Granby Primary School

Residential Education Year 6


Year 6

In Year 6 children have the opportunity to go to a purpose built residential centre in Derbyshire, called Mount Cook. Check out their website at

We do this at the start of Year 6 to unite the year group as a team and allow relationships with Year 6 staff to build quickly at the start of an important year for the children and to build independence skills and confidence.

During the week the children have the chance to enjoy the nature surrounding them in the Derbyshire countryside including canoeing, rock climbing, archery, a high ropes course, rocket building and team building challenges. There will also be shlter building, hiking and a campfire evening.

Pupils love the green space and are up early to run around the large grounds, as they play football, cricket, rounders, basketball and enjoy the freedom of a huge field. Pupils love our week away and it is most definitely the highlight of the year for all of us!
