Holiday Clubs & Courses
We run two holiday courses a year: at the end of the Easter and Summer holidays. These courses are open only to children attending Crosfields and are run by our own staff.
Timings vary slightly from course to course but generally the mornings are spent developing sports skills for cricket and football whilst a wide variety of different activities is available for children who stay on in the afternoons.
Full information and booking forms for these courses is usually sent out several weeks before the end of the spring and summer terms.
Hobbies & Activities
Children are encouraged to participate in our busy hobbies and activities programme which runs during lunch breaks and after school.
The variety of hobbies, varies slightly from term to term as seasonal variations affect the sporting options, but there are always plenty of sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic options available.
