Sportica - France
Sportica is a great venue for a school or college trip. UK schools and colleges continue to return to the complex as there is so much to do on site. Grass and new generation football fields are in walking distance for training. As part of the complex you can enjoy a selection of sports and leisure activities. There’s a super indoor swimming pool with a giant slide, roller-skating hall, table tennis, ten pin bowling and tennis courts. You can also reserve the superb sports hall or simply walk to the beach. The French seaside town of Gravelines is just a short coach ride from Calais and not far from the Belgian border. For this reason it is perfect for a WW1 battlefield tour and you can easily combine this with a Language
group, a sports group or any other subject department within school. You’ll find plenty of local character here including a typical
town square with traditional shops and bars. Furthermore there’s a small local harbour and a pleasant sandy beach.
Paris and Disneyland
Paris is a rich and varied educational experience which is why many schools and college departments continue to book every single year. With our support we encourage our customers to tailor make their own itinerary. The Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Stade de France are some of the most popular attractions. We like to include a boat ride on the river Seine as we believe it is the best way to see the French capital.
A four day, three night tour will give you the opportunity to get around most of the sights and will also allow you to spend a full day in Disneyland.
Add a little bit of flavour to your tour and take your group over to
Italy. Lido di Jesolo is a superb resort with sandy beaches and clear waters and is perfect for schools. Venice is only 30 minutes away from Lido di Jesolo therefore a day excursion is a must.
A dose of culture, history and sport is what you will experience if you choose Italy for your tour destination.
Both France and Belgium offer an amazing battlefield experience and you will have the chance to visit both of these fascinating countries if you opt for this tour. Discover what it was like to live in trenches in Diksmuide during WW1 and join others from around the world to pay your respects at the Menin Gate ceremony, which
still takes place every day of the year at 20:00. Combine this amazing experience with a fun filled itinerary to give your students a memorable tour on so many levels. Our Sportica accommodation in Northern France is a great base to rest your head and is only 20 minutes from the port of Calais. Sportica offers a range of evening entertainment that will keep your students occupied at the end of long day.
Spain is a superb tour destination for a school, college or sports club with plenty of great cities and beach resorts. We can arrange a number of cultural visits and sports tours with top class training facilities.

considering if you are planning a tour for your school or college.
