After School Club
Thorncombe St Mary’s offers after-school wrap-around child care: Monday to Thursday until 5 pm and until 4.30 pm on Fridays.
Our designated club leaders offer children snacks, a variety of planned enrichment activities and an opportunity to relax and play at the end of the day. Making use of our fabulous outdoor facilities, children can enjoy: photography and ‘eco’ activities around the wildlife pond; gardening; and cooking in the kitchen, fire-pit or cob oven. Popular ‘Arts & Crafts’ sessions range from still life and portraits to printing and making seasonal gifts. For details, refer to the planner below.
Sessions can be booked via the School Secretary and are charged privately – see further information on link below and on the policy which can be found on the policies page of the website.
Breakfast Club is also available every day between 8-8.30 am.
