Already in our 43rd year and it seems that the zest for learning outside the classroom and encouraging youngsters to achieve in a creative, challenging and different environment continues.
The world is a natural learning environment and the most effective teacher there is. Sitting in a classroom is one thing but there are so many subjects that crop up when you’re out exploring the real world. History, geography, science, maths, art and languages never feel like a chore when they are studied as part of an exciting journey.
As a parent of three very young children, I believe that adventure is a basic human need and the younger individuals can experience this the better. For me it’s about giving my girls the freedom to explore in a safe environment, encouraging them to discover their strengths and giving them the resilience to pursue something even if it takes them outside of their comfort zone. It’s about giving them the courage to make decisions on their own, try new things and really engage with other people, young and old.
At Rockley, we see youngsters experience so many positive moments and achieve some amazing things on a weekly basis. As research shows, a residential experience or just a day of learning outside the classroom can be so beneficial to a child’s school life, creating positive, happy and confident individuals. We hope that we get to share these fantastic experiences and opportunities with you and your students.
