Bespoke School Trips to 

Battleifields - Ypres & Somme

With the events of World War One now commencing over 100 years ago, putting the events of the war into perspective for students is not always an easy task. Adaptable Travel can assist by arranging your bespoke school battlefield tours to Ypres and The Somme. We combine a range of moving visits supported by our expert guides who bring the whole area alive for your students. Also, we have developed our innovative Project Battlefields student and teacher resources to accompany visits to the historical sites on all of our battlefields school trips to Ypres and The Somme.

The impact and significance of World War 1 is the foundation of most modern history courses and our battlefields tours programme is an excellent way for pupils to experience first-hand what they are taught in the classroom by taking learning outside the classroom. A WW1 school trip can help your students meet their curriculum learning objectives. Also, there are excellent opportunities to include English Literature studies on this trip by including War Poetry of WW1, something which Adaptable Travel can assist with and look forward to helping you create a perfect school Battlefield trip.
