School Services


We specialise in  Primary School work including PPA session cover, after school clubs, residential planning and advice. Our after school club sessions are aimed to be fun and engaging for the children to help them relax and unwind after a hard day at school. These sessions can be paid for direct by the school or a minimal charge per child can be set to allow the school more flexibility with sessions. PPA session cover can be set around curriculum activities either on or off site allowing us to help develop the children's learning by taking activities outside the class room. All sessions will be based around a comprehensive session plan or can be relaxed to just allow the children to play and learn. We can assist you with residential planning, offering you advice and guidance to help you plan an unforgettable trip for the children.
