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% towards the cost of their trip when booked with SJA.

With the support of highly experienced travel consultants our trips increase your pupils’ first hand learning experiences and enrich their lives by encouraging personal development and growing independence. Our exciting residential trips are designed to kindle pupils’ knowledge as an extension of the curriculum without them even realising!

We have always loved working with SJA and have for many years. They provide support and guidance to take staff through the planning process to ensure the trip runs smoothly and after many successful trips, we look forward to continuing to work with SJA in the future
I loved working with SJA. I will definitely look you guys up on my next trip to the UK. My agent was amazing. Thank you for setting everything up
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the SJA to schools. They provide an excellent service and the children are left with wonderful lifelong memories of their school journey.
Yet another fantastic trip organised through the SJA. Our children had a wonderful time in York – experiencing many new things, learning lots and making memories to last a life time. We can’t wait until next year!
We have used the SJA for many years now because we can rely on their expertise. The level of service throughout the planning, preparation and delivery of a tour is exemplary.
Thank you for helping us organise a fantastic opportunity for our children! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and can’t wait for the next one.
A huge thank you for the amazing work in making our journey an experience of a lifetime for the children.
SJA organise our trips year on year, we always come back as they provide a first class service enabling us to focus on our learning objectives and providing enrichment experiences for our children.
SJA were very to easy to work with to organise a day trip to France. They were easy to get in contact with, provided ample information and made the whole trip run smoothly.
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.
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!
Pupil quotes “I loved it” “ Fun and fulfilling” “I want to go back again”
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!
