Everyone's boarded, the luggage is loaded up and the coach departs school for the journey to Southampton
Trip Diaries are distributed so that everyone has something to keep them quiet
If they arrive a little early, the students will spend some time in Mayflower Park adjacent to the ferry terminal where there's play equipment, ice cream vans and great views of the container port and cruise terminal.
Toilet stops will be taken as necessary
After a timely arrival at Southampton it's time to get off the coach and head upstairs to the open deck or the passenger lounge for a good look around. For many students, this will be their first time at sea
It's a 55 minute crossing to East Cowes on the Isle of Wight, across waters which are generally quite sheltered
Up Close and Personal
Get up close and personal with the world-famous Needles! This short boat ride includes a detailed live commentary, which can be adapted to suit your age group or topic of interest.
Traditional Seaside Fun
Home to the world-famous Alum Bay coloured sands and the birthplace of ship-to-shore radio, The Needles Attraction offers a great trade-off beween learning and fun.
Journey to a Forgotten Land!
A mini-golf adventure that takes players on a prehistoric journey into a forgotten land full of dinosaurs! Includes water features and life-sized dinosaur models.
Queen Victoria's Holiday Home
Bring history to life and get a real insight into the private lives of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their children by visiting their Isle of Wight summer residence.
A purpose-built interactive dinosaur and fossil museum conserving the rich collection of artefacts discovered primarily on the Isle of Wight.
Quintessential Romantic Castle
Sitting high and proud at the heart of the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke Castle has been an artillery fortress, king's prison and royal summer residence.
88 acres of country park gives plenty of room for your school group to run free and let off some steam. With its big mix of features and attractions, Robin Hill makes a great day out and is excellent value for money.
Gorgeous Soft Sandy Beach
Sandown Beach is one of the Isle of Wight's finest and most recognised beaches, with miles of soft golden sands crowned by Sandown's pleasure pier and topped off with spectacular chalk cliffs. Popular with tourists and surfers, Sandown is a traditional 'bucket and spade' holiday beach with all that you expect from an English family beach.
Professional DJ Party Evening
The highlight of the week - one of our talented and experienced professional mobile DJs will lead the group through a 2 hour fun fest of music, lights, dancing and games (age appropriate).
After a short drive to East Cowes it's time to get back on the ferry for the journey home to the "north island" as we call it...
It's a 55 minute crossing to Southampton on the mainland, and an ideal opportunity for everyone to eat a packed lunch before the onward journey
Back on the coach and now it's just a simple case of zipping up the motorway and back to school
The homeward journey should be a lot quieter than the drive down - hopefully everyone will be exhausted from having a great time here on the Isle of Wight and full of precious memories
Again, toilet stops will be taken as necessary
