About Us

BXM Expeditions is the Largest school expedition providers in the UK, running over 400 The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award trips a year. Now buying in 500 brand new tents a year, we haven’t actually changed much from when we owned just 4 tents in 2010. We are still just as passionate about young people being able to access the outdoors regardless of their geographical location, financial or emotional situation. The only company to have had a system personally built for the work we do, we are able to offer what no other DofE company can. 

The vision of our founder Ben, was to change the overpriced outdoor market for young people to make it more accessible and affordable for everyone to get in to the outdoors safely and we still run in the same way with the same ethos and values 10 years later. Ben is still involved with the direction of the company although we have a committed and experienced expedition management team who run the operations, with over 200 outdoor instructors we were able to create The Venture Award in 2017 which acts as a pre-award for students in Year 7 and 8. Not only this but we have created BXM Store for people to be able to access kit to buy or hire at a discounted price . Often seen as the UK’s leading company in its field working with over 100 happy schools from all over the country offering expert knowledge, sophisticated systems and value for money, we have built up strong relationships with our clients and are able to provide testimonials on request. This is reflected in our impeccable safety and rebooking record.
