OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1932 by Surgeon Commander George Murray Levick RN, a survivor of Captain Scott’s final expedition, who saw that arduous and scientific exploration could act as a highly effective medium for helping young people fulfil their potential. More than 80 years later that vision still applies and is reflected in our mission.
