About Us

A specialist provider of high quality activity and learning programmes for children

About us

Active Education Group was established to provide a range of high quality products into the childcare, children’s education and leisure sectors, helping education establishments to maximise facility revenue during holiday periods.  Our products operate out of hired schools, or other educational facilities, and are delivered to high standards to compliment a school’s existing provision.

Maximising educational facility revenue

Active Education Group (AEG) has been established to create a range of products that can be delivered at schools, or other educational institutions, to generate significant extra revenue through holiday programmes. These programmes are based around holiday childcare, language or other activities and can be day time or residential courses, depending on the facilities.  AEG pays schools a guaranteed rental income with potential extra revenue related to numbers of participants attending the programmes.

Alternatively AEG business products can be branded in the school’s name to add value to the school’s overall educational provision.

Range of products

AEG work closely with school decision makers to establish what the priorities for holiday courses at each school are, and offer a range of products to meet those needs. AEG offers the below core programmes, with more detail in ‘Portfolio‘.

  • Multi-activity day camps offering holiday childcare
  • English Language Courses


The management of all programmes, whether branded in the school’s name or otherwise, will be undertaken by AEG and the school will receive a rental fee income.

Peace of mind and a wealth of experience

Ben Prior, founder and Chief Executive of the Active Education Group has over 30 years’ of experience running activity based holiday programmes out of hired school facilities, and has a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing schools today. Ben has previously been Head of Sport at a Boys Preparatory school, a School Governor, sat on various committees at Oxford University RFC and was runner up in The Oxfordshire Businessman of the year award in 2015.

Supporting a good cause

In 2006 Ben Prior helped found the charitable project, Camp Africa, which runs day and residential camps for township children living in Cape Town, South Africa. The camps teach key life skills, assist vulnerable children with homework support, build self-esteem and give them a holiday they would otherwise never have.  Ben continues to support Camp Africa, and working with AEG will directly support funding of future camps.
