Holiday play scheme

Our girls gain priority access to the University of Cambridge Holiday Playscheme.

Exclusive access

St Mary’s School families benefit from priority access to the University of Cambridge Holiday Playscheme, which takes place at our Junior School site on Chaucer Road. Access is offered on a first come, first served basis, before bookings are opened up to the wider public.

The Playscheme

The Playscheme provides childcare and play opportunities for children from Reception age through to 15 years.

The organisers strongly believe in child-led play. Each holiday, activities are likely to consist of arts and crafts, sports, rollerblading, construction, den building, woodwork, role play, fancy dress, cooking, reading, messy play, music, water play, party games, and much more.

Over 11s take part in activities such as board games, cooking and baking, drama activities, films, local trips, snack preparation, games on the Wii, and barbecues.

There are also opportunities to participate in trips to local parks, museums, nature reserves, and other places of interest.

“I like Playscheme because I can make new friends, have fun and play together”

“My child loves it here – I’d like to say to change something but I don’t think there is anything – thank you!” Jayne, parent
