A trip to remember

Often thought of as the highlight of a child’s school experience, an active and adventurous trip creates memories that can last a lifetime, bringing out the very best in children.

Learning outside of the classroom is key for children’s development, learning how to assess risks, set personal goals and be pushed slightly out of their comfort zone. We at UKSA understand that for some children this may simply be staying away from their families for the first time and taking a leap into the unknown. We do our utmost to ensure all children are supported and feel right at home, with expert guidance close at hand, every step of the way.
