Out of School Care

Enriching the lives of our young learners each day at our Junior School in Bearsden.

Our Out of School Care service provides flexible childcare each and every day throughout the session, from 3:05 until 6:00pm, for Junior 1 to Junior 6 children.

During school holidays, we have a link with ‘Summer in the City’ who run holiday camps at our Anniesland campus for children aged 4-13. Further information can be found at www.summer-in-the-city.co.uk.

Children have the opportunity to partake in a programme of activities including indoor and outdoor sporting activities, craft work, games, puzzles and countless more activities - all organised by our passionate child care staff.


High Flyers Club Vision

We provide a happy and supportive environment in which children and staff value one another, working together to create a happy childcare service.

We value diversity and promote an atmosphere of integrity, fairness and mutual respect, as well as having effective home and school links to enable us all to work in partnership.

A high standard of discipline is expected with the school placing an emphasis on promoting positive behaviour.

High Flyers Club Aims

  • To provide a welcoming and flexible service in which children are inspired, creative and encouraged to flourish.
  • To promote positive friendships among children of different ages and year groups and give them the option to make healthy lifestyle choices.
  • To provide child-led, appropriate activities, both indoors and out, that promote the development of self-respect, awareness of others and independence.
  • To create a nurturing atmosphere, establishing positive relationships between staff, children and parents, as well as fostering links with the wider community.
  • To provide a quality of service that is maintained and improved through regular monitoring and constant evaluation.

High Flyers Club Activities

Our children are given the opportunity to participate in both outdoor and indoor activities. Although the weather can be very unpredictable and inclement, they are encouraged to engage in active outdoor learning whenever possible.

In the playground, children are provided with ample equipment to take part in a wide range of fun games and activities, from ball games, hopscotch and skipping in the playground, to testing themselves on our climbing wall!

A structured programme of indoor activities include baking, clay modelling and craft work, while our younger children might want to get involved in imaginative play including the use of puppets, dress-up costumes and playing in our 'house corner'.

Our children are given the opportunity to do their homework or browse the wide selection of books available in the 'library corner', while the more active might choose to enjoy a game of table tennis with their friends. Our service also provides a wide range of board games, puzzles and construction materials, enough to keep all of our young learners busy and engaged.
