Holiday Schemes

Keeping the laughter going.

Our holiday playschemes are open to all young people ages 8-12 and take place during the school holidays. It is an opportunity for young people to take part in a range of exciting and challenges activities including sports, arts and crafts, cooking, digital media and lots more.

Our professionally trained youth workers provide a supportive and safe environment for our young people to learn, play and have fun. 

When do the Holiday Playschemes take place?

Our Holiday Playscheme take place during school holidays (excluding weekends and bank holidays) from 10am - 3pm at The Write Time School, Warrington Road, Croydon, Duppas Hill, CR0 4BH.

It is important that you collect your child at 3pm as we have to do an intense deep clean of the building after the session has ended. Late collections could result in a fine being incurred. 

What is the cost?

It is £5.99 per child per day (costs include refreshments, however we require you to supply your child with a packed lunch). We do offer young people a hot meal on Fridays. Please do let us know if you would like to discuss any dietery requirements, intolerances and allergies.  

Water bottles are permitted but they must be labelled and kept with the child at all times.

How can you help?

Please do not send your child to the holiday playscheme if they are feeling unwell. Please do inform us if your child is unable to attend their booked session. For health and safety reasons we cannot look after coats and bags. 

How do we register?

Please complete our early registration form to book your child on to our holiday schemes. We recommend you book your place as early as possible as spaces are limited.

Bookings are non-refundableFor any enquiries please email:

And he images socially better since starting this summer scheme. He really enjoys it.’
