Nothing Quite Like an SJA Trip!

LOOKING FOR AN AMAZING SCHOOL TRIP?  The School Journey Association provides inspiring educational tours designed to bring subjects to life, extend students’ learning and develop their appreciation of local and international cultures outside the classroom. We’ve been around for over 100 years and have a wealth of experience, knowledge and contacts, all to guarantee you a trip of a lifetime. As a not-for-profit organisation, SJA offers great value for money, as well as a friendly, personalised service, with lots of tips and advice.

SJA are ABTA and ATOL members so your group will be safe knowing that you will be fully protected so you can #travelwithconfidence.




POSITIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES? The SJA is run by teachers and ex-teachers, who volunteer their time, all with vast experience of school travel. All our trips increase your students 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!

NEED A TAILOR-MADE SCHOOL JOURNEY? Any destination is possible with the SJA. If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, we can create a unique tailor-made itinerary for your educational needs that can focus on a multitude of diverse interests for all ages, created to your exact specifications. Our team of experienced Tour Consultants will be able to source and organise exactly what you need.

ACTIVITY CENTRES? We offer an exciting range of activity trips guaranteed to ensure your pupils can enjoy themselves whilst learning new skills. Excursions and activities are a key part of all our action-packed tours to keep your pupils stimulated, active and amused.

LANGUAGE LEARNING? 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 schools in France and Spain.

CHILDREN IN NEED OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE? 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.

LET US HELP! Contact our friendly professional team or call us on 020 8675 6636. There is simply nothing quite like an SJA Trip!

Thank you very much indeed for the positive outcome of the Board's deliberations regarding our application for funding towards the cost of the additional adult required to attend our Year 6's visit to Bournemouth this year. Our student thoroughly enjoyed the week and benefited enormously from the change of environment and the absence of usual 'triggers'. It was quite striking to see such a significant change in demeanour and behaviour - for the better - during the week and to realise that it is sometimes the situation a child is in (and not necessarily their condition) that can have such an adverse impact on a child. thank you once again for this funding; it is very much appreciated, as is your already generous funding of the discounts for our FSM children.
