What They Say

Set out below is some of the feedback our customers have sent us:

I hadn’t used sports school before and my children loved every day that they attended, the staff are fantastic and level of care is second to none. Both my boys aged 7 and 13 enjoyed receiving badges and certificates in trampolining and gymnastics.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for this week. Albert is never keen on holiday camps and kids clubs but he has to go whilst I’m working. I asked him last night if he had enjoyed his week and he said he really enjoyed it – which is amazing for him to show any enthusiasm! Historically he’s gone to another camp in Newcastle but he said this was 100% better. I think it’s a lot more relaxed and the staff you have are great with the children.

He attends a local Primary School and I’ll certainly be recommending they all try Sports School next holidays.

Thank you once again.

Hello Roddy, My daughter has had a great time at sports school. She says it's more fun than any other childcare sessions or holiday activities she has attended. That is high praise indeed, as she loved all of the other holiday clubs. Thanks a million to you and your friendly staff.

My son attended sports school for the first time this summer and absolutely loved it. He was a little apprehensive to begin with but the friendly staff welcomed him into the activities on the first morning. He now has new friends and enjoyed taking part in some fantastic new sports.

I have sent my children to several holiday sports courses and they both have enjoyed Sports School more than any other kids camp in the area. The staff are excellent and the facilities are fantastic.

Roddy runs a fantastic childcare programme of activities during the schools holidays. The staff are so enthusiastic, our kids love it!

My daughter has been attending Sports School for many years, she won’t go anywhere else during the holidays.

My 14 year old daughter went to Sports School this summer and had a great time, she will be back next year.

Here are some poems the children wrote about Sports School

Sports School is a place for learning and fun
There are no limitations except for a gun.
We don’t bully
We don’t hate
The days go by, but are so great.
Sports School, Sports School
We love it here and when we leave
we look forward to next year.

Sports School is the best
Better than all the rest.
Gym and Trampoline
Dodge ball too
Cricket and Basketball join the crew.
Make new friends
And learn new things
You never know what that could bring.
Roddy and the leaders make everything fun
The Purplies get everything done.
Sports School is the best
Better than all the rest.

Sports School
Sports School
So much fun
Sports School
Sports School
For everyone
We do football, basketball, netball and more
We even go to Jesmond Pool on tour.

Just to say that my son had an amazing time at Sports School last week. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and as a working parent it really put my mind at ease knowing he was having so much fun, in a safe and secure environment. I have been recommending you to friends and colleagues.
Thank you so very much to you and your wonderful team.
See you next Summer.

Just a few words to say thank you for the fantastic week that my two Spanish kids, Diego and Yago, had this summer at Sports School. It was a really nice experience for them.
I hope they can join you next year although they will be 15 by then.
Please, say thank you to all your staff and specially to Katy, she was really lovely.

Just a quick thank you for such an excellent kids club and holiday activities. Supports the changing world we live in where so many of us work full time and suffer the compromise to the child care we had as kids. Means My son gets some great opportunities to try out sports he would not experience otherwise, and has even discovered chess!
I was really impressed with several of the older and younger staff members, friendly open manner greeting kids (specially the "purplies" which I am guessing are just school age themselves), and the older staff members "front of house" manner, something that I think in many lines of business now is a lost skill.

Thank you for amazing summer club. My son has loved everyday, he is also totally in awe of your gladiator achieve and has increased the you tube hits significantly. Have a lovely break.

After many years, it was Jess's last day with you, can't believe she's now too old to come. I'd just like to say thanks for having her, I know she's had a great time over the last 9 summers, I wish you and the sports school all the best for the future and will continue to recommend the school whenever I can.
Jess will no doubt be in touch about becoming a purple-ee next year (if you'll have her!)

Thank you so much, My son has had a fantastic time, all your hard work is so worth it seeing the smile on his face

My daughter had a great time thanks Roddy. She brought along a friend yesterday who has never attended before and she loved it.

I am writing to say thank you very much for the great week at Sports School that you and your team gave my daughter and so.
They came home each night with plenty to tell us and really enjoyed their days.
My daughter can find big groups and new things overwhelming so it was lovely to see her achieve a full week. She loved the trampolining 🙂
My son is non stop full of energy and was very happy to be able to have the space and opportunity to exert it!
I am confident they will want to sign up again next year.

Hi Roddy
A big thank you to you and all the staff at Sport School for doing a great job with the children. My boys had a fabulous week. This time they have done really well in many activities and I can see this has made a big difference to their confidence.

We look forward to another varied sport programme in the summer.

My daughter came to sports school today and is desperate to come back tomorrow. Would you have a space at short notice?

Once again, thank you for your help and our appreciation of the week our Grandson spent at Heaton Manor, both he and his mother were extremely impressed with how it was run and the fun he had. We will certainly be enrolling him for summer.

Dear Roddy

Thank you for running a brilliant week. Our son (after a nervous Monday morning start) enjoyed every minute of it.
Thank you

My children have attended Sports School at Heaton Manor School. We have recently moved to Carlisle and are looking forward to Sports School coming to Morton Academy in Carlisle. Role on the Summer.

I just wanted to say what a fantastic week Will had at sports school last week. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and he's already asking when he can go back. He would even go back if he didn't know anyone else going- which is a big thing for him to do as he can be quite shy!

Many thanks and see you next time

Thanks for giving my daughter a great week. She has always been reluctant to attend holiday clubs. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and will be returning next year.

Dear Roddy,
I would like to say a massive thank you for giving our daughter such a wonderful time this summer holiday. She has had a fantastic experience and cannot wait to attend again next year. You and all the team have done a marvellous job of entertaining the kids and we are extremely grateful.

I'd like to say a personal thank you to everyone involved form Sports School, our Daughter loved every minute - so much so that we had to book here additional weeks. We were a little apprehensive as she hasn't Schooled in the UK yet although she has been at International Schools in Singapore, Perth, Philippines and Kuwait but we would not hesitate in sending her again or recommending Sports Schools.Excellent Job - thank you.

Dear Roddy and team,
Thank you for encouraging our daughter. She is adopted and due to her difficult start she lacks confidence in her abilities. She is delighted to have earned trampolining badges as she is often quite nervous about new experiences.
We hope to see you all again when we return next year.

Hi there!

I just wanted to thank you guys for making my sons birthday a very special one, for the cake and singing happy b-day to him! We were not expecting this and we are deeply touched and grateful aaaand happy that Max is enjoying his time with you!

Thanks again,

Just to say that my daughter attended today and absolutely loved the club! She's desperate to come again.so I'd better get booking.
Happy Parent

Best Wishes

Thank you for the last week. My daughter has had a great time. In fact I virtually had to drag her away today when I turned up unexpectedly early! It’s such a relief as a working parent to know that your child is being properly looked after during the holidays.
Thank you once again to you and all of your team.

Hi Roddy
Just an e mail to say thank you so much to you and your team at sports school! My son has had an amazing week and loved all the activities. We will definitely be booking next year he cant wait!!

Hi Roddy - both my daughters are booked in to sports school for 3 days in week 5 - they’ve enjoyed it so much this week, is it possible to upgrade them to the full week.

Many thanks,

Dear Roddy
It is our sixth year at Sports School. My boys loved it and this year they made many friendships.
Thank you for all the effort you put organising every detail and making it such a fantastic and memorable experience for our children.

Best wishes.

Hi Roddy,

Thanks very much to all of your staff. Our son had a great time again this summer at sports school. He's especially enjoyed learning how to do front and back flips on the trampoline and loved all of the team games. As a working parent, it's great that he has somewhere to go in the holidays that he loves attending, gets to learn lots of new skills and be active.

See you next time,

Hi Roddy thank you very much.

It was our daughters first club outside school and she's really enjoyed it.

Thank you Roddy and enjoy the rest of the holidays

Just to say thanks so much for this week, my son is now raving about it and says he definitely wants to come again in the summer, glad he stuck with it, thanks for encouraging him!

Thanks Roddy
Our children had as usual a fantastic week.
Looking forward to seeing you and your brilliant team in the summer.

I just wanted to feedback that my daughter Poppy attended Sports camp this week for the first time and has had a wonderful time.

Hello I just wanted to say a very big thank you from us and our daughter for the amazing time she had at sport school from week1-3!
She absolutely loved it and everyone there and is looking forward to next year along with her little sister!

He’s absolutely loved his time at Sports School, the staff and kids have been amazing and he’s enjoyed every single thing they’ve done. He’ll definitely be back!

Could you please pass on my thanks to Regan, Stuart and Amy (who have been leading Joe’s group) - they’ve all been fabulous and are a credit to the school.
