Which is your favourite Discover the World Education destination?

Italy is the perfect place to visit for an education trip as no other country blends history, geography, religious studies and the arts quite like Italy does! Plus, Italian cuisine is by far my favourite and you haven’t tried a pizza until you have tried one in Naples!

Which destination would your most like to visit next?

China! The fascinating blend of old and new and a culture that appears so different from our own really excites me. It’s definitely on my must-visit list.

When you are travelling what are your favourite things to do?

That is an easy one! You'll always find me in a restaurant or café, trying local dishes.

Which school trip activity do you most recommend?

As a complete food lover, I cannot recommend our “dine like a local” experiences enough. The flavour of a country really helps you to immerse yourself in their culture. Often, a memory of an amazing trip can come flooding back to me just with the taste of a certain food.

Do you have any top tips for organising the best school trip possible?

Get the students excited during lessons. Try using our classroom resources that directly link to places they will visit on the trip. Seeing what they have previously learnt about, with their own eyes, really enhances the magic of a school trip and helps students to feel more connected to their subject.

Do you have a must-pack item?

A notepad and a pen. There is very little that can’t be achieved with a notepad and pen. Perfect for airplane games, quizzes and recording what you learnt from your day exploring.
