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
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.

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 breaks in Year Eleven, Rock UK centres across the country are ideal for secondary schools.
College & University Trips
Whether it’s getting to know your fellow students on a fresher’s week away, you’re planning a Christian Union house party and need a venue, or you’re looking for somewhere to host your team building session for a group of trainee doctors or business students, we have a venue that will suit your needs.
You can choose an overnight residential stay or just come for the day. We have group accommodation for 6 to 234 people depending on the centre you choose and there are various sized meeting rooms available. Not forgetting over 40 instructor led activities to break up the day, including an excellent range of team building challenges for all ages.
Revision retreats can make an enormous difference to students
Rock UK centres provide the perfect venues for your revision retreats. Revision breaks are a great way of focusing students, encouraging strong study skills going forward and reducing stress at a time when students need it most.
Your students can spend time working in teacher led sessions, on group revision tasks as well as private study time. All this in the peace and tranquillity of our beautiful sites. At home students are surrounded by distractions: television, games consoles, computers and much more. Coming away to our sites for focused revision time can make an enormous difference to students and foster great study skills when they do return home. Combined with a schedule of active sessions students are rewarded for their hard work and encouraged to study harder. Not only does activity provide the perfect respite for a tired mind but also reduces stress.
Home schooling Trips
Outdoor adventure learning is an important part of every child’s development and at Rock UK we recognise this by offering group adventure trips to home school students. Our activity centres have group accommodation from 6 to 234 and this makes it possible for home school networks, of whatever size, to come together and benefit from outdoor education.
We offer over 40 instructed activities across our four nationwide centres and we’ll work with your home schooling network to tailor a programme ideally suited to your group’s individual needs.
