During the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we will continue to review the Government’s “Protective measures for holiday and after-school clubs, and other out-of-school settings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak” guidance and will adapt our internal processes as appropriate.
The typical Kids’ Club day includes a wide variety of activities for those children who have started Year 4 to Year 8 to enjoy. A free time Swimming session is a very popular part of each day’s activities. The other three main daily activity sessions are designed with varying interest and ability groups in mind and children can choose from a number of themed afternoon activities that take place both indoor and outdoor around Clifton College’s Sports Centre. Throughout our programme we promote self expression, confidence building and, of course, fun by offering as much choice as possible.
Lunch and healthy snacks are included in the daily price.

Swimming is available to children aged 6 and over. Please be aware our 25m indoor swimming pool has a depth ranging from 0.9m to 2.0m. It is not a walk in style leisure pool and entry/exit is via steps at each corner. If you require further information regarding our swimming sessions then please ask at time of booking. We have a very comprehensive swimming policy, further details of which are available on request.
Each child’s swimming ability is assessed by our staff members on an annual basis with tests being reset each September. This enables us to determine which areas of the swimming pool they can use. The information provided by parents is used as a guide only.
The swim tests/assessments include:
Beginner = 1 width of the swimming pool without putting their feet on the floor and showing no signs of distress.
Average = 4 widths of the swimming pool and 1 minute of treading water all without putting their feet on the floor and showing no signs of distress.
Good = 60 metre swim and 2 minutes of treading water all without putting their feet on the floor and showing no signs of distress.
Non-swimmers may enter the swimming pool only if they are wearing one of our swim jackets.
