There is no better way of bringing the history textbooks to life than a visit to the battlefields of the Ypres Salient. Preserved trenches, museums and cemeteries always provide an incredibly thought-provoking and stimulating experience for students.
"Excellent experience, as ever."
Jenny Wong, Latymer Upper School, London
"The students said it all … they had the best time. They have been talking about it ever since and parents are delighted with the experience their children have had."
Wendy Ward, Sir James Smith's School, Party Leader, Cornwall
