School adventure trips and class bonding

A residential activity trip could be the perfect way to get your class bonding and feeling excited and confident about the new year ahead.

School life comes with a whole load of challenges which many pupils may find daunting. Whether it’s joining a new school, moving up a year or changing teachers and classmates – a young person can find dealing with such significant emotional and intellectual changes very difficult.

Dealing with change

One way to cope with such transitions is by including outdoor adventure in to the curriculum at the start of a new academic year. Whether it’s a 2-day, 3-day or week-long trip in the UK or abroad, it’s a real opportunity for students to get to know each other and their teachers in a new environment which is away from the classroom. Without the pressure of school and with the benefits that come with being outdoors, students can make decisions, work together, push boundaries and build confidence. They will develop the ability to tackle the new and unfamiliar head on and if they succeed at this elsewhere then they can learn to really embrace these new challenges, and return to school with a real positive outlook, a can-do attitude and raring to face the school year ahead.

 

At Rockley we can offer bespoke trips that will fully engage your pupils. Our locations and types of activities are all selected so that you can get the very best out of your students and they return to school energised and full of enthusiasm ready for the new challenges that school life may bring.

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!
