Wraparound Care

Early Bird Club

We offer early morning childcare before school starts. The club is open daily in term time from 8am for current pupils of St Ippolyts School only.

Children have access to a wide range of activities at Early Bird Club such as outdoor sports and games, craft activities, table tennis, board games and team challenges. The club is led by school support staff who are all fully checked and have first aid and safeguarding training. 


Early Bird Club is not a breakfast club, so food is not provided. However drinks are available and included in the cost (milk/juice/water). The club costs £4.00 per day.  Booking in advance is essential to secure a place via Arbor.

Bookings can be made in advance for a set pattern of attendance (for example for parents who work), or children can attend on an ad-hoc basis as and when early morning care is needed.

After school childcare

For after school childcare, our pupils can access The Cookie Club which is based at Wilshere Dacre Junior School in Hitchin.   Transport is provided, with Cookie Club staff collecting our pupils at hometime and the club provides care until 6.00pm.
