Waverley School Holiday Club 

Waverley School Holiday Club offers peace of mind for parents and plenty of fun for children during schools holidays!


Key Details

  • Open to children in Reception -11 years.
  • For Waverley and non-Waverley School pupils.
  • Our club is OFSTED registered.
  • All meals and snacks are provided throughout the day. Our hot lunch is freshly cooked on-site each day.
  • Available up to 5 days a week, 7.30am-6pm (flexible drop-off and pick-up times).
  • Early-bird booking discounts, sibling discounts and Waverley pupil discounts available.
  • Based at Waverley School, we benefit from the grounds and facilities of the school.



Our main emphasis is offering children the chance to have fun, relax and try new activities. We are also keen to ensure that there is a clear differentiation between holiday club and the school term, enabling children to unwind, relax and recharge batteries ready for the next school term.

'Choice' is therefore at the heart of everything we do at holiday club. Throughout the week, we offer a range of carefully planned, adult-led activities providing a balance of artistic, creative and sporting opportunities. Children are encouraged to participate in the planned activities but can choose to take part in any other free-choice activity if they wish - the only activity children must take part in is eating lunch!

Every week has a different theme, for example cooking, sports, animals or crafts. Every day there are adult led activities around these themes as well as free choice activities. 

Our activities include but are not limited to:

  • Parties
  • Treasure hunts
  • Board games - some more messy than others!
  • Football
  • Dodge ball
  • Forest School (see below)
  • Rounders
  • Cooking
  • Daily sports challenges
  • Crafts such as making pom-poms
  • Art 
  • Sewing

Forest School

Waverley's Forest School is a popular and successful part of the Waverley timetable during term time and After School Club. It gives children a chance to unwind, understand and appreciate the outdoors and also gives them an alternative perspective to learning, team building and personal development.

Due to its popularity, we now have Forest School available on selected weeks during Waverley Holiday Club. The children go out between 9.30am and midday with our qualified Forest School Leaders. Some days they also cook their lunch outside! Forest School includes a range of activities such as den building, pond life, bird watching, whittling and crafts using natural materials.

Forest School is available for groups of up to 12 children who are in Year 1 and above.*

What's Provided At Holiday Club

We provide all snacks for mid-morning and mid-afternoon, as well as a hot lunch which is freshly cooked on-site (2 options available including vegetarian), and a tea at 4.45pm. (Please note that the tea is not designed to replace a main evening meal).

What to Bring

We provide all food and equipment. All children need to bring each day in a rucksack is:

  • Water bottle
  • Jumper/sweatshirt
  • Coat
  • Hat and gloves in winter

Please ensure these are named.

If children need any other specific items for Forest School, you will be notified separately.
