We are passionate about the impact of outdoor learning on young people and about supporting young people to achieve their potential

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

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.

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!

Our Lady of Sion

Just had the most amazing week with 28 incredible, little people… Taken away as children, returning as young adults. Thank you Bowles Outdoor Centre – you are amazing people, educating in an amazing place – you facilitated some great memories and life changing moments; many engraved on the heart forever – Teacher bursting with total pride 😊 Well done Our Lady of Sion Junior Year 6 – you did yourselves and us proud xxx

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 great thing about Bowles is that it offers an outstanding opportunity to explore learning in an exciting, yet comfortable, environment. The facilitation is excellent and the food is fabulous! Through working with Bowles we are able to provide the opportunity for leaders in our business to explore the impact they have on others and practise the learning in a challenging and safe environment. We really get results!

The whole staff are SO good with the children. They gain so much from the experience. Thanks to the whole team, cleaners, cooks and office staff that make the Bowles experience so good for everyone.
