End of term reward days

Although our activities have a massive amount of inherent learning, it is important to remember that they are extremely good FUN. This is why they also make a wonderful end-of-term reward day for both primary schools and secondary schools. 

Don’t just take our word for it…

100% of the profit generated by Bowles Learning & Development is donated to the Bowles Rocks Trust for the provision of educational programmes for young people

We feel the weekend has been particularly effective in developing teamwork and encouraging greater degrees of co-operation and communication amongst our new 6th formers. We have appreciated the high levels of skill and expertise of the Bowles team. The weekend has met our objectives well.

The ethics of Bowles also sat well with our core aims – we strive to be innovative leaders of change but with a sense of community responsibility and a desire to contribute in some way and with the charitable trust receiving all the profits from events like ours, we felt it was a small way in which we could make a difference. We had such an eventful programme that we are now planning future events with the team at Bowles!

Vale School

10/10 for educational value, with particular reference to the use of growth mindsets, plus the best food I have ever had in all my years of organising residential trips.

There is absolutely no doubt that I would actively suggest BOC as a venue for programmes for clients in the SE who did not wish to travel to Herefordshire or Devon or even overseas! Your infrastructure, flexibility and professionalism are head and shoulders above so many other activity centres you should be justifiably proud
