Juniors Holiday Club
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have had to make the difficult decision to close our Christmas Holiday Club to non-Clifton members.
We realise this news may cause disappointment and leave you having to find additional provision for your children during the Christmas holidays. We have, however, only made this decision with the wellbeing of all Holiday Club families as well as the Clifton College community and the staff who work within it as a priority.
We sincerely hope that next year, we will be able to welcome you and your family back to Holiday Club once again, but in the meantime, we hope you and your children stay safe and well during the rest of their school term and you all have a happy Christmas holiday.
Juniors Holiday Club activities are specifically designed for children in Reception to Year 3, giving the space and time for all of the children to enjoy age appropriate activities, art and free play throughout the day. We utilise The College’s fantastic facilities including Butcombe Playground, tandem trikes and balance bikes, the indoor Sports Hall and Forest School Garden. Our activities are all led by experienced staff with the emphasis 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.
During the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we will be maintaining child groups in a “bubble” structure to ensure the safety of both the children and our staff. We continue to review the Government’s “Out of School Childcare” guidance and will adapt our internal processes as appropriate.
