Equity School Travel
Worldwide educational, ski and sports tours For over 80 years we’ve been working alongside teachers to enhance the lives of young people with life-changing trips, focused around learning and developing life skills. Every year we help over 50,000 students get out of the classroom and learn in new and exciting ways with educational tours, ski trips, performing arts tours and sports tours. Each trip benefits from decades of experience and understanding of how a destination and an itinerary can be tailored to meet the learning objectives of the group.

Curriculum focused tours bringing classroom learning to life Our team of subject and destination specialists work with teachers to build a tour that will bring classroom learning to life and enrich the school experience of their students, motivating them to achieve more. We have worked with a team of education experts, including the UCL Institute of Education, to ensure that our tours continue to be in line with the ever changing landscape of education. Working for the Government on an award-winning tour Equity, in partnership with UCL Institute of Education, is appointed to run the official First World War Centenary Battlefield Tours Programme on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Department of Education. This initiative offers all state maintained secondary schools in England the opportunity to take one teacher and two students to the battlefields of northern France. The programme was awarded Best Educational Product 2014 by the British Educational Travel Association and Education Partnership of the Year at the Education Investor Awards 2015.
Providing the complete ski experience for schools and groups As market leaders in school ski, we are passionate about providing the complete ski experience for schools and groups – travelling to over 70 resorts in 7 countries. We handpick all resorts for their suitability for school groups: the size of the ski area, the difficulty of the skiing, quality and location of our accommodation and the range of evening activities are all considered to ensure we offer the complete package for our groups. Equity's Ski programme is underpinned by its exclusive Equity Club, hotels in the Alps designed and operated for schools. Inspiring young people through innovative sports experiences Equity has partnered with a number of prestigious clubs, national federations and highly acclaimed centres of sporting excellence who share our commitment to developing young people through their passion for sport. Our sports programmes focus on progress, development, growth and performance offering groups the opportunity to train using facilities usually reserved for professional clubs.
