Success Stories


Dame Alice Harpur School in Bedford is an independent day school educating girls aged between 7 and 18 years. The school comprises of a Junior School and a Senior School with approximately 850 girls in total.
TripSafely approached the school to run a pilot scheme to help develop the online school trip management system. Jean-Marc Hodgkin, Dame Alice’s Bursar said. “TripSafely’s proposal looked ideal. We were finding that although we felt our educational visits were being run safely, the existing system was unwieldy and involved a lot of time and paperwork. The online system will make it easier for staff to plan and manage trips.

Ashford School and Ashford Friars Prep School are independent schools for boys and girls ages 3-18. Voted Independent School of the year 2010, Ashford School has since gone onto achieve many other accolades including, Good Schools Guide award winner, a top five boarding schools as voted by The Archant Good Schools, and finally Ashford School ranked one of the UK’s top 20 coeducational.
Challenge – Wanted a solution to replace their cumbersome paper-based trip planning procedures and documents.
Nicky Timms, Educational Visits Coordinator at Ashford School commented “We found that although our paper based system worked, it was time consuming to complete, we had to wait for signatures on documents and had problems tracking paperwork as it moved around the school. We also felt that there was an inconsistent approach to planning trips”.
