Before and After School

At Pilgrims we have a range of activities happening before and after school as well as during school holidays. Please download our Little Book of Extras for more information about our breakfast clubs, after school clubs and holiday clubs and contact the school directly to book.

Larks and Owls

Our breakfast club is called Larks and is available each morning throughout the school term. Mrs Luxemburg and her team welcome the children into the school dining room from 8:00 am for breakfast. Children in Years 1 and 2 make their own way down to their classroom from 8:30 am. Children in Reception are walked down to their classroom in time for registration at 8:45 am.

Our after-school tea club, Owls, runs in two sessions. The first session is from 3:30 pm until 5:00 pm and includes a snack and drink. The second session runs from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Parents can choose to book either Owls 1 or Owls 2 or both. During this time the children can choose to take part in a selection of activities and games both indoors and outdoors. This is also a chance for them to relax or catch up with friends in different year groups.

How to Book

Sessions can be booked in advance either in writing or via the forms available at our main reception. However, if you let us know by lunchtime, you can book Owls for the same day. Simply inform the staff on main reception in person or telephone us on: 01234 369555 and we will inform the Owls staff to expect your child.

Only sessions which are used will be charged for. These charges will be added, in arrears, to your termly bill.  Larks costs £5.40 per session (includes breakfast), Owls 1 costs £7.90 per session (includes a sandwich tea) and Owls 2 costs £4.10 per session.

After school clubs

Our after school clubs run each day from 3.30 pm. Clubs range from ballet, gymnastics, cookery, gardening and swimming to drama, tennis, tag rugby and football. Further details can be found in our Little Book of Extras or by contacting the school’s main office.

Holiday clubs

Our holiday club is available for children from Reception through to Year 2. It operates for approximately 11 weeks per year, covering half-terms, Christmas, Easter and summer. Each week is themed and the children choose from a wide variety of activities from arts and crafts, swimming and cooking. The children can bring their bike or scooter (as long as they have their cycle helmet) so they can enjoy the outdoors.

  • Monday 29 October 2018 to Friday 2 November 2018
  • Monday 17 December 2018 to Friday 21 December 2018
