Holiday Club

Our action-packed Holiday Club keeps children from Bristol entertained with a variety of activities and exciting day trips. We offer full or half-day care for children aged 3-14 years, helping busy families during half-term and the summer break.

Each week, Holiday Club and Taningua club have a different theme so new experiences can be had – such as Bollywood, Vintage Sports, Circus Skills, and Japanese Pop Culture.

Our ethos

At Sparks, we believe the school holidays should be about meeting new people, learning new skills, being active and, most importantly, having bundles of fun!

We offer a safe environment where your children can play freely inside and out, with a variety of optional planned activities to choose from each day.

Holiday Club takes place during February and October half terms, Easter and summer school holidays, and as of Summer 2018, is held at Fairlawn School, Fairlawn Road, Bristol, BS6 5JL. Please note we are closed during the May and Christmas holidays.

We welcome children from East and Central Bristol, and provide a great environment for making new friends.
