Creating school trip education resources

Together with senior, qualified, practising and professional teachers, I work with visitor attractions and leisure venues to create memorable and educational school trip programmes to drive off-peak volume.

 

Formerly known as Minds Ignited, I ensure education and school trip programmes speak the language of a teacher, and combine them with brand values of the attraction and the National Curriculum to create school trip resources and programmes steeped in education value and fun.

We create on-site education workshops, resources and pre and post-visit lessons (including worksheets) - all linked to your brand and the National Curriculum.

Three of our education programmes have won Best School Trip awards.
