Parents... What you need to know!
'Thank you for all your hard work in making the trip to Morocco an experience of a life time. My son had a fantastic time and we cannot thank you enough for ... an experience he will never forget - he had the time of his life. It far exceeded expectations.'
Parent, Morocco Expedition
Challenge, determination, experience, responsibility and achievement are just some aspects that your child will experience when on expedition with us. Whilst your child will be focused on making the most of their expedition you naturally will be concerned with other aspects such as safety, organisation, communication, quality of experience and value for money.
Here at Far Frontiers we are experts at taking school teams on expedition, with more than 20 years of experience taking students on expedition to some of the most remote parts of the world.
We have an impeccable safety record and a worldwide network of partners who ensure every part of the expedition is pre-planned, risk assessed and suitable for the children who are on the expedition. We leave nothing to chance! Read more about our safety and accreditations here
Organisation and Communication
We believe you need to have all the information in order to send your child on expedition with confidence. We will aim to meet with you prior to the expedition as well as give you access to our members’ area where we will post all information regarding your child’s expedition. We use only the best expedition leaders who, along with our local partners, ensure all logistics and arrangements link seamlessly.
Quality of Experience - this isn't just another holiday!
Every expedition we run has substance and meaning. We tailor every schedule to ensure that the children on the expedition get the most out of their time with us and access all that their chosen destination has to give. We support and work with worthwhile community projects and relevant educational projects to ensure children are immersed rather than just scratching the surface.
"It was a fabulous expedition and offered an amazing experience to our students. It has made such a positive impact on them all and for some has been a real confidence booster. The travel bug has bitten" - Mr Leake, Bradford Grammar School
Value for Money
Our operations and logistics team work tirelessly to ensure we get the very best value for every aspect of every expedition. We understand this is a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity for your child and believe our expeditions deliver lifelong learning and an experience they will draw on for years to come.
Any personal vaccinations are excluded from the cost of our expeditions. The price will depend where you go, whether to your G.P. or via a specialist Travel Health Clinic. One such clinic is Nomad Travel Clinic. Once your trip is off the ground you can contact them and they will give you a 10% reduction in these costs (see below- Discounts). Further details will be shown on your private school web page.
