“Extraordinary activities for extraordinary young people” 

‘Skool’s Out’ playschemes run in the school holidays for children and young people between 8 and 17 years old. Our playschemes have been operating since 2001. Originally piloted for just two weeks this scheme has gone from strength to strength. We now operate for three weeks based at Ridgeway School in Kempston. With loads of fun activities on and offsite from arts and crafts, sports, climbing, canoeing, bowling, ice skating, trips out, theatre workshops, music therapy, themed days, swimming and so much more! There is nothing we won’t try! 
We have different groups which are divided in accordance to the young people’s age, needs and interests in order to provide the most appropriate activities. Each day typically has a morning and an afternoon activity on offer. We aim to provide as varied a timetable as possible and often bring in outside facilitators to provide specialist workshops and skills. These are full days of sensory fun and games, inclusive, creative and empowering activities led by experienced staff and volunteers. We run a summer playscheme as well as dates in October, February & May half terms and the Easter holidays.
