Your campus is on the beach

All our classroom lectures and water-based practical teaching take place at our Rockley Point campus on the beach! With excellent facilities and equipment and direct access to the beach, this truly is a unique college environment.

A world of opportunities

Our courses prepare you for an exciting future. So, whether you decide to progress to university or go on to pursue a career in the outdoor, leisure or sport industry you will be confident that the skills and knowledge you have acquired with us will help get you there.

Free training worth up to £4000

Our FREE optional training programme allows you to up-skill and work towards a range of National Governing Body and in-house qualifications in both water and land based activities.

Variety of Sports

Whether you love sports on the water, on land or on the slopes - we've got it covered! Thanks to our fantastic range of locations, our excellent facilities and the standard of training we provide, you will have the opportunity to develop skills in a sport you already love as well as developing new passions.

Real Life Learning

Everything we do at Rockley is based on real life situations. You will be immersed in a work environment allowing you to further develop your understanding of the outdoor industry. This type of practical learning perfectly compliments our classroom teaching.

We love trips

We believe in applying learning and we do this by getting on the water, getting outside and by doing. Visits include: Our sister site - Buddens Activity Centre in the Purbecks, surf weekend to Devon, walking expeditions and a ski trip.

Work Experience

We strongly believe in our students learning through doing and they can work alongside our instructors throughout the course. All students also complete a period of work experience in the summer term with placements across our three UK centres.


You won’t be in every day and when you are, you’ll be in for a full day rather than needing to travel in for one lesson here and there. This helps you manage your time more effectively at home to complete your coursework as well as saving you money on travel.

From attending on the initial Open Day to consistent communication since my son started there last month. The staff have been brilliant, not only with making my son feel welcome and settled, but also in keeping us as parents informed. We're really impressed so far!”
