We Share Our Knowledge and Experience with You
Fundamentally we are passionate about travel; who can forget their first school trip? The excitement and trepidation about being away from home, the funny stories that we still share, and the interests and passions sparked that later turned into a career.
Research shows that taking young people out of the classroom not only raises their aspirations and engagement with their subject, but also promotes confidence, resilience and independence.
Nothing pleases us more than hearing how one of our trips has inspired the next designer, scientist or politician!
