After School Care and Holiday Clubs

After school club

If pupils are unable to be collected at the end of normal lessons, they are welcome to attend our after school club. There is a charge of £5.50 for a short session, (from 3pm to 4.15pm) and a charge of £11 per day for a long session, (from 3pm to 5.30pm). These charges are added to the following term’s school fees.

What happens at the after school club?

The session for girls in 1 Junior takes place in the nursery, and for girls in 2-6 Junior in the dining room. Children can take part in a variety of activities such as crafts, baking, ICT, role-play, board games and puzzles, all supervised by our team of after school care staff.

The girls in 2 – 6 Junior can be part of the after school care pupil council, and all the children participate in planning what happens at after school care. Every year, after school care holds a charity event and a pupil conference. Healthy snacks are provided, including fruit or vegetable sticks, along with a variety of other items such as toast, bagels, cereals and soup.

Homework Club

Girls from 7 Junior upwards who need to stay beyond 3.40 p.m before being collected might find it useful to attend the homework club. This is also a supervised club which takes place in the school library between 3.45 p.m. and 5.30 p. Monday to Thursday, and from 3.05 p.m on Fridays.   Here,  pupils can work quietly to complete set homework until parents arrive. Homework club costs £4.50 per session and charges are added to the fees.

Big Sisters’ Club

Many younger girls attending St Margaret’s in 1 Junior - 6 Junior wait for an older sister to finish school later in the day. These girls can come along to the Big Sisters’ club – a free, supervised service where girls can wait until their elder sibling has completed the school day. This must be booked in advance, so please do get in touch with the school if this is of interest.

Holiday Clubs

Easter Holiday Club: 9th - 13th April 2018

St Margaret’s ran a very successful Holiday Club within the School during the Summer holidays (17th July – 11th August 2017) and October holidays (23rd - 27th October). 

We will be running the Holiday Club again from 9th - 13th April 2018. The Holiday Club is available for St Margaret’s School children and their siblings and friends aged between 3 and 12 years.  The daily charge for the club is £40 and it will run from 8.00am until 5.30pm.

Each day there will be a variety of fun activities which will capture the children’s interest, there will be a mix of adult led activities such as baking, crafts, sports and circle games as well as time for free play. We also plan to invite visiting specialists to provide activities such as dancing, sport and crafts. We aim to provide a balance of activities which give children the opportunity to be creative and to experience energetic play, but there will also be time for quiet activities which allow them to concentrate for a period, or take time to relax.

From time to time, there will be trips to local parks and amenities. Further details will be released once we know the age and numbers of children attending each week. The children will take part in the day-to-day planning of the club when they attend.

The children should bring a morning snack and a packed lunch. We will provide a healthy snack in the afternoon.
