School Residential Trips to France 

Our France multi-activity residential trips offer a unique adventure experience based at our Bombannes centre in south west France. Located near Lacanau, Bombannes is situated on the shores of Lac d’Hourtin in the Landes Forest. Lac d'Hourtin is the largest natural lake in France and one of the great lakes of Médoc. This centre has been specifically selected for the capacity to offer a range of fantastic activities on and off the water and enhance both the pupil and group leader adventure experience. 

We believe we offer a 'Brilliant Residential' which offers a safe, secure and happy setting for young people to experience a trip away from home. We offer diverse outdoor learning experiences which empower young people to take on new challenges and to succeed outside the classroom whilst having a whole load of fun! It's a wonderful opportunity for young people to enjoy their journey as independent people with lives outside their homes.

A Residential Adventure

Residential activity trips provide an opportunity to gain experience of living away from home and the chance to develop key personal qualities such as self-reliance and increased independence.

A trip with Rockley means getting the most out of outdoor living, with ‘alfresco’ meals, plenty of fresh air, space and freedom to relax. Pupils are grouped in their accommodation according to their age and sex. Staff, pupils, and accompanying adults all eat together in our communal area, which provides an ideal opportunity to socialise.

Bombannes is uniquely arranged where there is a large tented area which can be split into villages. The chalet-style tents, which sleep, on average, six children, each have electric lights, metal frame beds and mattresses.

Inspiring Healthier Lives

Healthy eating contributes significantly to the lives of children and young people. At Rockley, we ensure your pupils receive three healthy, balanced meals a day.

All our food is prepared on-site by the UCPA catering staff. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced giving each child the opportunity to taste a range of nutritional food as well as some local specialities! All our guests get provided with their essential five-a-day. At Rockley Adventure the only food choice is a healthy choice.

The alfresco dining area makes a positive contribution to the dining experience. The meal times are an important social aspect of the trip. At Rockley Adventure we ensure there is adequate time available to eat their meal and chat about the activities and learning that the children have experienced in the day.
