Group programmes for schools

School trips and educational programmes should be seen as meaningful, positive teaching tools that help intensify the social, personal and emotional development of all students (and teachers!). For both pupils and staff, participating in a school trip abroad not only allows them to have a terrific and unique time during their trip, but they can also benefit from gaining valuable life skills, language improvement and cultural experiences, as well as many other advantages way beyond the end of their time abroad.

Client Testimonials

“I met the Blue Penguin Company and Leigh at Portonovo during the LEND Summer School in 2018. What immediately impressed”me was their very professional and friendly approach. Among the different proposals that my school receives, I chose the Blue Penguin Company to organise a summer stay for a group of 12 girls who study fashion and design.

Leigh organised everything with the utmost punctuality and professionalism. The girls had a wonderful time both at school and with the host families. They took part in lots of extracurricular activities and had lots of fun. Leigh even organised two workshops at a fashion school where the girls learnt techniques relating to their profession. It was a very important experience for their personal and professional growth.”

“My students have been taking part in the programmes of The Blue Penguin Company for more than five years now, and each year they come back with new enthusiasm and an eagerness to improve even more.  The organisation of each programme is perfect, and now I would only ever recommend Leigh and her team to my students who wish to travel abroad  Thank you Leigh.”

“This year we decided to work with The Blue Penguin Company for the first time after always working with Italian based agencies before this.  The difference in the quality of the Internship Placements cannot be compared, and only now do I realise how ‘basic’ our previous experiences had been.  Leigh and her team work hard to find the most appropriate and relevant placements where our students are able to learn new skills, and they are always present to ensure everything runs smoothly.  We are looking forward to returning again soon.”
