History School Trips


History school trips will help students understand some of the events that have shaped their world, whether exploring the ruins of the Roman Empire or visiting the remains of the Berlin Wall that separated the world for nearly 30 years.

A school trip to Krakow, Berlin or the Battlefields of Northern France, will help them understand some of the most dramatic chapters in Europe’s contemporary history such as the Great War, the rise of Nazism, World War II, the Holocaust and their aftermath.

In New York, students can absorb the scale of migration from Europe to the USA at Ellis Island, where 12 million European migrants landed since its opening date in 1892 until the 1950s.

“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” Martin Luther King Jr

In Rome, once the centre of Western civilisation and cradle of the mighty Roman Empire, they will travel back in time as they tour this magnificent city, a breathing, living open air museum.
