Holiday Courses at Clifton College
We are delighted to offer an extensive programme of exciting, challenging and fun courses providing a chance to try something new or enjoy a regular favourite.
We feel it is important to provide some extra courses for the 5–7 year olds in order to follow our philosophy of personal development, learning and fun and so we generally offer half day courses in the main holidays that are designed as ‘tasters’ to give younger children an introduction to the focus of individual activities.
For 8-13 year old children we offer a wide range of activity courses. Grouped under headings of Adventure, Creative and Sport, each holiday offers a differing range of opportunities all led by professional Tutors, Coaches and Instructors.
Please note that all of these courses have limited numbers so early booking is recommended. Appropriate clothing and footwear should be worn for each course. Should you have any questions, queries, or require any further information then please contact our Holiday Club Administrator at the time of booking. Courses will register at the same Holiday Club bases unless advised otherwise on the individual course entry. Course leaders will aim to call registers from 9.45am when they will start to gather their groups together. All courses will start at 10.00am and conclude at 4.00pm unless otherwise stated.

Our popular action packed adventure courses always offer great opportunities to try a new challenge or expand existing interests and skills. Our Outdoor Activity Centre at Clifton College Sports Ground, Abbots Leigh offers not only a comprehensive range of courses but is also available throughout the year for individuals, families and birthday party groups to come along and enjoy an adventurous challenge in the great outdoors.
Children should bring appropriate clothing and wet weather gear.
Please note that all of these courses take place off-site with children travelling by Clifton College minibus and there may therefore be occasions when return to the Registration Point is slightly later than planned as journey times are traffic dependent. By booking any of these courses, you are consenting to your child travelling to and from the activity venue by minibus.
Our creative courses have grown enormously in popularity, mainly due to the expert leadership and innovative course content from our tutors. All of these courses are designed for children and young people to develop existing skills and learn some new ones. As ever, the Cookery and Arts & Crafts courses will produce many masterpieces to take home. All of the courses are open to boys and girls of all abilities aged 8–13 years.
We suggest that comfortable, older clothes are worn for these courses as things can sometimes get quite messy.
Sports Academy Courses
All Sports Academy courses are open to both girls and boys of all ability levels aged 8–13 years and are run by professionally qualified coaches. Making full use of Clifton College’s top quality sporting facilities, coaches will use tried and tested methods and up to the minute training techniques with particular attention to fun, and will share their first hand experiences to improve skills, knowledge and game play.
Appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn for all Sports Academy courses. Spare footwear and clothing is recommended for all outdoor courses. Equipment can be provided but players are welcome to bring their own.
