Farnborough Finches

Before and After School Club

We are excited to announce that Farnborough Finches, our After School Care Provision will be opening in January.   Our aim is to provide high quality before and after school care for children that attend Farnborough Primary School. This will be managed by Mrs McDonald and staffed by Mrs Wood (Deputy Manager) and Mrs Stockwell. 

The Farnborough Finches will operate in the main school hall and playground; weather permitting. The children will have the opportunity to socialise with children across the school, play games, engage in physical activities, have access to a wide variety of toys and games, including board games, role play, arts and crafts and construction.

Breakfast & After School Club:

We want the children to have fun in a safe, caring environment where they can socialise with their peers as well as spend time participating in activities that interest them. Breakfast will be served from 7am in the main school hall for those children who choose to attend the breakfast club. Tea will be served to children at approximately 3.30pm for those attending the afterschool club. The school’s caterer, Harrison, will provide our food. A menu of the provision on offer for the term is available on our club webpage. Please ensure that any allergies are listed on the registration form.
