Our History


What do the travel companies SchoolPlan, SkiBound, TravelBound, SkiPlan and STS School Travel Service have in common? They were all founded by our chairman John Bowden during the past 46 successful years!

John has a vast appreciation and knowledge of what party leaders and students expect from their educational or winter sports tour.

"Over the past 46 years, I have founded several successful school travel companies. With SST I am proud to have gathered an extremely skilled and experienced group of individuals to make up the Select team. Our ethos is to offer an array of educational and ski tours to match cost with service, alongside quality."

Select introduces the next generation of school travel, with son Martyn at the helm. View our meet the team page to discover more about our experienced team.
