When the school bus turns into an Airbus

Thanks to Monarch, 600 British kids got to swap their school bus for an Airbus recently and jet off on the ultimate geography field trip.

As a 70s’ school kid, I dreamed of a trip like this! The best we could hope for was our form teacher borrowing the school minibus and taking us for a tour of one of the local attractions – Windsor Great Park or the RAF Memorial.


But Monarch took “school’s out” to a new level, running a nationwide appeal to make education fun. Three schools got exclusive use of a Monarch aircraft for the day. Harris Academy Beckenham flew from Gatwick to Gibraltar, Icknield Community College from Manchester to Verona and Fulbrook Middle School from Birmingham to Dubrovnik.

And despite the excitment of a school trip at 35,000ft, I bet there was still a rush to nab the back row!
