Warwick Holiday Scheme

The Holiday Scheme is open to school children aged 5 - 14 years, who may be children and dependants of University staff and students, partner organisations on campus and the University of Warwick Science Park and children attending local schools in Coventry and Warwickshire.

What will the programme be like?

The aim of the Holiday Scheme is to offer an inspiring range of educational, cultural and sporting activities to challenge, entertain and enthuse; develop children's knowledge and skills and utilise the fantastic resources available on campus. The diverse programme will contain a balance of physical and creative/intellectual activities every day, as well as plenty of time for both structured, instructor-led sessions and free play. The programme includes a wide range of experiences - from environment/nature-related activities outdoors and a range of sports and games (including coach-led sessions such as tennis, cardio fitness, etc) to fun academic related sessions, performance/theatre/visual arts workshops, dance and music workshops, art, design and crafts, language sessions, and much more.
