Transition Year School Trips 

For over 20 years we’ve helped Transition Year Coordinators plan the perfect, hassle free experience for their pupils and we understand the changing needs of each group.

Focussing on the pupil experience, our destination range will allow your pupils to gain fresh cultural insights and experiences abroad. NST can help you every step of the way in organising a comprehensive itinerary that is educational yet fun and fulfilling for pupils travelling abroad during their transition year. 

Transition year trips are a unique opportunity to inspire curiosity and create stronger relationships among teenage groups beyond the four walls of their usual classroom. These trips build interpersonal skills by encouraging young people to step outside of their comfort zone, meet interesting people, try new things and understand more about the world we live in. The connections made on residential trips – whether personal relationships or cultural understanding – often last for far longer than the actual time spent away. 

Whether you’re looking to learn more about art and design in Paris, business in Berlin or theatre in New York, we have a huge selection of trips for your transition year pupils on offer that can be shaped to suit your individual needs. Get in touch today to find out how we could help you.
