Welcome to Rockley Education, the part of the business that focuses on educating 16 - 19 year olds and the place where your sixth form adventure really starts!
Our sixth form courses are thriving with over 100 full time learners each year choosing to study with us. We recognise that our students choose us as they want something different and our unique Outdoor Adventure courses at Level 2 and Level 3, offer students a truly vocational course which embeds works experience and extra qualifications. These courses allow our learners to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to succeed not only at sixth form but in life, with direct skills and qualifications for a job and employment and also the entry requirements to progress on to university.

Our Education centre is based at Rockley Point in Poole and attracts students from Hampshire and Dorset with students travelling from far and wide across the counties. Served by Hamworthy train station, we attract students from a large catchment area with students travelling from Weymouth, Dorchester, Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Southampton and Winchester to access our truly unique courses and benefit from our free instructors training programme included as part of our sixth form courses.
We have been offering sixth form courses and specifically Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport since 2009. These courses were established with the aim of increasing opportunities for school leavers in Poole to get involved with Rockley and to train as a Watersports Instructor whilst also completing a sixth form course. As a company that employs over 200 seasonal staff each year to work across our centres in France and the UK, and our sixth form courses soon become the perfect answer for finding new staff to join #TeamRockley each year. As a very successful staff training programme, we’ve not looked back and since starting, we have increased the sixth form courses available and opportunities each year.
Our Education team includes 15 experienced and dedicated staff who are focused on helping every student become the best that they can be and help them progress in their future in Sport and Outdoor Adventure. Our students benefit from a wide range of optional extras on top of their chosen vocational course which helps them progress to higher education, employment or training. With students working all over the world in watersports or studying at University we are really proud of the courses we offer and would welcome the opportunity to explain to you what your learner journey could look like at one of our open days.
