Child-Care Options

Huntingtower Primary Academy aims to support working parents who need childcare by having an onsite purpose-built building for before and after school provision.

The Clubhouse is run by the group of First Steps and Headstart Nursery Schools, the first of which was established in 1989. The Club House at Huntingtower Academy is for children aged between 4 and 11 years old. It offers before and after school care in term time. Children are fully supervised at all times and there is a wide range of activities for them to choose from. The staff are all highly experienced and well trained and they are registered with Ofsted. 


There is a full range of craft and art equipment, a wide selection of board games and computer games. There is a comfy area for just relaxing where they can listen to music or watch television or videos but all videos must be certified “U”. The amount of time the children spend watching videos is strictly limited. There is a dedicated homework area and the children will be encouraged to complete their homework whilst they are with us. The children also have access to other facilities in the school including the outside play areas.


Snacks and drinks will be provided in the Club House and if you wish your child to have other food, please feel free to provide extra in their lunch box.
