Go Ape Wins Best Attraction in the School Travel Awards

 

We're so pleased to announce that we won the Best UK Attraction/Destination award at this year's School Travel Awards at the Royal Garden Hotel, London. 

Hosted by the School Travel Organiser on the 15th November 2019, these awards recognise and celebrate the people and the companies behind inspiring school trips, including teachers, attractions and providers. 

This year we were lucky to be nominated for two awards voted for by teachers, Best UK Attraction/Destination and the Learning/Education team of the year award! We were up against some great companies for both awards and are really honoured to have been named the Best UK Attraction/Destination!

It was a great awards ceremony with a brilliant performance from the cast of Jamie the musical, superb meal and a great networking opportunity to chat to fellow school trip providers. 

Attending the ceremony this year were a few members of our events team, Sharron, Chloe, Natalie, Richard, Georgina, along with two of our site managers, Tara and Luke alongside Jo from our marketing team!

As a team we love being at the awards. We love hearing about what school trips mean to both the students and the teachers. 

This year we sponsored the 'My Best School Trip' Award. An award created to reward schools and celebrate educational visits that achieve their objectives as well as giving children a rich and rewarding experience. Our very own Sharron Scott loved presenting the award to the winning school (Kingswood House School, Surrey) on the night. It's great to see trips being recognised for the amazing trips they do. 

 

Here are some quotes from the team about the night! 

'The food was amazing, and it was great to mingle with fellow school providers and teachers. Being able to hear first-hand what school trips mean to the school, teachers and children was great!'

'Great event to be a part of!' 

'Proud to be a sponsor at the awards this year'

'Very proud moment, we have worked hard all year and it was a great reward to attend the event and then win an award!'

'It was great to see the teachers and what it meant for them to win the award first-hand. We got to hear from the School Trip Champion last year and how both the award and money had helped/meant to them throughout the year and it was great to see another teacher win it this year!' 

A big thank you to all the wonderful teachers who voted for us this year! We look forward to welcoming you back next year!
