Before and After School Club

Our before and after school hours club (known as ‘K’ Club) is operated by Mrs Sharon Breden, manager of Prior Heath Nursery. The ‘K’ Club provides supervised care for children who attend Prior Heath from 8:00 am to 8:40 am when the school day begins, and from 2:50 pm when school finishes, to 5:30 pm. The aim of the before and after school club is to provide parents, particularly working parents, with a flexible, secure, well managed and cost-effective facility for the care of their children during out of school hours, with the emphasis being on providing an out of school environment for children which is full of fun and creativity.  Further information about  ‘K’ Club and Prior Heath Nursery is available from Mrs Sharon Breden, telephone 07710 469729 or email

After school activities
We have various after-school activities including football, club energy, cookery, French, tennis, musical theatre and street dance. All clubs are organised and run by outside agencies and further details can be found within the School Clubs tab on the website.
