Explore our English Literature & Language School trips for secondary schools which we believe are the most comprehensive & specification-focused of their type. We offer English trips which place the literature of the First World War, in situ, on the battlefields of France & Flanders & in the context of changing attitudes & circumstances as they developed over the course of the war. We also provide educational trips in the UK tailored to both English & Drama/Performing Arts specifications.
The curriculum is the starting point for our itineraries which are designed to complement your classroom teaching & develop:
an understanding of context & its influence on a text • how meaning is conveyed through language, form & structure
an appreciation of how & why interpretations change • identifying & exploring attitudes & values
an ability to relate texts to literary traditions & genres • connecting, comparing & contrasting texts
We have expanded our range of tours to include texts such as Birdsong (visiting the Somme & Messines) & Journey's End (Ypres, the Somme & St Quentin). You can also add a visit to a Christmas Market to any of our tours visiting the First World War battlefields when travelling in late November or December. We have also added to our UK tour programme. Literary London: Shakespeare & Dickens explores the life & times of these giants of English Literature. The World of Jane Austen examines the context which inspired her novels.
