Great Learners are Determined

The Dorset School Games is coming back to Poole Park this June and for the fourth year running Rockley will provide the sailing events that encourage local school pupils to compete and achieve their personal best.

Learning to sail and taking part in watersports encourages children to interact positively with each other and to develop their personal and social skills so they can form new friendships and grow into confident individuals. It also helps to develop higher-level skills and can increase confidence, determination and independence, increasing communications and encouraging team support. 

Determination to keep going!

Watch the video from the RYA to hear what Professor Bill Lucas says about those that are determined with a don't give up attitude. 

The Dorset School Games strives to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best. The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.

Let’s get centre specific! >

When it comes to residential activity trips for young people, there is generally a ‘top 5’ when it comes to what group leaders are looking for. Amongst safety, types of activities and company reputation is always centre and location. This is why, as a company, when choosing an activity centre, the location is at the forefront of our decision-making. Our centres have been specifically selected for their capacity to offer a range of fantastic activities and enhance both the pupil and group leader adventure experience.

We're making waves!
