UK museums are invited to list themselves on a database for school trips funded by Hyundai

Museums across the UK are invited to create a listing on a new database that will support cash-strapped schools to book funded school trips.

Launching in 2023, the Great British School Trip powered by Hyundai scheme will provide financial support to schools most impacted by the cost of living crisis in order to help them pay for outings they may not otherwise be able to afford. The scheme has been set up by the car manufacturer Hyundai in response to a huge drop in school visits caused by the pandemic and the current energy crisis.

The programme aims to support 25,000 schoolchildren to go on school trips by the end of its first year. If successful, it is hoped that it will become a regular programme for schools.

The scheme will provide a booking system for teachers and is seeking to list as many venues on the system as possible to ensure schools are able to find options close to them in all nations and regions of the UK.

Museums of all sizes and types, from small local museums to large nationals, are invited to sign up for free to be listed on the database. Bookings made via the programme will come through the museum’s regular booking system.
