Our Ethos

By studying Travel and Tourism we are giving students the opportunity to develop knowledge and technical skills in a practical learning environment.

The course will encourage students to think about different types of customers and their individual needs, this will encourage them to consider difference and broaden their knowledge of the world around them.

Students will develop key skills, such as research, report drafting and writing skills and project management. These skills can then be transferred outside of a school environment to help them lead a fulfilled and successful life.
