Holiday Club is for Derby Grammar School boys between the ages of 5 and 12 and provides care during every school holiday from 8am to 6pm.
We welcome siblings (boys or girls) to Holiday Club, as long as they fall within our age range. Siblings don’t have to be a Derby Grammar School pupil.
Holiday Club dates and booking information are issued to parents on a regular basis and places can be reserved right up until the Thursday before Holiday Club begins on the Monday.
Holiday Club activities
Every day is different in Holiday Club. As we are based at Derby Grammar School we can access the fabulous resources, equipment and spaces available across the school, so there’s never a dull moment!
The daily programme is planned in advance and includes everything from outside activities such as football and other outdoor games to indoor activities including crafts, cookery, model making, quizzes with prizes, creative worksheets, table top activities, movie afternoons, talent shows and much more!
Activities take into account the time of year and often follow a theme, for example, making Mothers’ day cards and an Easter bonnet parade.
