Residential & Non-Residential Trips for Schools & Groups

All our activities are mapped out to our Skills for Life framework. Outcomes and insights are shared, measuring impact of your experience.

More than a school trip

Our tailor made programmes are designed to build confidence and encourage teamwork using watersports and the great outdoors as a catalyst for positive outcomes. Visits can also be tailored to include RYA and BC qualifications. We have been delivering successful programmes to schools and groups for over 35 years and our expert team can guide you through the whole process, from the initial enquiry to saying a fond farewell at the end of your trip.

Flexible options to suit you

We offer a full range of fun-packed options to suit all needs, so whether you would like to visit for a day, a week or want UKSA to simply be a base for exploring the Isle of Wight, we have something to suit everyone.

For over 30 years we have been offering people of all ages and abilities a fun, safe and engaging experience at UKSA. Our team are ready to discuss your individual school journey requirements and work with you to create the right programme for your group.



We wanted the children to receive a unique experience that would encapsulate the notion of a broad and balanced curriculum. It is increasingly difficult to find opportunities that children may not have already experienced, but UKSA gave them adventures and challenges that they had never had before. The environment was very safe and secure which is essential when you are trying to organise a residential visit.
