Fun Activities for Schools & Groups on the Isle of Wight

Whilst our Isle of Wight school trips and group visits are focused mainly on education, the Island is a great fun place to be with lots of recreational activities on offer.

Make the most of your time away and help your group bond by adding any of these great activities to your itinerary! Whilst not strictly academic, most activities help develop soft skills such as teamworking, decision making, problem solving, accepting responsibility, communication and leadership.

Prices shown do not include travel unless Education Destination is providing a door-to-door service, as we're assuming you're already on the Island. Travel can be arranged for you if required.
