Before and After School

School aged children whose parents are working, training or studying need safe care before and after school hours. Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation Active club, based on school premises, meets this need and provide a range of enjoyable activities for children aged between 4 to 11 years.

Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation is run by a local organisation. The Active club runs from 7.50am until school starts and from school finish until 5pm. (If booked in advance this can be extended to 5.30pm) Small teams of dedicated staff are responsible for the day to day care of your children.

Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation are really excited to start our Active Club at St Josephs Catholic Primary School. The aim and objective of the clubs is to give children the opportunity to engage in physical, creative and expressive activities before and after school.

All the activities will be delivered and led by qualified and DBS approved members of staff who will ensure the environment is inclusive, safe and super fun for all involved.

We can’t wait to deliver a wide range of activities for the children to explore and learn new skills.
