Our Think Big water sports residential with the UK Sailing Academy (UKSA)
Can you hear that? Water lapping at boats, sails flapping in the breeze and excitement building for our Think Big residential with the UKSA!
This year, our Year 5 pupils will be embarking upon an amazing adventure. Once again, E-ACT is offering every Year 5 pupil the opportunity to take part in UKSA’s residential water sports programme on the Isle of Wight, without charge to their families.
Last year’s trip was a huge success, with our pupils getting to visit a different part of the world, try something new and build on important life skills.
This year’s trip will take place from Friday 1st May – return Sunday 3rd May.
Set on the beautiful Isle of Wight, UKSA’s waterfront base gives pupils access to a range of exciting activities with qualified instructors.
Over the course of their three-day residential trip, our pupils will improve their confidence in the water as they try out activities like kayaking, paddle-boarding, dinghy sailing and keel boating. As well as exciting water sports, they will also get to take part in other activities like crabbing or archery by the sea with their classmates.
UKSA has over 30 years’ experience in educating and training young people. As the leading provider of sailing and watersports activities in the UK, UKSA is passionate about getting young people out in the great outdoors to learn new skills whilst enjoying an active school break.
