SUPPORTING TEACHERS WITH THEIR TOUR PLANS SINCE 1967
Founded in 1967 by a maths teacher in Lancashire, NST has worked alongside thousands of school teachers to create unique trip experiences and memories that last a lifetime. That’s why so many schools choose to travel with us each and every year.
TAILOR MADE EXPERIENCES
We don’t believe in packaged or off-the-shelf experiences so with NST, group leaders can expect something a little different. From the moment they start planning a tour with us, we work closely with them to bring their trip ideas to life.
Our tours cover a wide range of subject areas, from the arts, music and humanities, right the way through to languages, sciences, mathematics and history. With our unrivalled knowledge of destinations across the UK, Europe and worldwide, together with years of tour planning experience, we help teachers to create a learning experience that’s unique to their group.
FULL SUPPORT FROM DAY 1
Teachers have our full support from the moment they enquire with us - whatever their ideas, needs or requirements. Whilst groups are away, they benefit from our airport assistance and the support of NST’s representatives, guides and escorts in many destinations – plus 24 hour emergency cover should it be needed. We also pride ourselves on being there for group leaders on their return home too.
SAFE IN OUR HANDS
Safety is at the heart of every NST trip, and our vigilant approach to safety management will offer the reassurance that we know is so important to both group leaders and parents.
What’s more, NST has been awarded the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge, which provides a guarantee that we manage safety on school visits effectively, whilst also creating high quality learning experiences.
NST provides a rigorous Safety Management System and those establishments who choose to travel with NST will be in full compliance with the Department for Education and Scottish Government’s advice on the selection of a school tour operator.
PROTECTING YOUR TOUR
With NST, you’ll have financial protection from the moment you book your trip to your safe return because we’re fully bonded through ABTA and ATOL. Booking with us is the best way to protect parents’ money and give yourself peace of mind.
