We provide a wide range of school courses for students aged between 10 and 18 years of age. We run courses all year round including summer multi activity courses, ski weekends, Duke of Edinburgh Expedition programmes, and rock and mountain climbing itinerariesView full details
Past and current customers include Eton College, St Paul's School, The British School of Paris and Trent College.
All of our courses are bespoke, we only use fully qualified instructors and guides, and safety is always our top priority. None of our courses are off-the-shelf products. They are courses where teachers often get involved with themselves in terms of planning, preparation, fund raising and training. This is of course according to your individual situation and time and budget constraints.
You pay direct wherever possible, whether it is to the guide or the accommodation provider so there is no middle man. And our courses can run from as few as 6 students to a whole year group with as many as 70 students.
To date we have enjoyed a 100% success rating with all of our courses in terms of successful participation and course completion.
