It’s the last term of the academic year and we’re busily planning how to keep our kiddies entertained until the start of the long Summer holidays.

Most classes run end of April – mid July with many having a break for half term in May.  Please check with individual organisations for exact dates and prices.

We have endeavoured to ensure all classes are correct (as of April 2019) but please do get in touch if you see any inaccuracies or would like your own class added.

Before booking, it’s always worth checking to see if clubs offer any special offers such as trial classes, early bird, sibling or even a QPMs discount!  Most classes that charge by the term will also allow you to join mid-term if there is space for a reduced rate.

Many of the local sports centres also hold a range of weekday and weekend classes, which we have linked at the end of this page.

*Please note, some of the class descriptions are from the class organisers and are not necessarily the opinion of QPM’s.


Little Scientists Club

Inspire your child’s scientific curiosity by enrolling them onto a Little Scientists Club course. Little Scientists Club courses help establish and strengthen the foundation for your child’s academic progress in the three branches of science – physics, chemistry and biology. In addition to learning about science, the courses teach children that every experiment is composed of steps they need to follow in order to achieve the intended result. Your child will have the opportunity to carry out a range of exciting activities and fun experiments including making a hovercraft, dissecting flowers, separating and mixing colours, making chemical reactions, the human body and more!
