Located in the centre of Poole on the shores of the UK's largest inland saltwater lake, Rockley's Poole Park centre is based in a purpose-built boathouse. Your students can be on the water within minutes of arriving on-site! Poole Park offers the ideal environment for school-aged pupils to experience watersports either for the first time or for short taster sessions.
Rockley at Poole Park specialises in introductory sailing, paddleboarding, kayaking and raft building, enabling students and individuals to work towards various qualifications.
This centre is especially suitable for local school groups that require activity sessions on a full day, half-day or short session basis. The emphasis here is on participation for all our local schools, therefore making our short sessions exceptionally good value.
