After School Club

Our most popular and loved club, where children come to relax, play and blow away those classroom cobwebs after a busy day at school.

We run after school clubs across four locations:

  • Sefton Park School – for children aged 3–7 attending Sefton Park or Brunel Field primary schools
  • St Bart’s Church Hall – for children aged 8–11 attending Sefton Park or Brunel Field
  • Fairlawn School – for children aged 4–11 attending Fairlawn and St Barnabas schools
  • Dolphin School - for children aged 4-11 attending Dolphin School

What to expect

At the end of the school day, our After School clubbers are collected from their classrooms by one of our friendly playworkers.

Upon arrival, everyone is offered a yummy, scrummy healthy snack, with a menu consisting of: toast, crumpets, wraps, rice cakes, cheese and crackers, and a selection of fruit and veg. Juice and water is also available throughout the session.

Let us know about any dietary requirements and we will be happy to accommodate them. Visit our Registration page for more information.

After snack time, everyone is free to play or chill out until tidy up time at 17:30. All children must then be picked up by 18:00.

Things to do

We champion free play and a child-led approach to care at Sparks, so everyone is encouraged to choose how they wish to spend their afternoons with us. We organise fun craft activities, games and cooking sessions each day, inviting the children to participate, although there is never any pressure to join in.
