Based on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of the UK, Education Destination arranges residential visits for thousands of school age children every year, including safe and secure accommodation, meals, transport and a wide choice of educational and experiential activities
There are many reasons why the Isle of Wight is the ideal school trip destination. Apart from being easily accessible from most of the UK and having the adventure of an overseas visit without all the hassles, the Island offers:
Our expert teachers have carefully considered all of the teaching possibilities for many of the Island's favourite visitor attractions against the National Curriculum and syllabuses for the major exam boards. They have then developed a wide range of innovating and exciting resources for students and teachers to use before, during and/or after their visit to help bring learning to life. These resources are FREE of charge to our booked groups. For example:
The possibilities are endless. and we regularly surprise ourselves at the breadth and depth of materials available.
Working with an independent CMIOSH (Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health), we have developed a Safety Management System which seeks to meet or exceed the most stringent requirements of the UK's Local Education Authorities.
This means that all our partner organisations - accommodation providers, venues and visitor attractions - have had their safety systems evaluated and documentation checked and collated regularly. When you book with Education Destination, we'll give you access to all the relevant audits, along with recent sample risk assessments, access statements (where available) and certificates such as public liability insurance and fire safety, saving you time and helping your internal approvals process. If there are any gaps, being local we can plug these for you quite quickly. And if you'd prefer (or are made) to undertake a pre-visit inspection, we can help you arrange that too.
Based in Rookley, slap bang in the middle of the Isle of Wight just outside Newport, our specialists are on hand to answer any questions or concerns that may arise during your visit. Your account manager will meet with you at least once during your stay - usually on the first or second day - to ensure everything is as it should be.
Our staff have a background in education, so fully understand your needs and requirements, no matter how unusual they may be. And a 24 hour helpline is available to visitors in case there is something that you cannot resolve yourself, or have exceptional situations that need an immediate response.
