Our Schools

Partner Schools

We are working with over 35 of the best educational institutions across the UK, and with over 20 years experience we can also help your school generate revenue from its facilities during holiday periods. Scroll down for our full list of partner schools.


“LVS has had a long-standing relationship with Active Education and this has grown over many years.

The operations team, led by Duncan Radnor, are always professional and enthusiastic about their role, taking great care with the children who enrol on the courses. Besides the obvious advantage of additional revenue with the numbers of pupils using the premises during the holiday period, Active Education have worked with our Sixth Form students to train them as swimming instructors, and in return they gain some employment opportunities with the company during the summer.

Active Education always settle their accounts promptly and support the school wherever possible. We have an excellent and very flexible working relationship, which is needed on a day/boarding site as, inevitably, maintenance projects are undertaken during the summer. This sometimes results in changes of rooms or available facilities. Active Education are always keen to work with us to ensure we get the best solution to any such issues.

I recommend Active Education very highly to schools looking for a positive partnership with an external provider.”

Ian Mullins

Executive Director of Education & Operations, LVS Ascot

“We have been really impressed with Active Education, particularly their understanding of our requirements to have holiday programmes that reflect our school values and provide parents with quality programmes that not only entertain children, but also actively develop them.

Active Education Group’s holiday programmes compliment our educational provision, and also allow us to showcase our school and facilities to new parents – seeing smiling children and parents leaving the school at the end of the day certainly reaffirms our decision.”

Andy Rolfe

Deputy Bursar, Headington School

“St. Gabriel’s continuously reviews its “holiday offering” to match changing parental taste and choice, and also to provide the highest quality possible. We found that our parents wanted much more than just childcare, and more importantly their children wanted much more than that too! Ultimate Activity Camps marketed themselves as a new breed of Activity providers and it was very clear from our earliest discussions that they had deep experience and strong passions.

 If there was just one image that epitomised the success of every day it would be tired, happy, bedraggled children of all ages leaving at the end of very busy days, saying “Can I come back tomorrow?” Staffing was excellent… not just idle supervision. The success can also be measured by the return rate of students, the additional days booked, and the overwhelming reports of satisfied parents. We’re looking forward to the summer when we expand into “Schools of Sport” with Netball, Athletics and Dance Academies.”

Noel Erskine

Bursar , St. Gabriel’s

“Active Education Group have been a welcome addition to the Crosfields community. We are now able to offer childcare for our families at Easter, the Summer holidays and October half term which is much needed by busy, working families. Moreover, they have enabled us to open our doors to many more children from the local area who can now benefit from our excellent facilities.

We have been very impressed by their quiet efficiency and organisation leading up to activity weeks and afterwards. Their safeguarding practices and risk assessments are very visible and offer a high degree of reassurance to parents and school alike. The staff are caring, engaged and professional.

Whilst Active Education are with us, the school is filled with the sound of happy children – what more could you ask for on a summer’s day?”

Caroline Purdom

Bursar, Crosfields School

“Active Education Group have been running their Ultimate Active Camps at Queen’s College for the last few years. Response from parents and school staff has been great: “Professional, organised, caring and reliable service of the highest quality.” The response from the children has been outstanding: “Brilliant, so much to do, love it, can I come back tomorrow!”Each year, numbers have grown yet the standard of care and service has not been diminished. Active Education Group do not just supervise the children, they entertain them, challenge them to try new things, inspire them and help them to forge new friendships.”
