School Trips to Jersey
Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, located between England and France, offering our groups a mix of both cultures, whilst remaining in the British Isles. Jersey became an island after splitting from the Normandy peninsula in 6000BC and has enjoyed a tempestuous past – from becoming a valuable outpost when the Vikings took hold in 800 to being occupied by the German forces during World War II and being fought over by the English and French.
Although it’s just nine miles by five, its diverse attractions and natural beauty offers something for everyone and makes Jersey a truly unique location for you and your students to visit.
Jersey’s rich history also offers some fascinating educational visits - learn about the German occupation and get a real insight into World War 2 history with a visit to the War Tunnels.

Founded by the world-renowned conservationist and author Gerald Durrell, Jersey Zoo gives you the chance to view some of the world's most endangered species within the beautiful surroundings of the Park's 32 acres of extensive paths, manors, lawns, enclosures, lakes and visitor centres.
Mont Orgueil Castle
Mont Orgueil Castle, or Gorey Castle as it was first known, has cast its imposing shadow over the beautiful fishing port of Gorey for more than 800 years. One of the finest examples of a medieval fortress in existence, it is also a symbol of Jersey’s national identity and independent character.
St Brelade’s Bay
This beautiful Jersey beach is one of island’s most popular, loved by visitors for its golden sand and safe swimming. There is plenty to do there including family-friendly activities and watersports, beach cafes and seaside restaurants, beach walks and plenty of space to relax and enjoy the view.
During World War II Jersey became occupied by German forces. The tunnels dug by slave workers from nations across Europe now contain an underground collection of thought provoking exhibits that tell the fascinating story of Jersey’s occupation from resistance, through to starvation, then eventual liberation.
The capital of the island of Jersey, St. Helier is well-known for its award-winning museums and attractions which reflect its seafaring history and the harrowing story of Jersey’s 5-year occupation by the Germans during WWII.
