Take a journey through time to learn about the historical periods that have shaped society as we know it today. Our range of history school trips combines elements of government and politics too, giving your students a rounded overview of how political systems work.
History, Government and Politics intertwine as subjects, allowing students to explore the symbolism and history that has helped define and shape the political systems seen around the world today. Students can explore the great moments in history from slavery and the US Civil Rights through to the World Wars and the Cold War in Eastern Europe.
Why history school trips are important?
Each destination and attraction is carefully chosen to maximise the educational benefits for students. We believe history, government and politics studies should provide students with cultural and societal perspectives that serve. Combining classroom learning and educational theory with practical work and visits to synonymous sites of war and conflict enhances the understanding of students in their development.
Students can explore various historical periods and symbolic sites such as the World War II Battlefields in Normandy and the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps in Krakow. Our dedicated tour consultants will work alongside you to craft an itinerary that creates a strong foundational basis for understanding complex historical and political concepts.
