Kids' Club (8-13 year olds)

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 Sports Centre. Throughout our programme we promote self-expression, confidence building and, of course, fun by offering as much choice as possible.

Juniors Holiday Club (5-7 year olds)

We believe it is important that children are able to pursue interests and develop skills through a range of activities and opportunities.
