Holiday courses

In line with the Government’s announcement, we are delighted our activity courses will be going ahead this summer. Some changes may need to be implemented to ensure the safety of the children and adults taking part, and our staff running the courses, but further information will be sent to attendees in due course. We look forward to welcoming your child (or you) on one of the courses below and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

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 offer a wide range of courses to keep you or your child occupied throughout both the Easter and Summer holidays. There is something for everyone so don't delay, book your holiday course now. 

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

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.

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

Summer Junior Art Course (Ages 7-10) SOLD OUT

Monday 09 August 2021 - Wednesday 11 August 2021

The Bryanston Summer art course for ages seven to ten, will take place over three days, based in the school’s fantastic art department. The course is open to all abilities and will be a mixture of collaborative and individual mini projects, where hopefully by the end of the three days the pupils will have a lovely selection of handmade pieces to take home to their families. 

The type of art that the pupils will be creating will cover a wide variety of skills, so there is something that will engage everyone! This will range from working with clay and mono printing, to of course lots of drawing and painting. The course although primarily based in the art department, will also make the most of the surrounding countryside, and, weather permitting, the pupils will also spend an afternoon on the River Stour that runs right through the Bryanston grounds, as well as drawing walks that will make the most of the British sunshine! 

Throughout the duration of the course, the pupils will benefit from group learning sessions, as well as individual help from the teachers. This will help them to build up their confidence and ability as budding artists, with the variety of projects taken over the three days allowing for the pupils to explore new avenues of art that they may not have come across previously.
