School Travel Forum

The School Travel Forum

The School Travel Forum (STF) provides a benchmark for good school trip providers, giving you the reassurance that all our trips meet, or indeed exceed, the safety standards required by you, your school and your local authority.

By choosing an assured member such as Rayburn Tours, you can rest assured that we:

  • Understand and facilitate the needs of educational travel as determined by the STF.
  • Manage safety effectively, meeting the STF’s benchmark for good school travel safety.
  • Offer fair terms and conditions and the best financial security.
  • Are fully inspected every year by independent experts.

Our Managing Director, John Boyden, was a founding member of the STF. Today, our Commercial Director, Jamie Boyden, is proud to hold a seat on the committee.

The STF’s Reassurance To Group Leaders and Schools
“The STF is much more than a simple membership organisation, all Assured Members of the STF are required to adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards and be audited each year by Argent Health & Safety, the UK’s leading Health and Safety Consultancy specialising in Travel, to ensure continuing compliance.” – schooltravelforum.com
