Alisha joined Rockley in 2017 to study Level 3 BTEC Sport (Outdoor Adventure) from Queen Elizabeth’s School. Alisha achieved triple star distinction and gained the following qualifications: RYA Dinghy Instructor, RYA Powerboat level 2, In-house Kayaking, RYA First Aid, Start Windsurfing and Sailing with Spinnakers.

After graduating from Rockley College, Alisha went on work a season at Rockley’s Le Lac Mimizan centre in south west France where she continued her passion for watersports. Following her season, she completed a distance learning course which included biology and psychology - this allowed her to follow her dream of going to university and becoming a Physiotherapist. 

 

The grades Alisha achieved at Rockley gave her the qualifications she needed to pursue her career ambitions. Along with these work achievements, throughout her time on the course, she gained the confidence, knowledge and skills to teach young children as a fully qualified RYA Dinghy Instructor. 

“Rockley has given me so many life-changing experiences and opportunities. As well as learning to sail and windsurf I have made life-long friends and have shared some amazing, unforgettable memories.”

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!
