Why PGL?

  • Why PGL

You can trust us

There’s a reason teachers and youth leaders trust PGL.  Each year more than 7,000 schools and groups enjoy an educational residential course at a PGL centre.  

Parents trust us too - 17,000+ children and teenagers come to PGL during their school holidays for an adventure holiday with a difference – and that’s not including the thousands of families who come to PGL for some quality time away together.

More than 55 years of experience have made PGL the largest and most trusted provider of children’s adventure courses and outdoor education in the UK.  We are proud to have gained British Council accreditation; we are also a part of the global tour operator Cox and Kings.

So, when it comes to finding a provider you can trust with your bookings, you need look no further than PGL.

We look after your clients

We are the specialists

Residential adventure and educational courses for young people are what PGL does, all year round.  

Our people are enthusiastic; they’re also highly trained, experienced and completely committed to ensuring your clients have the best experience. Many of them work all year round and all are appropriately qualified – whether to teach English or abseiling!

On arrival your young clients are assigned a Group Leader. The role of the ‘Groupie’ (as they are known) is to be a friendly and helpful face – the child’s first point of contact and someone who will look out for them.

We have 10 of our own, year-round, outdoor education centres in the UK, (and a further 2 in France) where your clients can follow our EFL, adventure and international programme.  Using our own centres means we can guarantee the quality of our accommodation and our staff support at a wide range of locations.

It also means your clients can come to us at whatever time of year suits them best, (subject to availability of course!). There’ll be plenty of opportunities to mix with British children on their holidays or school trips – a chance to have fun together and build confidence.

Being education specialists also means that when your clients come to PGL to improve their English, you can be sure they will be attending courses that are specifically designed to meet the needs of children, led by specialised staff whose talent is for working with young people.

We look after you too

Outstanding customer support lies at the heart of our success.

When you book with us you can rely on our dedicated and knowledgeable business development managers, (who work year-round with agents like you), to provide all the support you need.

Our business managers offer a complete service – providing quotes, dealing with requests for information, providing booking support and organising the exact trip you’re looking for.  
We can advise, arrange and answer any questions that may arise – and because we own all our centres, you can rely on the information we give you – as we don’t depend on a third party, we can answer your questions quickly and reliably.
