Holiday Courses


The safety and security of Bryanston staff, students and our audience is of paramount importance and we take this responsibility very seriously. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to cancel the majority of our Summer holiday courses. However, we are still planning to run our equestrian courses over the Summer season.

Updates on our Easter and Summer courses 2021 coming soon, so please check back for further details.

The aim of our holiday courses is to provide a combination of focus and fun so that your child can enjoy themselves, make new friends, and at the same time improve their individual sporting talents.

Bryanston's 400 acres are an impressive setting for the sports courses and include extensive playing fields bordered by the river Stour. The new sports hall provides excellent facilities. Overall the grounds, combined with the superb indoor and outdoor facilities Bryanston has to offer, provides the perfect environment for participants to focus on developing their skills and enjoy their sport. 

We now accept Childcare vouchers from certain providers for our courses. For further information, please contact us using the link below:

If you have any questions, please contact Sam Tonks and Cyril Hawes on 01258 484677.

Important information 

Safety and Supervision
The safety of the children is of paramount importance.  All coaches have professional coaching qualifications.  Coaching will be in groups small enough to ensure individual attention but large enough to enable the children to practise unit skills.  All other physical activities will be supervised by appropriately qualified staff.  When not being coached, the children will be in the care of experienced staff who will look after all aspects of welfare and enjoyment as well as providing a sympathetic ear when required.

Meals and Refreshments

All meals will be provided in the Dining Hall where there is a variety of healthy options, both hot and cold, including a salad bar. Snacks and drinks can be purchased from our Café. There will be refreshments breaks between coaching sessions. All players are asked to bring a water bottle with them.

In addition to the high level of coaching the children are also given the opportunity to participate in other activities.  This not only gives them the chance to experience a range of pursuits but also provides a break from the main sport interest.Activities may include kayaking on the river, climbing on our superb purpose-built climbing tower, squash, swimming and badminton.

Dress Code and Equipment
A full kit list for each sport will be provided prior to the start of the course.  Suitable attire for each course will need to be worn with children bringing their own cricket bat, tennis racket, hockey stick as appropriate.  For the riding course participants need to have their own horse/pony.


Easter Dance Course (Ages 8-12)


What can you expect over the four days?

The course is designed for all abilities to take part in a variety of dance workshops throughout the four days in order to achieve a short performance for family and friends on the Friday afternoon based on the popular 2017 film, The Greatest Showman!

While moving to the enjoyable soundtrack, the dancers will cover many styles such as; commercial, jazz, street, lyrical and contemporary. The pupils will spend time together working on large musical numbers as well as working closely together in small groups. They will get the opportunity to improve their knowledge and dance skills from two Bryanston dance teachers, as well as a chance to be creative and contribute to the show themselves.

Participants will spend the majority of time in the new state of the art sports centre, which has a beautiful dance studio with sprung floors and full-length mirrors. The pupils will then get the opportunity to perform in a 600-seat theatre with lights and costumes to make their Greatest Showman performance come to life!

“The show must go on.”
