The Old School Adventure Club

Before & After School Club

Willington, Findern, Sale & Davys, Egginton

We have our own modern private mini-buses which we use for Before & After School club. Children are dropped off or picked up from school by experienced drivers (Over 25) whose driving skills have been assessed and follow strict safety procedures. Children are provided with Hi Viz jackets. The children receive a healthy and filling breakfast in the morning before being taken to school and the member of staff waits with them until they safely go inside.

When they are picked up, any messages or feedback from the school are taken note of, to relay back to the parents/carers later that day. The children receive a yummy tea followed by fresh fruit and organic whole milk or water and are then free to play with their friends, with full access to a huge variety of equipment, to play outdoors or do their homework with qualified experienced staff on hand to help them.

Before school club: 7:30am – School bell
After school club: School pick-up – 6:00pm
Wherever possible, we do provide later pick-ups from school to allow children to attend the school after-school clubs.

Holiday Club

Reception to Year 6 (4 – 11 years)

Our Holiday Club is full of fun and exciting activities, trips, and local outings and run by experienced, qualified staff.

Each holiday we plan an agenda for each day in advance, so that the children know what they’ve got to look forward to. All the children get on brilliantly together and have strong friendships. They are always friendly, welcoming, and caring to new faces.

Along with trips to the cinema, laser quest, bowling, parks, and much more, exciting daily activities are also planned. Forest School sessions allow children to explore their natural environment, use tools, create fires and take part in risk-taking activities – safely!


Prices, holiday club itineraries, and further details can all be found on The Old School Adventure Club website
