Outside term time, Towerbank After School Club runs a holiday club during the October, February, Easter and Summer breaks.

We are looking forward to be offering an exciting programme of fun for Summer 2022, from 4th July to 12th August. Here’s our programme ( Summer Holiday Club Programme 2022):

Running from 8:45am – 5:45pm each day Holiday clubs provide a variety of activities including trips to the local parks and the beach, loads of messy, arty, outdoor fun as well as various activities further afield such as the cinema, Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh Zoo, “Maid of the Forth” Boat Trip and Dalkeith Country park (Covid-19 restrictions and availability dependent).

Snacks: Each day of Holiday Club we provide two snacks. In the morning a choice of cereals and toast, in the afternoon a selection of healthy snacks similar to our After School Club snacks. Please provide a NUT FREE packed lunch for your child. On an all day trip please send extra snacks and lots of water (a couple of water bottles please). Please note that TASC is a nut free environment!

Clothing: It’s always a good idea during Holiday Club to pack spare clothes and make sure children are appropriately dressed for the day’s activities.  A change of clothes is needed on beach days, water fun days and for many other messy play activities! If it is a trip day please provide clothing appropriate for a range of Scottish summer weather!

Transport: On some days we plan to travel on public transport and we also use booked coaches for the trips further afield. We will of course abide by all appropriate covid-related protocols when using their services. 

New P1 children: We welcome applications for our Summer club from new P1 families – it’s a great way for children to get to know the school building and make some new friends before they start school in August, however we ask that you only book pre-schoolers into Club-based days and not trip days.

Popular days may fill up quickly so I would advise you to book a space as soon as you can.

Booking and Payment: go to our new online Registration Form 

Booking is open NOW!

Places will go on a first come, first served basis BUT you will be added to a waiting list if the day is fully booked, in case of cancellations.

Fees are £30 per day and where applicable half days are £15 (eg trip days can only be booked as full days), plus a £5 surcharge for some of the more expensive trips.

Disclaimers

There are a few provisos attached to any Holiday Club programme:

  1. Each Holiday is dependent on our Lettings confirmation from Edinburgh Council, sometimes buildings works are planned in school holidays and we may not be able to run.
  2. We hope that the pandemic is mostly behind us now but all activities are still Covid dependent. 
  3. Some activities are weather dependent and we may swap activities around if the weather is particularly bad. The “Big Trips” will go ahead regardless (covid dependent).
We hope you and your child(ren) are as excited about our Holiday Club Programmes as we are, we love to have fun during the school breaks!
