We have a range of packages available for PSHE school trips and visits, including our award winning Life Skills Tours for pupils in KS2 and KS3 and our newly introduced Life Skills Workshops!

Life Skills Tours
Aimed at Year 5/6 and Year 7/8 pupils, the Life Skills Zone is Europe’s first super classroom. Part movie set, part learning experience; our Life Skills Tours teach your pupils about citizenship, personal safety and the environment using the latest cinematic technology. Giant projection screens, powerful surround sound, evocative lighting and interactive elements all combine to create an immersive learning environment like no other.
“A visit should be compulsory and part of every school’s curriculum!”
