Tailor-made Expeditions for Schools

Outposts has a well-earned reputation, gained over many years, for providing outstanding tailor-made schools expeditions overseas as well as trips and adventure experiences.

We believe whole heartedly in learning outside the classroom and a school expedition really does take that to another level. We focus on giving young people the opportunity to develop life skills including communication, planning, budgeting and problem-solving.

Our school expedition itineraries are completely bespoke based on your specific objectives. They might include something adventurous and confidence building like a trek, many want some meaningful cultural interaction perhaps in a school and there is always time for fun, learning new skills such as kayaking or experiencing something out of the ordinary like riding an elephants.

Outposts Expeditions operate to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Tailor-made school expedition reviews

Tailor-made school expedition reviews

"I have worked with Outposts for 2 years and have no doubt in recommending the organisation as an overseas school expedition organiser. I travelled to Nepal this year with 16 girls for 3 weeks on an itinerary organised by Fee Bellamy of Outposts, herself a Nepal specialist. The entire 3 weeks was little short of a 5* recommendation. The staff that supported us in country, the experiences that the girls had in their community projects, the inland travelling arrangements and accommodation, the bonding [training] weekends prior to departure and the general administrative work that was needed could not have been better. I could not fault Outposts and in particular, Fee Bellamy, in any shape or form. We are looking to launch another Nepal trip for two years’ time."
