We offer an afterschool club for children in Years 4, 5 & 6 at Oaks International School.
We offer afterschool (for Years 2, and 3) and holiday club for children attending Queen Emma Primary School from their sister school site Queen Edith’s Primary School.
If your child is starting reception or Year 1, Queen Emma Primary offers an afterschool club in the school nursery (due to long waiting lists). Please contact the school reception on email@example.com.
Children in Years 4, 5, and 6 make their own way from their classes to the meeting point inside the school (Atrium), from where they are collected. Children in Years 2, and 3 are collected from their classrooms. Our staff will go through the daily register to ensure all children have been collected, before walking back to Oaks International School (the former) and Queen Edith's Primary School (the latter) where the afterschool clubs are based.
Cambridge Kids Club @ Oaks
We operate the out of school club from Oaks International School and use two areas; the Main Hall and a classroom. We have a quiet area were children can do their homework or simply relax should they wish too. Within the school there's a lovely outside play area and we also have easy access to Cherry Hinton Park. Like all our other clubs we operate based on Free Play and children have the choice on what activities they wish to do.
Meet our Play Leader: Leandros
Club Address: Cherry Hinton Hall Lodge, Cherry Hinton Rd, Cambridge CB1 8DW
Location in school
You can find us at the back of the school building, close by the ponds. Please ring the doorbell and a staff member will come to welcome you.
Parking is available on the Cherry Hinton park site.
What the club offers:
We are a self-directed PLAY based provision.
“Play is a process that is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. That is, children and young people determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests, in their own way for their own reasons.”
This is very different from the classroom environment, which can be (and sometimes needs to be) a very structured environment. We believe that after a long day at school or term of learning, children want to come to us to have fun and freedom in an unstructured self motivated way. Children will learn skills that they need in the growing up process, but in a different way to school.
The Breakfast Club @ Queen Edith's
Breakfast School Club operates from 7.45am to 9am, children will be escorted to Queen Emma Primary School Via a walking bus
Breakfast: We offer children a choice of a healthy breakfast each morning, which usually consists of a mix of Cereal, Milk, Fruit, Toast, Crumpets and water

The holiday club operates from 8am – 6pm with a full and varied programme of activities and trips. Each week has a theme to it and the activities and outings are based around that theme.
