Learning and development in the early years gives a great foundation for all children to flourish in their chosen field later in their journey. Developing the whole child is something we are incredibly passionate about at Sedbergh Courses and this Course provides many fun and exciting opportunities to challenge and develop brain skills, sporting pedigree, physical and social development.

What do young people want from sport?

  • Choice – they want to help design the training sessions, GAMIFICATION style
  • Learn new skills
  • Challenge – suitable level of challenge with support scaffold around activity
  • Fun & Enjoyment with friends
  • Variety – try various positions across many sports

The Course will be designed by the Director of Sport at Sedbergh Preparatory School, Rupert Bunday. The course will incorporate many sports such as rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, football, lacrosse and more.

Each day will be split into sections and every attendee will take part in a carousel of activities ensuring that all individuals have plenty of opportunity to develop in different environments.

We want everyone to leave with a huge smile on their face, having had enormous amounts of fun, learned lots and made many new friends.

The fun doesn’t stop there. With a comprehensive evening programme to further enhance our core values we have a residential option for 8–11-year-olds (Movie nights, marshmallows around the fire pit and a Wednesday BBQ extravaganza). This unique opportunity allows children to taste the full boarding experience. The course will be based at Casterton, but will be residential at Sedbergh alongside all our other courses

“Our son thoroughly enjoyed himself this week. The variety of activities and the new people he has met has resulted in him having an amazing time. He was so disappointed this morning that it was the last day today! Please pass on my thanks to all those involved - it has been such a great experience for him and one that I am sure he would like to repeat in the future.”


“Our child had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of the course.  Each evening, they would get into the car and immediately start talking about the day with much enthusiasm.  Perfect for every sports crazy child, I’m so glad their friend mentioned it and asked them along. Thanks for making them feel so welcome.”
