Our Centres - What we Offer

We have two centres in Dorset located in beautiful Poole Harbour and on Poole Park Lake and one in the West Midlands in the Bartley Green area of Birmingham.

Our flagship centre at Rockley Point offers both day and residential experiences. With unrivalled levels of instructor expertise, students can either enjoy a multi activity adventure which can include sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding or gain RYA certificates in dinghy sailing.

With a well appointed beach and a lovely beach side cafe, it's the perfect location to see your pupils thrive outside the classroom.

Our Poole Park and Bartley centres are 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.

A Residential Adventure

Of the many places in the UK for watersports, Poole Harbour offers possibly the safest and most idyllic location, offering a secure and happy setting for children to experience a residential trip away from home. With space for adventure, we offer diverse and challenging experiences which will inspire and excite your pupils.

Residential trips can help children of all ages 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 own homes. A residential week with Rockley Adventure provides valuable opportinities for promoting teamwork, social skills and communication skills. Personal achievement combined with many new experiences in such a unique environment can be very rewarding and boost self-esteem and confidence.

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.

For those staying with us at Rockley Point, all our food is prepared on-site at the Rockley Lodge by our own catering staff. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced giving each child all the energy they need to enjoy their action-packed adventure. All our guests get provided with their essential five-a-day - with us, the only food choice is a healthy choice.

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.
