Autumn Newsletter - North of England

Written by: Elmtree Press

Welcome to the Autumn edition of our newsletter, as the term is well under way now  is perhaps the time to start thinking about what there is to do with your students in the coming months and going into 2016. In our newsletter you will find some ideas of places for days out and trips away, some you will be familiar with but perhaps there is something different to inspire you. Also remember that if you are thinking of your annual school trip for next year contact us and we can put together a bespoke trip to your requirements to take the pressure off - see our school trips page for further details here.
