Connor Barnard joined Rockley in 2017 to study Level 3 BTEC Sport Outdoor Adventure from Winton and Glenmoor. He achieved a DMM and gained the following qualifications: RYA Dinghy Instructor and RYA Powerboat Level 2.

After leaving Rockley, Connor went on to study Outdoor Adventure Education at Marjon University and is really enjoying learning new skills in Outdoor Adventure and exploring the cliffs in Spain. Alongside university, Connor has taken up a career as a Mariner with the British Army. 

“After studying at Rockley, life has been full of amazing opportunities and life experiences. Rockley has helped me gain the confidence I have needed to tackle new things and pursue new opportunities. It has motivated me to gain further qualifications and has also made me want to travel the world more. 

To future students I would say tackle everything with 100% confidence, even If you are nervous, it could potentially open many doors.”

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!
