Let their aspirations soar

Residential school trips on the Isle of Wight

Do you feel that your students would benefit from on-the-water activities such as sailing, paddleboarding and kayaking? Or from land-based adventures? We tailor a bespoke programme of activities to suit your school’s specific objectives, ages and abilities.

  • A chill-out area for the children.
  • All wetsuits, buoyancy aids, safety helmets and other kit required for activities.
  • A team of expert instructors.
