Holiday Club

School holiday options

For many of our children, the school day does not start and end in the classroom.

For working parents, it is important to know that children can be looked after and productively engaged in enjoyable activities before and after school, with the same high standard of safety and care that we provide throughout the school day.

Many of our children enjoy taking part in after-school sports or creative clubs.

We’ve broken our wraparound provision down into three categories: Breakfast Club, After School Activities and After School Care. In addition, the Henleaze Campus usually hosts a Holiday Club during the school holidays.

Breakfast club

For those that need to be dropped off before 8:45.


For children whose parents need to get to work early in the morning, we offer a Breakfast Club from 8:00am every day. This takes place in Henleaze Infant School. When you arrive on site from the Park Grove entrance, take the pathway to the left to head up to the Infant School entrance and sign children in there.

The Breakfast Club is staffed by employees of the Infant School. It offers pupils from Reception to Year 6 a light breakfast before engaging them in a free play session with crafts and games. Click here for full details.

At 8:45am, Breakfast Club staff escort the junior children to the junior school gates. They enter school along with the rest of their year group.

Parents must register with Breakfast Club by completing a Registration Form. Once registered, you can book regular days. To check availability for occasional extra days, send an email to

Breakfast Club is open to children who attend Henleaze Infant School and Henleaze Junior School. The cost is £5 per session.

After-School Activities

For children who love to play sport, keep active or be creative.


In addition to any extra-curricular clubs that may be offered by Henleaze Junior School staff, we work with our partners at Shine to offer a choice of sport and other activities every day.

All Shine activities are booked and paid for on the Henleaze Junior School page on their website. They must be booked in advance. Parents will need to create a user account. Clubs must be paid for when they are booked. In cases of financial hardship, parents may enquire at the school office about the possibility of financial support. We aim for all of our activities to be fully inclusive. If a child requires support to access the activity, parents are asked to contact Shine, who will make the necessary arrangements. In addition to the various sports and creative clubs, Shine offer a session called 'My Time': children can relax with a book or a game, play outside or chill in a classroom. For parents who need childcare, and children who do not fancy the more structured activities on offer each day of the week, this is a perfect choice.

Activities run from the end of the school day until 4:45pm. Children who are attending after school activities meet in the Dining Hall, where they are registered by Shine staff. At the end of the session, parents collect children from the gateway to the front lawn outside the Dining Hall.

Shine activities are led by qualified instructors, who are all fully DBS checked and trained in safeguarding and health and safety matters. Children can sign up for a single session, or for a term in advance.

Shine After School Activities are open to children who attend Henleaze Junior School.

Henleaze Infant School also work with Shine to offer activities for the younger children. These must be booked separately, on the Henleaze Infant School page on the Shine website.

After-school care

Childcare for working parents until 5:45 each day


Schools Out operates every day in Henleaze Infant School. Their playworkers collect children from the junior playground at the end of the schools day. Places must be booked directly with Schools Out.

If children wish to attend after school activities at Henleaze Junior School, they may still book a place at Schools Out and they will be collected from the junior school office when their activity finishes.

During the school holidays, we host a Holiday Club run by Schools Out Henleaze on our site, based either in the Infant School or in the Junior School. Details are published in our weekly newsletter, the HJS Update, which is sent out by email every Friday to our families.
