops and evening leisure activities and are able to adapt tours due to changing weather conditions or to minimise queuing.
