At Gordano School we have used the School Travel Consultancy to run our Silver expeditions on our behalf for the previous two years. They run planning and expedition prep sessions after school before then leading out expeditions on Exmoor and Dartmoor. They have been incredibly flexible around dates, locations and tailoring their services to our particular needs.Knowing the quality of the staff they use on their expeditions provides real peace of mind and I have no hesitation when groups are out on expedition for the weekend with them. This year both expeditions were blighted by particularly bad weather, in preparation for this, the STC brought in extra staff in advance and I had no concerns that students were anything but safe for both weekends.Chris’ prior experience working in classrooms means he has a great working relationship when planning with the students and they really value the experience on the hill he provides to their planning sessions prior to their expeditions.I thoroughly recommend this very professional expedition company.

We greatly appreciated Chris’s help in running our second ever Gold expedition. The fact that the The School Travel Consultancy is a small company, enabled them to personalise the expeditions to suit our specific needs. The administration of the expeditions ran very smoothly; Chris was quick to answer any queries and provided all the documentation we needed.The expeditions themselves were very successful, thanks largely to the expert training provided by Chris both in the classroom and outdoors. His experience showed through and gave brilliant advice to both students and staff. He built up a good relationship with our students, and I had every confidence in his judgement when he and his team supervised the practise expedition in very challenging weather conditions. I fully trusted him with our students out in the mountains. Our students gained a great sense of achievement from the expeditions and appreciated all the help he gave them in successfully completing their Gold expedition.Thank you very much to Chris and his team for ensuring that our students gained the skills needed to pass their Gold D of E expedition. We’ll definitely be using The School Travel Consultancy in the future. E S, Royal Wooton Bassett Academy
The School Travel Consultancy worked with us recently on our Bronze DofE programme. Their instructors were fantastic, bringing out the best in our pupils. The School Travel Consultancy is a very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable organisation. We will definitely use their services again. D S, Head of Outdoor Education, Bryanston School
