Before and After School Clubs 

We are very excited to announce that we are going to be opening wrap around care in  school from January 2023. We understand that many of our families struggle with childcare and therefore would appreciate the option of before and after school club on site. 

It has it's very own base and staff dedicated to providing an enriching and fun time for the children. Please read the attached handbook for more details and contact our office for a registration form.


Extra-Curricular Clubs

We usually offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities at Shibden Head for children from year 1 onwards. We talk to children about which clubs they might like us to run.
