We are PGL Beyond

We’re more than an adventure group, education organisation or travel business.

PGL Beyond is a network of brilliant brands with a shared mission, to spark breakthroughs in young people through transformational experiences that go beyond the classroom.

As a family of leading educational travel brands, we’ve been enriching the lives of young people for over 60 years.

Together, we get young people out there – beyond the classroom – with amazing experiences that help them reach beyond their own expectations to realise how brilliant they are.

Setting the standard

Every organisation in The Breakthrough Network is committed to the highest standards in development outcomes, safety, and sustainability. These are the commitments we proudly make and measure ourselves against.

For young people, we’re focused on nurturing the things that grow best outside the classroom – relationships experiences, abilities, character and health.

These development outcomes make up our unique, group-wide REACH framework.

REACH is baked into all our products and ensures every experience we offer as a network of brands, is designed to deliver great outcomes for young people.

We empower young people to push their comfort zones, try new things and put their potential to the test. And we do this effectively because of our dedication to safe places, services and experiences, guided by the experts.

Our In Safe Hands kitemark is a symbol of our unrivalled pastoral care across our network of brands, and our 5 ‘safe’ standards:

  • Safe people
  • Safe places
  • Safe spaces
  • Safeguarding
  • Safe travels
  • We care for our places and planet.
  • We are champions of wellbeing
  • We play our part in society by acting progressively for the betterment of our colleagues, customers and communities.

Fundraising, volunteering, carbon reduction, recycling, waste, people development, health and well being, re-wilding…

These are all examples of our Better Beyond Adventure programme that helps us be a force good and build a more responsible, sustainable business for future generations.
