Prep for your trip early… why? 

  • Because you can reserve your space for when is convenient to you
  • Parents have longer to pay making it more affordable
  • Plan early and you just may benefit receive a few goodies for getting it all organised early!

Start by arranging a date for your launch assembly

  • Book in with a Rockley staff member who will be happy to come and assist in person
  • Prepare your launch information letter outlining the trip details and payment schedule (we have sample letters to help)

 

On the Launch Day 

  • Gather together a good mix of excited, assembly-going pupils 
  • Add a keen teacher heading it up as Group Leader
  • Mix with a confident and experienced member of the Rockley Schools Team 
  • Dim the lights and on goes the video – watch while smiles appear!
  • As the excitement bubbles, questions are raised
  • Rockley Staff member will cover all of those questions and smooth any worries. The presentation will end on a high
  • Release the excited pupils with letters and leaflets to take home to parents
  • Don’t leave too long as the excitement may sink – keep a quick turnaround to get your deposits in (2 weeks is sufficient and consider pay days) and your mixture will continue to bubble 
  • Keep your Rockley staff member updated and work together as a team as the commitment comes in

And serve – a delicious combination of activity, excitement and challenge. And as you take the last bite, you’ll experience a lovely aftertaste and a real urge for more. We’ll see you next year then!

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
