The Old School Adventure Club is our dedicated Holiday Club and Before & After School Club. With big open space rooms, internal toilets, a self-sufficient kitchen to continue to provide healthy breakfasts and teas and a large safe outdoor play area, we feel that this is a very positive move! We also have access to a Forest School and outdoor activities! All activities can be spread out, allowing for social distancing to take place where possible in line with government guidelines.

The activities
