Taking pupils out of the classroom can be an exciting, engaging and thought-provoking experience - an opportunity to learn outside of the usual day-to-day environment.

First Travel Solutions provide a hassle-free method of planning these excursions. Our easy-to-access, travel-inclusive programmes will not only stimulate the imagination, but provide a high-quality learning opportunity to complement performance when back in the classroom.

Our expertise is in our planning. We work closely with our accommodation and education partners to ensure that each one of our programmes follows the objectives of the Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto, and is aligned to the concepts of the Every Child Matters programme.


Finding the right combination

By only working with long-established, recognised providers of education and outdoor activities, we can provide exciting, enjoyable and relevant programmes that closely support key stage learning.

Combining our organisational strengths and support, with those from respected partners such as the Field Studies Council and the Youth Hostel Association; we can offer all the ingredients that make a successful school trip. And our 'joined-up' approach means that staff can concentrate on the day job!

Our programme costs include all the extras – from meals and accommodation, to course content and – of course – travel. We even offer one free leader place for every 12 pupils.


It's time to make outdoor learning more accessible!
