We’re dedicated to your child’s safety and personal development.
We understand that with our commitment to your son or daughter, we are assuming a significant responsibility. This responsibility is one we take very seriously. We provide opportunities for young people to develop their personal skills and accomplish extraordinary things during their time with us.
This is not a holiday; it’s often a once in a lifetime opportunity and we have to make every moment count.
We have been delivering school expeditions since 2002 and have created an outstanding life-enhancing programme for your child. Our school expeditions ensure your child is fully supported from the moment they sign up to the moment the come home with dirty clothes and thousands of amazing memories.
Our school expeditions vary to other trips we offer as they are fully supported and managed by our staff in the UK and in country, along with qualified and experienced expedition leaders and teachers who are with the students throughout their expedition. We also manage the flights, transfers on route and in-country, visas, insurance, adventure elements and much more – meaning you have the reassurance of knowing that every aspect of their expedition has been preplanned.

This expedition will provide your son or daughter with extraordinary opportunities.
Life on expedition will place them in situations that cannot be replicated in the classroom. Students looking to enter UK universities have the additional opportunity to gain UCAS points or a Universities Award. This will involve the successful completion of a portfolio of work alongside their expedition. The experience will set them apart from the rest of their peers in the eyes of future employers, colleges and universities.
Whilst travelling to an exciting part of the world, they will contribute to very rewarding and important award-winning projects. Our community, wildlife and environmental projects are fun, memorable and exciting. Working on projects gives them unique opportunities to integrate with new cultures, speak new languages, make new and lasting friendships and improve their leadership and team-working skills.
They will be taking on new challenges, many of which will push them further than they think they can go, but they will soon realise that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.
The unrivalled support we offer starts here in the UK with a dedicated fundraising team who are on hand to keep your child enthused and inspired in the months before the trip and to answer any concerns or queries you might have.
Every member of our team during the fully supported expedition is dedicated to giving your son/daughter the best experience whilst prioritising their safety throughout. Prior to visiting your child’s school, we have undergone various sign off procedures. We are very proud to hold the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge which is your reassurance that we have tried and tested systems in place to ensure their safety on expedition.
You can contact us via email, instant online chat or good old-fashioned telephone. We encourage you to keep in contact with us, if we know your son/daughter is struggling with their fundraising we will do all we can to help. Payments are staggered and we can even organise personal payment plans if you need a little extra support.
We also hold an Air Travel Organisers Licence (ATOL 6608) to ensure financial protection for you. For more information about ATOL visit the website www.atol.org.uk
