Holiday Programme

We are pleased to announce that we will be running a FREE holiday programme once again this Easter Holiday. 


The holiday programme will take place from Tuesday 2nd April to Friday 5th April 2024 (4 days)


The programme is for those children currently in Years 3 to 9 (Aged 7-14) and in receipt of Free School Meals. 


The day will run from 9:30am - 3pm with a free breakfast and lunch provided each day.

Activities will include sports, dance, drama and cooking.




The programme is government funded and in order to comply with the conditions of the funding we must follow new procedures for participation and registration:

  • Registration must take place through the MCRactive website. Search under the Provider and type in "Manchester Communication Academy" Here it will display the sessions to book your child on to. If you and your children aren't already members of MCRactive you must sign up (this is free).

  • In order to qualify for a place on the programme your child MUST be in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). The system will only allow those children on FSM to register.

  • Providing there are still places available the system will allow those children not in receipt of FSM to sign up but only 48 hours before the start of the programme.

  • Your child MUST be a Manchester resident.


Should you encounter any problems or have any queries please get in touch.

Please see the report here and video below which captures the amazing programme delivered over the summer of 2021, thanks to funding from the Department for Education, Manchester City Council and sponsorship from Hilary Vaughan Associates LTD.
