Our Service -
Breakfast & After School Club

The Minster Schools' Children's Club offers before and after school care for children who attend The Minster Schools.

Breakfast Club

Our staff offer a variety of healthy breakfast options including cereals, toast and fruit.  Children eat and socialise with their friends and the adults. 

After breakfast, we offer a wide variety of activities including board games, arts and crafts, team games, construction, small world toys and books.  Each week's activities are planned around the children's interests.    

At the end of the session, the Infant Club staff ensure that the children settle into their classrooms.  The Junior School children are signed out from the session and make their way to their class teachers. 

Breakfast club opens at 7.45am and costs £5.00 per session, per child.


After School Club

The Infant After School Club takes place in The Nest; a beautiful purpose-built setting on the school site.  The large playroom is zoned into areas for creative activities, construction, a home corner, role play area and reading corner.  We also have use of The Nest's enclosed garden for outdoor play and gardening activities.  

The Junior After School Club is based in the dining hall where children can choose to take part in art activities, play board games, enjoy a book or complete homework.  The Junior School assembly hall is perfect for large group games, sports, dancing and film nights and the school's extensive playground facilities, including the nature trail, are available year-round.

Once the children have arrived at their Club, they may take part in activities which are already set out for them, or choose toys from our extensive collection.  Children may help themselves to a drink and a selection of fresh fruit.

We offer a light tea, from a carefully-selected menu which adheres to the School Food Standards.  All of our menu choices are designed to be both healthy and appetising.

After school club closes at 6.15pm and costs £15.00 per session, per child.

Fee and deposit payments

  • How can I pay?

We ask for all payments to be made by direct bank transfer.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash, cheques or debit/credit card payments. We do accept all types of childcare vouchers as full or part payment towards your fees.  Please contact us if you require assistance with these.

We hold two weeks fees as deposit which is returnable subject to our terms and conditions.

  • When do I pay my fees?

All fees are paid in advance, on or before the 1st of each month.

  • What help is available to pay for my childcare?

The Minster Schools' Children's Club is an Ofsted registered childcare provider; you therefore may be able to subsidise the cost of your childcare through one of the following:

  • Childcare Vouchers – Childcare Vouchers allow employers to help their employees with the cost of childcare.  Childcare Vouchers are exempt from National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and Income Tax for employees.  Please speak to your employer for details on this.

  • Tax Free Childcare - You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

  • Working Tax Credit – Nine out of ten families could save up to 80% of childcare costs through Working Tax Credit.  For more information call 0845 300 3900 or visit

  • Do I have to pay during school holidays?

You only pay for term-time (39 weeks per year).  We work out your fees over the 11 months of the school year (September - July) so that you can pay the same amount each month, regardless of school holidays.  You will be given details of your monthly fees when you register your child with the Club.

We do not offer sibling discounts although siblings of current attenders are given priority on our waiting list.

  • My child is ill and won't attend their booked session.  Do I still need to pay for this?

Yes, you must pay for all booked sessions, whether or not your child attends. It is very helpful if you are able to call us and let us know if you child will be absent for any reason.


Other Questions

We require 4 weeks term time notice in writing to cancel and to amend a booking.

We accept up to 60 children in the Breakfast Club each day (around 24 in Infants and 30 in Juniors).  There are 30 places in the Infant After School Club, and a further 45 places for older children in the Junior After School Club each afternoon.

  • Do you have a waiting list?

When you contact us to enquire about a place, you will be asked to complete and return an Application Form  Nursery Application Form and your child(ren)'s name will be added to the list.  If we have a waiting list at that time we will inform you and you will be contacted as soon as a space becomes available.  The waiting list is run in strict date order, although siblings of current attenders are given priority.  It is very difficult to tell you exactly how long you may have to wait for a place if at that time we have a waiting list.

  • Can I book extra sessions in addition to my normal booking?

If you would like to book extra ad-hoc sessions, you must contact us to check whether we can accommodate your child.  We will then ask you to pay for additional bookings in advance by direct bank transfer and complete a booking form.  Please find our ad hoc booking form on the useful forms page below.

Your child may attend a school-run extra curricular activity after school.  Your child will be brought to the After School Club by the activity leader after their activity ends. Please notify us that your child will be attending an extra-curricular activity.  Parents/carers are liable to pay the full session fees for all booked days.
