Waverley Preparatory School & Nursery

Waverley School & Nursery

After School Club (ASC)

At Waverley, our normal school hours are 8.30am until 3.30pm. However, we understand that sometimes a pick-up at 3.30pm is just not possible and care after the normal school day is needed either regularly or on an ad hoc basis.

At After School Club the focus is on fun with friends - enabling children to unwind after a day at school. In fact, many children choose to come to After School Club rather than be picked up at 3.30pm! It might be something to do with the 75 different After School Clubs that we offer throughout the year!

We have two sessions available:

  • 3.30pm-4.30pm
  • 4.30pm-6pm

We offer an exceptional array of after-school activities at Waverley with flexible pick-up times available through to 6pm. Every day there is an activity available for each age group. The week is carefully planned to give a children a balance of artistic, creative and sporting opportunities for all ages.

After School Club takes place across our School but centred from our Community Hall which has the space for children to either relax on comfortable sofas and giant cushions, or take part in an indoor or outdoor activity. We also have a designated area for supervised homework. 

A cooked tea is offered at 4.45pm to all children staying after 4.30pm. After this, the children are encouraged to relax, read, play or take part in quieter games such as puzzles. 

After School Club (ASC) is available up to 5 days a week for children.  Our sessions are bookable on a termly basis, or on a flexible, ad hoc basis*.

Continuity of Care Throughout the School Day and Beyond

Waverley's After School Club is managed by our Extended Hours team who are part of the regular Waverley teaching staff. The children therefore enjoy continuity and the benefits of being cared for by familiar staff from early morning, during the school day and through to After School Club.

The vast majority of our clubs are provided by Waverley staff who are specialist teachers in their particular After School Club. A small number of our After School Clubs are provided by qualified, DBS-checked, external professionals eg. fencing and cookery club, to ensure we provide the highest standard of tuition and give children as wide a variety of activities to try as possible.
