Has anyone done one, just heard about them today. I see some private schools offer up to 3 subjects to do in a week over Easter holidays.

It's not quite the same thing, but when I was in year 12 my school made me attend a three day 'Justin Craig' revision course over a bank holiday weekend. Unfortunately I really didn't enjoy it, nor do I think it helped me at all. I didn't have to pay for it, but having seen the price I would have been furious if I had have done! For me the course just involved large periods of sitting in absolute silence while doing past papers, interspersed with a few PowerPoint presentations. I really don't think it was worth my time going at all; past papers are available online for free, and I can sit in silence at the library!
Obviously not all of these courses will be the same, so I would suggest reading through some online reviews before making a decision. That said, I would still make sure that the time and resources that teachers can offer are exhausted before paying for this type of thing. Your child's teachers know your child better (just assuming that you're writing this with respect to your child based on your username!), and any test material they can provide will be just as good. The course I went on really wasn't worth it in my opinion.
