In 2020 we will be running two Junior holidays, at Winchester House School in Northamptonshire, a beautiful old manor house with lovely grounds.

Junior Holidays are for those who are currently (as at September 2019) in School Years 6-8.

2020 holidays

JUNIOR A: 13–20 July
JUNIOR B: 21–28 July

Full cost: £449

The holiday costs £449 which includes full board and all activities (but does not include the cost of travel to and from the holiday). If the cost would prevent you from coming, please do contact us regarding a bursary. To avoid disruption to groups and activities, we are generally unable to accept bookings for only part of the holiday.

Between 40 and 70 young people come on each of the holidays drawn from a variety of Independent Schools in London with which we have links. Please enquire to find out if we have links with a particular school.

There are lots of newcomers on every holiday and we work hard to provide a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. Each person is part of a small group of boys or girls with two or three Leaders assigned to look after them. Activities are often done together with those in the same small group.

The holiday leaders are a large team of volunteers including many school teachers and undergraduates.

Winchester House is a beautiful prep school situated in Brackley, Northamptonshire. The school has excellent accommodation and sports facilities, you can see more details of the school and its facilities here.
