We operate a before and after school club every day on the school site and is run by school staff. The Lodge provides the children with a safe, fun environment at both the start and the end of the school day. The Lodge is a specifically designed space to allow the children access to a wide range of toys, games and activities and also allow them the time and space to relax before or after a busy day.

To book a session, please contact Miss Atkinson via email at
