As part of the Grange Guarantee we are committed to offering every child the chance to experience at least one residential during their time at the school.
Currently we offer our Year 3 and Year 4 children the chance to attend The Alex Rider Spy School.
During this residential experience, our children, or 'agents' as they are referred to for the duration of the camp, will be put through their paces as they hone their skills at a variety of action-packed, adrenaline-fuelled activities, as well as a number of spy skills unique to our YHA Alex Rider Classified Mission.
Agents will be encouraged to climb, jump, leap, and step forward into new challenges as they gain new skills, build confidence and enjoy an all-encompassing learning experience. Abseil or climb on ‘real’ rock, learn essential field craft skills, canoe or raft across lakes, design new spy gadgets, crack the codes and hunt down the double agents.
We also offer our Year 5 and Year 6 children the opportunity to go to Govillon Learning & Activity Centre in Wales for one week . Here they are actively encouraged to challenge themselves in a range of outdoor and adventourous activities such as Gorge Walking, Caving, Rock Climbing, Bush Walking and much more.
The benefits for each child of attending these residentials are:
● Develop an inner confidence
● Personal achievement
● Develop self esteem
● Develop social skills
● Develop team building skills
● Experience new / exciting activities
● Learn respect for others
