    Extended Schools

    At Thomas Fairchild, we have a broad Extended Schools offer which includes a Breakfast Club and exciting After School clubs.

    Extended Schools are designed to help parents balance work and family commitments, whilst providing children with study support and offering them a broader range of experiences and interests.

    Breakfast Club

    Our aim with our Breakfast Club is to provide a healthy breakfast followed by activities that engage all the pupils to ensure a positive start to their day.

    Our Breakfast Club is based on a first come first served basis and we operate a waiting list. Breakfast Club is open to all pupils from Reception to Year 6.

    After School Clubs

    We encourage children to join our variety of exciting and enjoyable clubs which range from sporty, artistic, and musical to dramatic arts. They are a great opportunity for children to explore new skills and develop their talents.

    These clubs are led by members of the Thomas Fairchild team, family members, tutors from the school community and beyond.

    Our Space Playcentre

    Our Space, Thomas Fairchild's after school playcentre, offers fantastic and creative play led by a friendly, caring and experienced play team. Our Space is an affordable opportunity for working or studying parents and their children to enjoy themselves and relax after the school day.

    Our Space is open 3:30pm – 6:00pm every weekday (term time only). We provide children with a choice of a hot or cold snack.

    Our emphasis on free play allows children to choose what, how and with whom they want to play. We offer a wide and diverse range of activities, games and resources which stimulate, encourage and support children in their play. We are dedicated to ensuring children’s safety and happiness as they explore and learn through play.
