The School Journey Association, affectionately known as ‘The SJA’ was founded in 1911. As the UK’s pioneer organisation offering school journeys, we provide inclusive educational tours for all ages of pupils and size of school groups for both day trips and residential breaks both abroad and in the UK.
We have a proven successful history of providing enriching learning experiences to all children, including those with learning or physical disabilities. We believe that every single child should be able to participate and gain the benefits from an educational school trip and as a registered charity, we can provide FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE to children from disadvantaged families.
CREATING EXPERIENCES. ENHANCING LEARNING OBJECTIVES
When children are offered the opportunity of matching the curriculum to the real world through first hand learning experiences, it enriches their lives, encourages personal development and helps them achieve a greater sense of independence. With over a century of experience which we can share with our participating schools, we have repeatedly seen that all children benefit significantly by extending their learning environment beyond the classroom.
REPUTABLE. TRUSTED. EXPERIENCED.
We have built a strong reputation with many schools using our services time after time based on the standard of service we offer and our unique educational visits. SJA is run by volunteer teachers and head teachers and with our team of experienced Tour Consultants, we can ensure exciting journeys across Europe and the UK, each designed to interest all students and to extend the curriculum beyond the classroom.
SUPPORTIVE. HELPFUL. FAIR.
Our highly trained Tour Consultants can support group leaders and trip organisers throughout every step of organising your school group travel experience. All schools who book educational trips with us will be sent a comprehensive informative group leader’s pack containing all the essential information and resources for successful school group travel. Also, one night’s accommodation can be arranged free of charge for the group leader to visit the destination in advance of the trip, to help you with your risk assessment before the trip takes place.
You can explore our website to get a feel for our existing tour packages to a variety of destinations in Europe and also to view any Special Deals we are offering or Contact Us to talk about putting together a tailor-made school trip.
Our years of experience mean that you can be sure you and your class are safe in expert hands – Terence Lee
