At Dobcroft, we endeavour to provide a broad and balanced curriculum both in the classroom and beyond. We are very fortunate to offer amazing residential opportunities to all year groups so that children can experience learning and excitement away from school. These gradually build in length through the course of a child’s time with us and offer outdoor and adventurous activities and learning opportunities as well as a lot of fun! They build essential skills and provide an opportunity for every child to develop their independence.
- Year 3 – Castleton residential (2 days and 1 night)
A focus on rocks and fossils to link with Geography and Science learning in school in the heart of the Peak District.
- Year 4 – The Oakes (2 days and 2 nights)
An RE focus close to home with lots of outdoor and adventurous activities to be enjoyed.
- Year 5 – Condover Hall (5 days and 4 nights)
An exciting residential a bit further away from home. Lots of fantastic activities on offer and it incorporates many areas of the curriculum.
Currently in Year 6 there is an option between a residential in the UK or a trip to Paris to practise the French skills that pupils have developed in their time at school. They are both exciting opportunities and provide perfect post-SATs excitement and enjoyment.
