proud to set our safety standards at the highest level...

 Our parent company, The School Travel Company Ltd., holds a Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge through its assured membership of the School Travel Forum. Please Note: Our Brecon and Woodlands centres do not come under the scope of the LOtC Badge.  However, the former is licenced by the Adventurous Activities Licencing Board, the latter via an external audit.

The School Travel Company Ltd. is also a member of  ABTA and holds an ATOL from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), demonstrating our strength and stability, and this guarantees our customers’ financial security.

We are proud to set our safety standards at the highest level and we never compromise. Due to our stringent standards of safety, we seek accreditations through. All of our centres are regularly assessed by qualified external auditors, as well as our own internal Technical Advisors, ensuring we are always working to the highest safety standards. The vast majority of Local Authorities have already pre-approved our trips because of our standards and accreditations.

Acorn has consistently been at the forefront of driving up safety awareness and standards in the school and group travel industry. We are dedicated to promoting best practice and safety in school travel. We adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards that are externally verified each year by leading Health and Safety Consultants. All our procedures are in line with the DoE ‘Health and Safety on Educational Visits’ and our Health and Safety policy covers all aspects of safety on your trip. Our Safety Management System has been developed, following Health & Safety Executive guidelines.
