UK School Residential and Day Trips

Activity + Adventure = Healthy Lifestyles

Our UK multi-activity school trips are based at our flagship centre in Poole, Dorset and at our new centre at Bartley Reservoir near Birmingham.

We offer a blend of challenging and rewarding activities that can be enjoyed residentially or on a day visit Primary School and Secondary School pupils.

This is our original centre, founded in 1976, based in beautiful Poole harbour, Europe's largest natural harbour. The centre uses some of the UK's safest and most idyllic sailing waters. Close to the busy port of Poole and the ancient Saxon walled town of Wareham, Rockley Point is the gateway to picturesque and historic Dorset. The centre benefits from the facilities of the adjacent Holiday Park and provides a comfortable and rewarding activity holiday.

Rockley Point is possibly the most highly regarded sailing centre in Britain. This reputation, of which we are very proud, has been earned over the years by the dedication, hard work and expertise of our members of staff.

Who is Rockley for?

Are you a school group looking for an actvity adventure or a beginner wanting to learn how to sail? Do you love sailing and want to make it a career or are you looking for a residential week away for your child? At Rockley Point we do it all. We cater for many family, individual bookings and school and groups activity trips. Rockley Point probably trains more Dinghy Instructors than any other centre in the UK and we provide staff training for companies such as Neilson, Sunsail and Center Parcs as well as Instructor training and qualifications for Local Authority centres and many UK and International Sailing Clubs.

Whilst running all of our Watersports and Academy courses, Rockley Point also welcomes over 1000 pupils and their teachers from schools and groups all over Europe for an action packed residential activity trip.
