Peace of Mind / About Us

Welfare and Well-Being

For many years, Bede’s has been known for its pastoral care, and The Holiday Club continues in the same vein.

The children’s welfare and well-being are our top priorities, and we have teams committed to ensuring that all children involved in our camps are happy and secure. Because to our 1:6 staff-to-student ratio, our staff are always on hand to assist with whatever the child’s concerns may be.

We make sure that we have sufficient members of the team which are first aid trained, so you can rest easy knowing that your child is in the safest possible hands.
