School Trips to the Battlefields – World War One Study Tours

School trips to the Battlefields have the potential to leave an indelible impression on any pupil studying the conflict, providing insight to the sheer scale of the events that occurred whilst strengthening their understanding of the experiences suffered by soldiers and civilians alike. More than 650 military cemeteries are scattered across the landscape as a visible reminder. Many schools will look for a personal or local angle to bring the most out of the experience for their pupils by connecting the tour to the classroom – locating the grave of a former pupil or an ancestor of a current pupil are among the most popular ideas.
