With you every step of the way Taking learning beyond the classroom is widely known to help young people build strong, positive relationships and independence, as well as improving academic achievement. A school trip often brings a sense of experience and enjoyment to learning, supporting the wider character development and resilience students need to deal with life’s inevitable challenges. At NST, we passionately believe in the importance of enriching educational experiences outside the classroom. That’s why you won’t find a wider choice of destinations, inspiring visits, educational guided tours, and hands-on workshops anywhere else. This year, we’ve also introduced our LIVE! student events led by industry professionals, giving students a bridge into the world beyond the classroom as they prepare to become work-ready.

That’s where NST can help. We’re an LOtC accredited provider, giving you peace of mind that all the elements of your trip have been carefully checked on your behalf - a view supported by the DfE’s recent recommendations on selecting a travel provider. We’re the travel company of choice for over 35,000 group leaders, but we know that what counts is the help and support that you receive. That’s why we’re committed to doing our absolute best to provide you with the experience and support that you need to match your requirements and budget and create a school trip that your students will remember long after they return to the classroom.

TOP VISIT HARRY POTTER WORKSHOPS A programme of educational workshops has been created to complement the Studio Tour. There are subject-specific options available for English, drama & performing arts groups, providing options for both GCSE and A-Level groups. These workshops are delivered in a purpose-built classroom and use the Harry Potter™ film series as an example of the wider context and theories surrounding filmmaking. You’ll even get access to free downloadable pre- and post-visit resource packs to use in the classroom. Pitching - All films begin with an idea. This workshop is designed to encourage pupils to come up with their very own film idea and condense it into a pitch of 25 words or less which would sell it to a film executive.

Step on to authentic sets, discover the magic behind spellbinding special effects and explore the behind-the-scenes secrets of the Harry Potter film series.

Instructional Writing - Students will get the chance to examine authentic artefacts from the film series before using these to devise their own game and instructions.

Screenplay Stories - Students will have the opportunity to study the key conventions of story writing and discover how writers use the written word
