Fitz Kids is a holiday club for the children of Fitzwaryn School and the surrounding area.
It provides fun, stimulating, child-initiated activities within a safe, friendly and inclusive environment.
We follow the values and ethos of Fitzwaryn School and encourage and demonstrate these qualities at all times.
Children can relax and spend time with other children on activities such as; art, cooking, playing games, construction, sports, music and soft play.
At times, we will arrange for other professionals to come in and deliver activity days/ work shops or even go out for day trips.
Fitz Kids are contracted by Oxfordshire County Council to provide 20 days holiday club provision each year.

Recent Updates/ News
We had four days of fun and activities during the Easter break and the weather was very kind to us!
Monday was spent at Thomley, where the young people loved spending time outside on the bikes, go-carts and zip wire. However, the most popular piece of outdoor equipment was the new jumping pillow, which had been installed since our trip last year - the children (and staff) loved it, and as always our children were kind and courteous of other users. We also enjoyed exploring the creative play rooms and spending time in softplay and the ball pit.
Tuesday was another successful trip to Maymessy for the upper group. The young people cooked roasted vegetable fajitas and chocolate crispy cakes for their lunch, played tennis outside and played games, completed puzzles and did some Easter crafts inside too.
Anna & Maia at Maymessy commented on how amazing the group were at both the cooking and clearing away, and how they are looking forward to our next visit.
Wednesday was an activity day at Fitzwaryn, where both groups spent time inside and outside on their favourite games/activities, Easter themed crafts and had an egg hunt, with a little treat at the end.
Lower group especially enjoyed the sensory tuff tray, with kale, herbs and lentils- most of which were eaten!
Upper group enjoyed making the Easter decorations to take home.
Thursday was a sensory play day for lower group, we had the fabulous Katie from Swings and Smiles in for the afternoon and the children loved exploring the Easter themed sensory play session she had set up and judging by the amount of giggling, great fun was had in the dark den with the lights.
Once again, many thanks to all the staff supporting at the club, making it fun and successful for our pupils
