why choose

  • Teacher with PGL staff member

Putting you first

We could tell you about the quality of our centres, the great food and the comfortable accommodation.

We could tell you about the huge range of activities for your pupils, our specially designed, curriculum-linked courses and packed programmes, which all help place us head-and-shoulders above the rest.

But the real PGL difference is in our people. We love what we do and it shows.

We’ll put you and your group at the heart of everything we do.

We work with lots of school teachers and we know that no two groups are the same.

From the first contact to the day you leave centre, we’re here to make sure everything runs just as you’d like it.

Choose PGL and achieve more

Engaging each child; helping them discover the joy of learning through adventure.

We love it – it’s very rewarding work.

We want each person to get the most from their stay.
So we talk to you, then tailor each course around the needs of your group.
We create a magic around each activity - our enthusiasm is infectious.

You’ll see your children thrive on success.
You’ll see them connect – with each other, with our staff, with the task at hand.
You’ll see real value in the memories, confidence and new-found motivation they’ll take back to school.

Whether it's an outdoor activity session in the UK, a French language-learning adventure in Paris, a ski trip in the mountains or sailing on the Med, we want each individual to get the most from their time away, and bring back positive memories of a trip that really made a difference.

Discover a nicer place to stay

From the moment you arrive, your Group Leader or ‘Groupie’ will be there to greet you.
They’re there to make your life easier and will ensure you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
They’ll organise all your group’s activities and itinerary, make sure you’re all in the right place at the right time – not just for activities or excursions but for mealtimes, evening entertainment – and anything else on your schedule.

At the end of an active day, you’ll also find your accommodation is altogether a cut above the average.
An en suite twin or single room for you is the norm with PGL.
Nearly all centres now offer en-suite rooms for your group too.
As their teacher, you and your group will always be roomed close together.

Our on-site facilities are no less than you’d expect.
Recreational space – indoors and outdoors – is plentiful. 
There are comfortable teachers’ lounges. They are places to relax and unwind with free Wi-Fi, reading material and tea and coffee making facilities for you to use throughout your stay.

And you’ll enjoy your food with us too: freshly cooked meals, varied menus with lots of healthy choices, all served by friendly, approachable staff in pleasant surroundings.

It all makes for a school trip to remember - for all the right reasons!
