UK School Residential and Day Trips

Residential trips can help school-age children to develop independence and bond with their peers and teachers in informal settings. They provide a wonderful opportunity for children to begin their journey as independent people with lives outside their homes.

Our UK multi-activity school trips are based at our flagship centre in Poole - Rockley Point and at our Poole Park centre. We offer a blend of challenging and rewarding activities that can be enjoyed residentially or on a day visit for primary school and secondary school pupils.

Check out our sample programmes below.

Rockley’s flagship centre is the ideal base for offering a range of geography and natural field self-led study residentials. The Jurassic stretch of coastline with its 185 million years of geological history makes it a popular location for geography fieldwork.

Day Trips

Our Poole Park centre is ideal for our daily sessions. With shallow and extremely safe activity areas, they offer the best introduction to watersports for school children. RYA certificated sessions are available in dinghy sailing or short taster and multi-activity sessions in sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking.

Andy Darch from Kings Park Academy explains the importanc of offering day trips outside the classroom; "The confidence that it’s given our children is really important to us. For some, they don’t necessarily find school easy, but they get such enjoyment and satisfaction out of it and are achieving real success. Honestly, three years ago we didn’t have anybody sailing, now they all want to do it! It’s given some of them a real sense of purpose in school, especially for those in their final year, of wanting to continue to learn a new skill and a desire to carry on at school."

The meal times are an important social aspect of the trip. At Rockley 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.
