When a teacher decides to run a trip for their school, it can be a daunting prospect. Being responsible for up to 100 pupils in another country can potentially be scary but it really doesn't have to be. Whether you are staying in the UK or going abroad, an inspection visit can make all the difference in alleviating any concerns you, the pupils or the parents may have. Immersing yourselves in the activities, talking to the staff and getting to know the Company you are booking with - how they operate and forming a good relationship with them will give you all the confidence you need to lead a trip.
When, as a group leader you book a trip with Rockley, you will not only receive an outstanding level of customer service but our Schools Team representative will take the time to understand your requirements and work around your needs and the needs of the pupils who will be coming on the trip. We understand that every teacher is not only going on a teacher inspection visit during their working day, but also during their time off which is why we make every effort to make the trip as informative, rewarding and enjoyable for you as possible.
An inspection visit does not only give you the opportunity to visit the centre they will be staying at – something that can’t possibly be expressed through a phone conversation or email but it will give you an understanding of how the trip will progress throughout the week, what the pupils will gain from the experience and how seriously we consider procedures including safety.
Group leaders will fly out to Bordeaux and over the three days will be taken to each of our three lakeside centres. During the stay, you will observe how the centre teams work, enjoy some watersports, feast upon delicious cuisine made fresh from the kitchen by our head chef and enjoy some evening games. All this is designed help you understand how your pupils will keep both mind and body active during their stay with Rockley.
Let's do it!
