SMART Club-The fun place to be before and after school!!

Do you need childcare before school, after school or in the school holidays?

Our out of school club is run by St Mary's staff. It is open before and after school every day in term time, and all day in the school holidays, including INSET days! (Excluding Christmas and bank holidays). The name was chosen by a pupil from our school and stands for St Mary's Are Really Together. 

We are based in the Family Learning Centre at St Mary's - on the Key Stage 2 playground, and have use of school facilities such as the playing field, Shady Hollow (the wooded area on the field), playgrounds, adventure trail, computer suite, sports hall and kitchen areas (for cookery).
