Suffolk-based Galloway School Tours was a finalist in the National School Travel awards last week.

Galloway, which has been running school travel for 50 years, organises bespoke educational holidays for school parties.

The national School Travel Awards shine a spotlight on the very best across the school travel sector and Galloway School Tours, based in Mendlesham, was proud to be nominated for Best School Tour Operator.

Jo Allum, Galloway’s school tour manager said: “This is a reflection of the hard work and effort the team here at Galloway undertake on a daily basis and I’m delighted we have been nominated in such a high profile category. All of those nominated are great companies and to be even included in the short list is a great achievement.”

Battlefield tours are particularly popular and parties come from right across the UK, and abroad.

They organised school tours from as far as Scotland and Dorset. School parties also fly in from abroad for battlefield tours, including from Switzerland and Dubai.
