PE teacher Roddy Mackay has been operating multi sports courses and holiday clubs for children during the school holidays since 1993.

Sports School courses are run from a variety of fantastic venues which include Heaton Manor School,Jesmond Park West,Newcastle and St Aidans High School, Harrogate. The aim of Sports School is to provide multi sports activity courses and childcare for children between the ages of 5 and 14 years during the Easter and Summer School holidays.

Sport Schools courses are designed to provide fun and enjoyment regardless of age and ability within a wide range of sporting activities in a safe, friendly and controlled environment throughout the school holidays.

Sports School holiday clubs offer an outstanding level of childcare which is always highlighted by our annual visit from Ofsted

Sports School provision is well organised to meet the children’s needs and provide a good range of interesting and stimulating activities. Staff are regularly briefed about important issues to ensure children are well cared for. There is induction training for staff, at the beginning of the holiday programme, which informs them about safety, managing behaviour and organising activities.
