The Year 1 to 6 holiday club offers a wide range of exciting and new activities, focusing on engaging children in a fun and safe environment. Our activities are planned to enhance new skills, encourage inclusion, team work and strategic thinking. Children and parents can expect a number of exciting multi-activities such as:

A new addition to holiday club, groups will be taken to our cookery classroom and taught the skills to make desserts and decorate them! We cater to all allergies and dietary requirements to ensure no child missing out, so please make sure you fill any relevant information during booking.
