Are you looking for fun, educational and active school trip ideas?

Why not try an outdoor adventure at one of our UK activity centres? Our outdoor learning activities are perfect for primary, secondary, home schooling, college and university residential trips. We’ve been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge which ensures our curriculum-based activities meet your learning objectives.

Whithaugh Park

Whithaugh Park residential centre is situated in the unspoilt landscape of the Scottish Borders countryside and shares its surroundings with forests and rivers. The centre is a popular choice for group accommodation, outdoor activities and mountain biking. Equipped with a stunning bike skills course, you’ll also find one of the 7stanes world class mountain bike trails running right next to the centre.

Just 40 minutes’ drive from the M6, Whithaugh Park has a wealth of natural adventure resources right on the doorstep and is perfect for great days out in Scotland,  school trips.

Primary School Trips

At Rock UK we focus on really making a difference to every child that visits us. Rather than numbers through the door, our goal is to provide quality educational school trips and memories that last a lifetime.

Whether you are bringing Year One children for a taster one night adventure or your Year Six class on an action packed week away, we work closely with you to tailor all outdoor learning activities to be age appropriate.

For many children this is the first significant time they’ve spent away from home, but by the end of their school residential adventure trip their confidence will have grown massively.

Our instructors are really good at working with young children and helping them overcome fears and challenges to bring out a completely different side, which teachers may not have seen before.

We have a number of great ways to help you spend your Sports Premium including activity days and weekly courses.

Secondary School Trips

We know that it is important to get students out of their comfort zones. At Rock UK we tailor secondary school trips to include challenging outdoor education activities which help boost self-esteem.

A visit to one of our activity centres can cover many areas of the curriculum through outdoor learning including; PHSE, SMSC, maths, geography, science, RE and many more. Together we will tailor your experience to meet your learning outcomes, whether you come for a day visit or stay for a full week. Our aim is that students return to the classroom instilled with a sense of achievement and empowered to want to achieve more with a new appreciation for learning.

From team building fresher trips in Year Seven to exam Revision Retreats in Year Eleven, Rock UK centres across the country are ideal for secondary schools. View the Rock UK Schools Brochure
