At Club Europe, we provide students with inspiring performing opportunities and absolutely love hearing all about the benefits they reap as a result - a boost in confidence, newly-formed friendships, or simply the broadening of horizons through being immersed in different cultures.
Are these related to the curriculum though?
As a Learning Outside the Classroom accredited operator, we understand the importance of providing enriching experiences for students and that increasingly, senior leadership teams are asking that these experiences have a direct link to the curriculum. One of our music leaders recently approached us with a request for a GCSE Music trip to London, and we’re really excited to be designing an itinerary for them which includes curriculum-specific workshops and excursions.
The students will take a trip to the hit musical, Wicked, to see their set work ‘Defying Gravity’ and attend a personal, interactive workshop led by professional musicians to cover part of the ‘Instrumental Music 1700-1820’ area of study. They are also looking forward to performing in front of enthusiastic new audiences, seeing some iconic London sights and hitting the shops!
All of our tours are bespoke, so whatever the age of your students, and whatever your exam board of choice, we will be happy to help you design a tailor-made tour which ticks all the boxes.
