Clifton College Easter Holiday Clubs & Activity Courses for Children & Young People

This Easter there will be some exciting Holiday Club and Activity Courses at Clifton College, offering 3-13 year olds lots of fun and varied activities.

The holiday clubs and activity courses will take place from Monday to Friday throughout the Easter holidays from Monday 1st April to Tuesday 23rd April.

Clifton College Holiday Clubs and Activity Courses offer an extensive range of diverse, exciting and fun days. With over 20 years experience in running holiday programmes, they have developed a huge range of age specific activities for children and teens.

All holiday clubs take place from 10am – 4pm. However, Clifton College offers an early service (8 – 10am) and a late service (4 – 6pm) for all age groups which is included in the price.

Holiday Clubs
The Holiday Club sessions consist of three groups: Minis (3-4 years), Juniors (5-7 years) and Kids’ Club (8-13 years).

Each session is run by professionally trained, experienced and qualified staff who promote personal development, interaction with others and lots of fun!

The daily programmes consist of a mix of indoor and outdoor play opportunities, structured organised games and activities as well as free play and optional experiences utilising one of the best environments in Bristol.

Minis Holiday Club:
Minis Holiday Club is a service registered for 3–4 year old children which is based in Clifton College Nursery. This provides a stimulating and creative environment for young children during the holidays. Qualified and experienced staff will support children to engage in age-appropriate activities with particular attention paid to personal development, interaction with others and, most importantly, fun!

Juniors Holiday Club:
Juniors Holiday Club activities are designed especially for 5-7 year-olds. 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. Juniors must bring a packed lunch each day.

  • Early Play from 8.00am and Stay & Play until 6.00pm included at no extra charge.

Kids’ Club:
The typical Kids’ Club day includes a wide variety of activities that 8–13s enjoy. A freetime Swimming session is a very popular part of each morning’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.

The afternoon sessions will be based at the Outdoor Activity Centre and children will have a chance to have a go at various outdoor adventure activities. Please note there will be no swimming pool sessions but a natural emphasis on inclusive games and physical activities for all children as we will have limited options for some of the more creative sessions that we usually offer.
