KEEP THE KIDS ENTERTAINED AFTER SCHOOL WITH THESE FAB EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

As we head back to school after the half-term break, we know some kids will be looking to continue their development outside of the classroom – through sports, dance, martial arts or music. With limited options in the current situation, we’ve rounded up some fantastic activities that we are sure the kids will LOVE!

We’ve ensured they’re all following safety and hygiene protocols as well as observing social distancing, so you can rest assured your child can try out new skills or develop their existing ones in a safe and controlled environment.
