FEEL GOOD FIELD TRIPS

We believe travel should FEEL GOOD for everyone! So, we’re launching Feel Good Field Trips for local schools across our route.

FEEL GOOD TRAVEL.

At Avanti West Coast, we’re all about FEEL GOOD TRAVEL

That means we're determined to make sure every moment of your journey feels good!

We want to connect young people from all backgrounds to learning opportunities and experiences that may previously have been inaccessible to them, and we think that Feel Good Field Trips are a brilliant way to do just that. Feel Good Field Trips gives pupils aged 4-18 the chance to travel across the West Coast Main Line for hands-on learning, fun and culturally diverse days out.
From learning about the science of sound in a state-of-the-art London recording studio, to art workshops in Coventry City of Culture 2021 and cooking on Manchester’s famous Curry Mile, Feel Good Field Trips will offer up to 5,000 pupils previously unattainable field trip experiences. The schools involved are from Avanti West Coast’s network of partner schools on the Avanti Schools Programme, which all have high pupil premium rates.

Got the vibes for  FEEL GOOD FIELD TRIPS?

We kicked off the campaign with a trip to London with pupils from Ashbury Meadow Primary school in Manchester, who were joined by none other than award winning spoken word artist and rapper, George the Poet. George ran a poetry workshop with the children and helped them to create their own spoken word poetry, which they then recorded at Soho Sonic Studios in North London.
Other trips so far have included a hands-on cookery day on Manchester’s iconic Curry Mile, and a visit to Coventry’s Herbert Museum to experience local artist Daniel Lismore’s exhibition ‘Be Yourself: Everyone Else is Already Taken.’

We’re planning more trips with our Community Rail Partners over the next two years, including outdoor adventuring in the Lake District and fashion upcycling in Glasgow. This is just the beginning for our Feel Good Field Trips, and we can’t wait to see what exciting experiences pupils get up to next!
The initiative builds on the Avanti Schools Programme, which aspires to connect young people from a range of backgrounds to opportunities across our route. Those schools who are eligible to take part are the partner schools in our Avanti Schools Programme.
