Fun and Active

All children are welcome to our before / after and holiday clubs. It is well stocked with excellent equipment for the children to enjoy with their friends. Our school and holiday club is a fun and active place to be.


Our children have access to a variety of crafts, computers, film nights, music and dancing, games, sports equipment including table football, snooker, table tennis, air hockey, day trips (holiday periods only), cooking, baking and much, much more …

Our children have full access to the main school hall and adjoining rooms, our younger children also share access to our pirehill pre-school class room.

We provide the children with breakfast consisting of toast and fruit and a light tea consisting of sandwiches and salad sticks. Fresh drinking water is available throughout the sessions or during the day. All children attending the holiday club are required to bring a packed lunch for the day.
All children attending the holiday club come from a variety of different schools and you do not have to attend the before and after school club to attend the holiday club.

Book a Tour

We follow parent’s wishes as to where and when the babies sleep. We have a variety of cots, bouncers and sleep mats. We do not have set times for sleeping. Babies sleep as needed but also in line with their parents wishes.

Our babies nappies are changed regularly throughout the day or whenever needed. The carers check the babies’ nappies regularly. Each child has their own box where we store your child’s own nappies, wipes and creams (we do ask for parents to provide these).

Our babies are encouraged to explore and become mobile as they begin to cruise, crawl and walk around the rooms.
