Thank you from Student Horizons

The first quarter of 2020 has certainly not been what we envisioned it to be. At the start of the year, our tour development specialists were working closely with schools and teachers to plan amazing and inspirational student tours for the bright young minds of tomorrow. Students were excited, ready to create Experiences for Life with their teachers and friends at destinations all over the world. In only a matter of a few months, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on schools, communities, and countries around the world.

A message from Managing Director Jamie Wansey

The COVID-19 global situation has created an unprecedented set of circumstances for the global travel industry and like all travel businesses, we are not immune to the economic impact.

It’s that International Women’s Day time again, and it’s fantastic to see a day celebrating and uplifting females being recognised with greater fanfare all over the world. However, an occasion such as this is not just to celebrate and recognise the achievements of women. It also highlights the journey towards gender equality, and how far there is still to go.
