Transition Year


Transition Year trips abroad are a great opportunity for students to learn valuable life skills beyond the classroom, sharing special experiences with their peers and expanding their understanding of the world and cultures around them.

Whether it is walking the Camino de Santiago together, helping build schools in Kenya or practising language skills in Germany or China, Transition Year students will get to travel, work and learn together as a team.

“Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard

AT JWT Schools we have a selection of active, charity, volunteering and language focused experiences for Transition Year students so they can develop at a personal and educational level. Talk to our expert team about your travel ideas.
