Happiness in Good Relationships

Good relationships make us happier and healthier. Fact! Other people matter, your happiness and well-being is directly impacted upon by your relationships and connections with others. 

Body Image

Real happiness and success comes from the strong relationships we form as well as fundamental human qualities such as resilience, humility, enthusiasm, persistence or the desire to achieve a positive or worthwhile outcome. 

It's these kind of social skills that young people learn and the new relationships they form on a residential trip that develops their confidence and enhances a real sense of belonging. 

What are the outcomes of forging strong relationships?

  • Opportunities to break down existing barriers, hierarchies and power relationships
  • Students and teachers work more collaboratively in unfamiliar surroundings on unfamiliar tasks where the teacher is not automatically the expert
  • Students are more willing to ask for help
  • Opportunities to develop and practice key social skills
  • Young people feel a real sense of community and belonging
  • Residential trips are a leveller for students and staff

On a residential trip, in an outside environment, youngsters are not judged based on their academic achievements but instead are valued in different ways and discover new ways of being successful

Strong relationships84% of secondary school students and 71% of key stage two pupils said that because of the residential trip they get on better with other pupils in their class.*

A Rockley adventure focuses on inclusivity, team spirit, encouragement, motivaton and fun - with that comes self-belief, achievement and positive life-long friendships. 

Other people matter, your happiness and well-being is directly impacted upon by your relationships and connections with others.

We catch up with second year student Megan, about life on Rockley's Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport and Physical Activity (Outdoors) course. Currently working in her spare time locally for a watersports company and buzzing off the back of recently passing both her RYA Windsurf and Dinghy Instructor courses, we find out what made her choose Rockley College and how things are going so far......

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!
