NASA trips continuing to exceed expectations


Our NASA trip continues to deliver fantastic learning experiences for schools from all over the globe, showcasing how Science and Maths studies directly influence the day-to-day life at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre!

"Overall a great educational, hands-on experience! Putting textbook Science into real life play. 9/10 trip! - Harkiran Aulakh, Teacher, John Oliver Secondary School, Canada

"We had an awesome time! Lyn our rep really was amazing, she went out of her way to look after us and is a real credit to your company. The whole experience of organising this trip has been brilliant and I wouldn’t hesitate to use EA again, and will recommend you to other staff for their trips. Once I’ve recovered, I’ll think about what trip I want to do next!!"- James Fendek, Aldridge School, Walsall, United Kingdom, March 2014

Following the Royal footsteps in New Zealand!


Recent trips to New Zealand have provided a great opportunity for schools to put their Geography Tourism studies into real life (as well as blazing a trail for Kate, Wills and George!). Discussions with local tourism and business providers gave students great insight into the landscape of the country and how the local people have worked to build sustainable and successful businesses. Check out Western Springs College (NZ) trip highlights below...


Teachers favourite: Milford Sound (they were also lucky enough to see dolphins!)

Students favourite:Jetboat trip on Lake Wakatipu and Gold Mining at Dudley Cottage in Arrowtown.

Four lucky students even went bungy jumping!

Follow in the footsteps of the Royals with your students! Email us at [email protected] to find out more.

Why is learning outside the classroom important?


Here at EA we are constantly reminded of the benefits of learning outside the classroom with all the photos and messages we receive. However it is also affirming when research backs this up such as the following from the UK Government, which was launched in recent years.


The following manifesto was developed as a shared statement of intent for those organisations who are willing to sign up to its aim of bringing about quality learning experiences for children.

Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievement through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn.
