Holiday Activity Clubs

Holiday Activities

We run a selection of holiday activities for children aged from 5 to 13 years. Our courses don’t just provide childcare, they also offer an educational experience and the chance to try something new.

Coaching and Facilities

All of our coaches and course tutors have vast experience and are fully qualified in their respective fields. They are passionate about passing on their expertise, which leads to hugely beneficial, valuable and ultimately engaging courses.

The extensive facilities we have available at Highfield and Brookham enable us to offer a great variety of courses to suit all children. These courses vary in length from one day of fun and creativity to two to four days for those who really want to get stuck in.

Courses

We like to offer a wide variety of courses each year in which children leave having learnt a new skill or sport, improved their skills or have a tangible momento to take home to show and enjoy with their families. For sporty children, we have tennis, swimming and multi-sports. But not everyone lives for trainers and tracksuits, so for children with a more creative streak there are terrific courses such as cookery, photography and science. And for those who like a bit of everything, our multi-activities course does exactly what it says on the tin!
