Friends of Sorrento offers a wide choice of excursion destinations and educational activties that can be arranged to suit a range of curriculum requirements. These could include History, The Classics, Geography, Art, Music, Travel and Tourism, Latin and Italian. In addition to the wide choice of locations listed below, the students can also enjoy less formal subject related activities such as ‘treasure hunts’, art classes, ice cream making demonstrations and tastings, town and country tours on special buses.
Organises are provided with full UK based support to produce an itinerary that suits their visit objectives together with accommodation, transport and inspection visits. A Sorrento based representative is allocated to each visiting group, for the trip’s duration, to assist the organiser and answer any queries. Supportive promotional leaflets can also be produced for distribution to parents and potential sponsors. View example leaflet.
The Sorrento based representative will also provide full support during pre inspection visits to ensure the organiser obtains the necessary information to satisfy the requirements of their school and LEA risk assessment and safety management systems and guidelines.
