Who are we?

STS School travel, Pavilion Tours, UK connection and Skiplan are now all known as Equity

At Equity we are specialists who will work with you to deliver great learning experiences outside of the classroom for young people that inspire them back at school and in everyday life.

We have been taking young people around the world since 1933, making us one of the longest school tour operators in the UK, which also makes us one of the most knowledgable and trusted travel providers in the industry. We specialise in delivering high quality educational tours, music and performing arts experiences, ski trips and sports tours.

In 2014 we rebranded, merging Equity with our sisters companies: School Travel Service (STS), Pavilion Tours, UK Connection and SkiPlan. Our rebrand was more than just a new logo, it was a commitment to ‘enhance the lives of young people through experiences that inspire'.

Learning is at the heart of our company. Every tour that is developed has this aspect as the core focus, but keeping that in mind, the fun never ends.

Specialists

We work hard to know all about your chosen destination so we can provide you with all the little details you might not think about on your school trip. Just like we work hard to understand your subject so we can recommend excursions and activities to enhance your trip so students get a learning experience out of all your adventures, whether they know it or not!

Across the World

Where in the world do you want to travel on your school trip? We will make it happen. With learning opportunities in the farthest reaches of the globe let us help you create the perfect itinerary close to home or a long plane ride away.

Any Subject

We will create a special school trip experience for any subject. Whether you need to organise a school tour to cater to your History, Classics, Dance, Drama, Science, or Art & Design students, we can create the ideal programme for them.

Full Protection

We’re both fully ABTA and ATOL bonded and are members of the School Travel Forum, guaranteeing you complete peace of mind when you book your school trip with us.
