Juniors Holiday Club
Juniors Holiday Club activities are designed specifically for Reception to Year 3. Swimming is an important and enjoyable part of each daily programme for the 6 and 7-year-olds. The 5-year-olds have their own ‘Fantastic 5s’ activity programme whilst the older children swim and along with other activities, all led by experienced staff, the emphasis is on promoting individual development and, of course, fun. We believe it is important that children are able to pursue interests and develop skills through a range of activities and opportunities.
Lunch in the dining hall is now included in the daily cost although children can still bring their own packed lunch if required.
We are introducing a change to the Holiday Club age settings. As of February 2020, we are aligning with school year groups. We have received many requests for this to happen and appreciate the benefits of children being able to stay together with their school friends and to make the transition between age settings smoother, so children will now move up each September, the same as in schools.
