We arrange accommodation in good standard hotels, that are experienced in and enjoy welcoming school groups. We use many of them on a regular basis, and all properties are audited to ensure they meet the necessary health and safety standards.

We will provide you with a precise breakdown of the rooms available for your group, to enable you allocate students to their rooms prior to departure.

If you would prefer to stay in a hostel, then we are able to arrange this at some destinations – simply let us know and we can then make the booking at your request.

Evening activities
After a day's learning and discussion, everyone will benefit from a relaxing evening. We can help you put together an evening programme that includes simple activities, such as quizzes and games, or for the more adventurous, bowling or eating out at a local restaurant.
