Educational and Fun Holiday Camps in 2020

We prepare new content, materials and exciting projects for every camp. Even if your child has joined us for previous camps they will always learn new things and cover new subjects.  We are now running our Half Term and Holiday camps ONLINE (if you are interested in face to face camps, please let us know).

All classes are run by our usual teachers so children may well be familiar with the teachers they see online. Our teachers all have enhanced DBS checks and are experts in their subject, usually with a PhD or Masters in Mathematics, Programming or Robotics. 

You can register for one of our camps by filling in the form here. You can view October camps timetable here.

Christmas Holidays, December 2020

12-13 December 2020: ONLINE Oxbridge Preparation Weekend, 'Interview Preparation',  for Years 11-13

Alongside practical problem solving and group discussions we will be sharing with participants Oxford and Cambridge entrance insights and will address questions including:

  • What are these highly selective universities looking for?

  • What happens during interviews?

  • How can I best prepare for interview?

14-18 December 2020: ONLINE Senior Maths and Programming Camp, ‘The Power of Algorithms - What they are and How they work ’, for ages 7-17 
This camp is all about how in programming, maths and beyond, algorithms can be used to sequence instructions with the goal of solving a specific problem, performing a certain action, or a computation. 

 
14-18 December 2020: ONLINE Junior Maths, Coding and Chess Camp, ‘Christmaths’ for ages 5 to 7.5 

This newly created camp is full of excitement to teach maths and logic. We prepared a lot of wonderful puzzles, mazes, logical games, optical illusions and paradoxes. Our young mathematicians can solve those together in our small online classes and then perhaps surprise their family and friends at the Christmas (virtual) table.

Christmaths theme will also be the backdrop to the children’s study of  Programming while Chess will sharpen smart young minds, even if they have not played before!


The format for senior online camp is as follows:

  • each day runs for six hours with four one hour classes and strategic breaks from the screen between them

  • class sizes are six pupils or fewer of similar age and ability

  • all classes are interactive, using Zoom, with pupils solving problems with the teacher and with each other  

  • class times are: 10.00-11.00, 11.30-12.30, 13.30-14.30, 15.00-16.00

  • Fees are £300 for three days, £400 for four or £500 for five

Places are limited, please register your interest HERE.

To take part you must have a PC or laptop (Windows or Mac OS) with a camera and mic and a stable internet connection. 

Our capacity for the camp is only 35 pupils because classes are even smaller than usual. This contrasts with the 150 pupils we would usually teach across several camps. We will therefore have to give priority to pupils booking for five days. While we would hope to also offer daily classes in just maths, programming, robotics or chess as a 5-day course for £125, this may not be possible if all camp places are taken.  

If you are booking a senior camp for fewer than five days we would encourage you to start on Monday.
 

The format for junior online camp is as follows:

  • each day runs for three hours with three 45 minute classes and strategic breaks from the screen between them

  • class sizes are four or five pupils of similar age and ability

  • all classes are interactive, using Zoom, with pupils solving problems with the teacher and with each other  

  • class times are: 9.00-9.45, 10.10-10.55 and 11.20-12.05 or 12.40-13.25, 13.50-14.35 and 15.00-15.45

  • Fees are £345 for five days, Monday to Friday
