Welcome to Discoveries
Discoveries is the before and after school club care for all year groups in school including early years. The school club works alongside the school to provide the best care for all children.
Discoveries is an area of fun, games and challenges to keep the children entertained until home time. Our dedicated team have expert knowledge in running activities from sports, crafts and general play. We offer every child opportunities to join in activities or have some free time to play their own games. Many students take the time to complete homework where the staff can offer help.
We offer all students a snack on a morning for breakfast, where we have a range of foods from cereals, yoghurts, fruits, toast and bagels. Discoveries after school snack is prepared by the school kitchen staff. We offer a snack every day, including two hot meals per week plus a variety of fruits. Our menu can be found on the entrance doors.
