Ensuring Health and Safety on School Trips

School trips abroad can be some of the most special and memorable experiences of our education. However, no matter how much fun is being had, accidents can always happen from trips and slips to allergic reactions to sunburn. That's why health and safety on school trips is so important. Not as a barrier to fun, but as a means to ensure the right kind of memories for both students and teachers. European Study Tours is fully committed to providing the highest possible safety standards for all our customers. We are here to help you get your trip up and running and provide you with peace of mind giving you time to focus on your students' learning.

By travelling with European Study Tours, you’ll also have the reassurance from the School Travel Forum, the leading school tour operator who promote good practice and safety in school travel.
