    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 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 have a good choice of clubs available for families to choose from each term. Clubs range from drama and dance to sports and cookery. Children really enjoy the clubs; both for what the club is offering and for the social aspects.

    We work closely with our providers to ensure children get the best possible experience each week delivered by committed and quality tutors and coaches. Where possible these tutors and coaches are also supported by existing Thomas Fairchild staff members. Please see our current club list here.

    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.
