OUR ACTIVITIES

What are you looking for?

Excel+ Activities run throughout our Summer weeks. Drop Off from 8am with pick up until 6pm. Each Excel camps start at 9am prompt. Excel+ Activities eg football, art, swim/dive camps take the place of the All Sports activities during the day, typically for 2-3 hours with the children joining the main All Sports camp for the remainder of the day. This allows them to focus on one activity through the week but not to miss out on the team activities, prizes and film making that make up Excel.

Our Staff

Qualified P.E. Teachers

Regulated by the Care Inspectorate

Excel Sports is regulated by the Care Inspectorate. Our ratios are 1:8 and we generally employ PE teachers or PE students with assistants who have relevant qualifications.

All Excel staff have completed and passed an up to date Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) check. This is a registration system for all people who work with children and vulnerable adults in the UK that will confirm that there is no known reason why they should not be permitted to work with these client groups.

All staff will also have completed a pre-camp child protection meeting to highlight and share good practice.
