Our Holiday Club runs throughout all school holidays (except for 2 weeks over Christmas) and is open from 8am – 6pm every day during these times for children aged 2-11. With a more relaxed, ‘home-from-home’ environment, Holiday Club is designed to cater for the individual needs of the children, with a wide array of age-appropriate outings and activities. During the holiday periods we try wherever possible to get ‘Out and About’ and search high and low for fantastic outings (near and far) that will enrich the children’s time with us. For our Early Years children, there are regular visits to local farms, indoor and outdoor play spaces and movie cinema mornings. For our older children, recent trips have included wall climbing, country parks, places of historical interest and local sporting venues amongst many others. All children are encouraged to take part in art, craft and baking activities and just love our Holiday Club themed parties which take place during October Half-Term, Christmas and Easter. Throughout the year we offer special themed activity weeks, and have recently presented such weeks as, ‘Hallowe’en Week’, ‘Get Active Week’, ‘Drama Week’, ‘Get Cooking Week’, ‘Nature Week’ and ‘Get Creative Week’.
Introducing Mayville Academy of Performing Arts
Mayville High School is pleased to announce the launch of its Performing Arts Academy, offering your children the chance to take part in an Easter workshop and Summer Schools in dance, singing, drama & stage management.
Mayville High School has long been ahead of its time in recognising the intrinsic value of performing arts and now we would like to offer our expertise and facilities to all children in the school holidays.
Our pupils have been taking LAMDA exams in speech and drama since 1985 and we are one the few schools in the South to have been involved in Rock Challenge since its inception more than 20 years ago. This year we are staging High School Musical at the Kings Theatre and our last performance of Peter Pan there saw specialist teams brought in to teach our children to fly in harnesses.
At Mayville we have wonderful facilities, including two dance studios and a hall that can be transformed into a theatre space. Many of our pupils have gone into higher education in the performing arts and a significant number have gone on to work
in the creative industry as dancers, actors and in television.
This Easter we are launching our Academy of Performing Arts with a one day workshop on April 4th, which includes singing, dance and acting as well as an experience of Technical Theatre. It is an opportunity for your children to improve their confidence and fitness, build on the skills they already have and work as part of a team. They will have tremendous fun!
We would like to warmly invite all budding young actors, singers, dancers and those interested in behind-the-scenes skills to take part.
