RELIGIOUS EDUCATION SCHOOL TRIPS
Our Company prides itself on the high standard of its Religious Education tours, which are designed to complement the topics and themes taught on the National Curriculum. Whatever the focus of your proposed Religious Education tour, we can offer a broad and relevant excursion programme which will bring the subject to life for your pupils outside the classroom. Whether it’s a shorter tour to London or Amsterdam, or a destination further afield such as Rome or Krakow, our Religious Education tours can be tailor-made to suit your requirements and incorporate your fields of interest. Our Religious Education tours can also be combined with the History or Modern Foreign Languages departments in your school to create an interdisciplinary tour, which will appeal to a wider range of students.

Amsterdam’s historical and cultural diversity and its proximity to the United Kingdom makes it the perfect destination for a shorter Religious Education tour, especially for younger pupils. Here, groups learn about racism and the persecution of Jews during the Nazi era through a range of educational excursions including The Jewish Historical Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue, The Dutch Resistance Museum and of course, Anne Frank House. The Auschwitz Memorial in Wertheimpark and the Hollandsche Schouwburg Dutch Theatre are a stark reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust, as is Camp Vught National Memorial, a former concentration camp. Turning to Christianity, the fascinating Our Lord in the Attic Museum houses a genuine Catholic church, found in the attic of a house! Please click here to visit our Netherlands page.
