We charge £8.50 per child per session, with a reduction to £7.50 for siblings. Each session runs from the end of the school day until 6 pm. during term time only.

A copy of our insurance policy is always on display on the club notice board.

What does the club offer?

The children take an active role in running their club.

After registration the children participate in making a light tea. The children are then free to choose any activity available. Indoor and outdoor sports; football; cricket; snooker; computer time; board games; arts and crafts and stories, are just some of the activities available.

There is always the opportunity for homework and quiet play.

What do the club members have to say?

The Cool and Crazy After School Club is great fun. We get to play all sorts of games like football, rounders, lego, on a playstation, snooker and Buckaroo. In the summer we have fun on the field with water games. We have made tie-dyes, cushions, paper and planted some cress seeds in pots that we made. We have made pizzas and smoothies. My favourite part of the Cool and Crazy After School Club is having lots of people to play with.

Shinfield After School Club is Supported by Wokingham Borough Council
