Travel and Tourism at Bradford Forster Academy
“Tourism is the biggest industry in the world” Martin Parr
Through teaching with excellence and modelling exemplary behaviour, we aim to foster and ignite an interest in the Travel and Tourism industry and to challenge students to become more resourceful and resilient. We aim to broaden students’ perspectives to provide a global dimension to their studies.
Our vision for our students is to be able to explore the different reasons why people travel and become well rounded young people who demonstrate good communication and interpersonal skills.
