We all know the obvious benefits of learning a language abroad, whether it is for general immersion in the language or targeted revision for specific exams such as GCSE or A Level. Call us today for details of our language trips to France and Spain.
We can help. As a Charity, our aim is to support disadvantaged children and families who face difficulty in paying for residential visits for their children and subject to criteria we can provide grants of up to 50% of their trip.
I began organising this trip with SJA ten years ago and the trip has continued to evolve, providing a very well-organised and varied itinerary giving the children so many exciting new opportunities and memories to last a lifetime.
Here’s to 2020!
Thank you Annie and SJA for organising a fun-filled week for us in Bournemouth. We will definitely be using SJA again for future residential trips!

An excellent full package provided by school journey – from provisional booking right through to end of visit. Would highly recommend
Another great school journey to Bournemouth! This is our 4th year going and we always have a wonderful time. Thanks SJA for all your work organising it for us!
SJA take the worry and some of the hard work out of taking a group of children away. When many schools are wondering whether it is worth all the hassle, SJA make things a lot easier.
We have been using the SJA for many years. Trips are always extremely well organised and tailored to suit our specific needs. Our children had a fantastic time in the Lake district this year. It is wonderful to see them develop independence and confidence whilst making memories that will last a life time. The financial assistance offered by the SJA opens up this trip to many children who would otherwise never have such a valuable experience. Thank you – we can’t wait for next year!
If you want value for money, peace of mind, a friendly and professional service and an journey that your Year 6’s will remember fondly, then book with SJA.
I would recommend SJA to any school for educational trips. It took a lot of the stress away from the organisation and coordination of events. The companies SJA use are of a high standard and allow you to feel confident in their capabilities. Finally, the extra support for the pupil premium students helped to make our trip go ahead. Thank you for enriching our students lives SJA.
The SJA has never let us down.
Once again SJA planned and delivered a fantastic tour to Bayeux for our 60 eleven year olds. The planning process was clear and stress-free, which allowed the trip to run smoothly from start to finish. The tour was an unforgettable experience for the children, providing them with valuable learning opportunities but also encouraging a sense of independence, adventure and confidence for the future. Thank you again, SJA!
I would thoroughly recommend planning a school trip with SJA. Not only to provide excellent value for money and supportive service in the planning stages, they also support you throughout the process communicating changes to accommodation, advising on alternative possibilities and being flexible to last minute changes.
We were very pleased with the services provided by the coach, hotel and SJA Tours.We had another brilliant trip to IOW this year.
Thank you SJA Tours!
Sunitha was extremely organised and has been really helpful. She has communicated with the school frequently and always promptly replies to emails and questions.
The children had an excellent time on the Isle of Wight. One child said it was the second time they had been on a beach and they were loving it. I asked when the first time had been and they said that morning!
We love our trips through the SJA, they are well priced, accessible for all of our children, and the support throughout the reservation period to departure is fantastic!
We are back in Nairobi and I would like to sincerely thank you for the amazing Italian trip! Everything was well organised and very well thought out, catering very well for the children we had. I thank you for all the work you put in to make this trip a success. We are pleased to recommend SJA to other schools.
The children had a fantastic time on the Isle of Wight and the SJA were of great support in organising the trip.
Once again, we had a fantastic school trip to Bayeux, Normandy. It was such an enriching and exciting experience for all our children. The trip was planned and organised so carefully with the help of Camilla from SJA. After working with SJA for many years they always provide excellent service. Thanks for another great tour SJA!
The School Journey Association organised every detail from beginning to end so we didn’t have to worry!
