A school is a place for learning, innovation, and fun. But when you take the students outside the classroom, you give them an opportunity to learn more, engage more and put everything they’ve learned in school, into practice! We’ve put together some of the best places for an educational day out in the Manchester area.

1. Manchester Museum

A trip to Manchester Museum is perfect for students of all ages. They will discover more about science, history, and art. Students can step back in time to Ancient Egypt, see amphibians and reptiles from Costa Rica, come up close with a unique tiger, walk beneath the skeleton of a giant whale, and meet a life-size T-rex dinosaur. These are just a sample of the amazing experiences possible at Manchester Museum.

2. Beeston Castle

Create a wonderful history lesson by bringing your class to Beeston Castle to explore life in the medieval fortress or the site’s prehistoric past. Students can travel back in time searching for evidence in the remains of the castle or develop an understanding of the technologies and tools used by people in the Iron Age, Stone Age, and Bronze Age. The castle is located just 1.5 hours from Manchester which makes it the perfect spot for a day-trip.

3. TreeTop Manchester

Physical education can reach new heights with an exciting trip to TreeTop Manchester. Children can challenge themselves safely in the high trees, which provides a great way to build upon vital life skills such as overcoming fears, teamwork and having enormous amounts of fun. There are activities suitable for all Key stages, making it a perfect choice for everyone (teachers too!).
