Football on 3G pitch

School’s out for summer…or is it?

There are loads of fun activities going on at Wrexham schools during the summer hols to help keep your kids active…from sports camps to craft clubs.

Councillor John Pritchard, Lead Member for Youth Services, says:

“Even though classrooms might be closed for summer, schools and associated facilities can still provide your children with lots of things to do.

“For example, a lot of primary schools offer holiday clubs, which combine childcare with play activities.

“And some of our secondary schools are home to Freedom Leisure Centres, which offer lots of sports and activities for children.

“Even during the holidays, there’s a lot going on at schools to help keep your child busy and active.”

Some of the things on offer…

School holiday clubs


There are lots of holiday clubs based at primary schools in Wrexham, providing full and half-day childcare combined with a range of play activities.

Some are run by the schools themselves, while others are run by outside providers.
