The school was founded in Surrey in 1879 by a scholar from Oxford, originally with four pupils. The boys were provided with a happy, harmonious learning environment in which good care was taken to ensure that the pupils were valued.
Parkside is now a thriving preparatory school for boys aged from 4 to 13, with an on-site co-educational nursery. Set in beautiful grounds on the outskirts of Cobham, the school provides a stimulating environment in which boys can learn, grow and develop. Active Camps will use some of the school’s range of comprehensive facilities, which include the Swimming Pool, Performance Hall, Adventure playground and use of the wonderful grounds for outdoor learning, sports and games.
The camp is separated by age group; the exact ages can fluctuate depending on the numbers of the day, however, there is a maximum of 30 children in each group. We have created an area for our Early Years children, which is filled with bright colours and a fantastic range of toys/activities to entertain our younger children during their free play time…when they’re not off finding Nemo in the pool or building spaceships in our arts & crafts corner. When you arrive, there will be boards displaying the day’s breakdown and the planned activities for each group. Each group will have a designated Team Leader – their name will also be listed on the board, and they’ll be identifiable by their lanyard.
At Parkside, all children have the opportunity to participate in a form of sports, arts & crafts, and icebreaker games. This is to encourage all areas of development which are appropriate to their age, and a chance to bond with other children and staff.
Active Plus is a series of camps and workshops which are delivered by specialist coaches within their field. Our specialists provide fun-filled and stimulating environments for all children, by tailoring the camps to promote inclusion, no matter the skill level, by challenging the individual needs of each child.
