Whether its the formidable football clubs of Madrid and Barcelona, a tour of Wembley Stadium or rugby’s Principality Stadium in Cardiff or London‘s Twickenham, whichever city, there’s always a suitable accompanying sporting angle. From visiting the Olympic Museum outside Geneva to catching a baseball game in Boston, we can put together a bespoke itinerary that not only reflects the specifications of the sporting syllabus, but showcases the highlights of your chosen destination.

Of course, there’s more to a PE qualification than just the sporting element. Destinations such as Berlin can complement your classroom teachings on anatomy and physiology whilst commercial and media elements can be covered with visits to venues such as Liverpool FC. And if you’re looking to play a match whilst you’re away, let us know your group’s age, ability and sporting preference and we’ll find you some worthy opponents!
