Holiday Club at The Windmills Junior School

Boredom-busting fun and activities for all primary ages!

Our adventure-filled holiday club is located at The Windmills Junior School in Hassocks.

It runs every holiday, is open to all primary-aged children (ages 4-11), no matter what school they attend, and allows them to make the most of their school break.

Something for Everyone

  • Each holiday club is themed, for example, Epic Adventures, Science Fiction Fun, and Let’s Go Round The World – check out our latest news page to see what we have planned next!
  • There is always a wide range of planned activities and workshops, for the children to enjoy each day, like science and STEM games, baking, sports and games, craft and making, and performance activities. It’s a no-pressure environment, so they can choose to join in or create their own play from the many resources we have on offer
  • In the learning café, we explore different themed workshops or classes, such as arts and crafts like upcycling, and other making projects

  • In the main hall, we do wide group games like ‘Capture the Flag’, team treasure hunts and more

  • The outside play areas and backfield are for running around, sports tournaments like football and rounders, water fights, and skill-based challenges

  • Plus there’s the usual painting, crafting, junk modelling, den making, dressing up, Lego building, football, and sports – and of course, children can come up with their own play (which is the BEST kind of play)!

Don’t forget..

  • Packed Lunch

  • Water bottle

  • Wellies & Waterproofs

  • Sun Hat

Things to Bring

Your child will need to bring a water bottle that they can refill throughout the day, and a substantial packed lunch with a cool pack to keep it fresh.

Please remember to pack them off with a sun hat if it’s hot or wellies and waterproofs if it’s rainy. Whatever the weather the children love to play outside!

Please apply sun cream to your child/ children at home before they come to holiday club, ideally using an 8-hour duration cream.
