  • Preview Visits

Why take part in a preview visit?

We understand that you need to fully reassure yourself, your colleagues, governors and your LA before taking a school trip, which is why we offer a full programme of preview visits throughout the year.

A PGL Teacher Preview Trip gives you the best possible insight into your chosen course and destination - along with the opportunity to view the PGL centre, its accommodation and facilities, and meet the centre team.

PGL centres in the UK

Full board accommodation for one night plus all activities are provided free of charge for potential Party Leaders and up to three guests. On weekend previews in the UK we encourage leaders to bring young family members to enjoy the experience. Day visits are also available at all our UK centres by prior arrangement.
