Our After School Club (ASC) runs from 3.35 pm - 5.30 pm (Monday - Friday) to provide affordable childcare to help balance work and family commitments. It is run by Jo Forrest and Julie Auty. Both Jo and Julie are qualified teaching assistants with years of experience between them. They have been successfully running our ASC since 2013.
Activities and Events
A programme of activities will run each week changing on a half termly basis. At Lowther we consider it essential that children, who have spent a full day at school, have lots of fun at ASC. We really want them to enjoy being there. While we take account of the school curriculum in designing the activities, the aim is not to provide extra teaching.
||Art & Craft
||Potions & Mixtures
Materials and facilities will encourage children to be as creative as possible within these broad themes. The newsletter below gives more details for each set of activities for the half term.
When the weather permits we aim to take the children outside to play games and be involved in creative play in the fresh air.
The provision of a healthy snack provided by our wonderful kitchen staff is included in the fee and will be served at 4 pm.

As the club operates when school staff may have left, it makes sense for some information to be held by ASC staff. We ask for a registration form (link below) to be completed to ensure that we know:
- how to contact parents;
- who to contact in an emergency;
- who is authorised to collect your child / children;
- any medical conditions in order for us to look after your child;
ASC is run by Lowther Endowed School so the school's policies and procedures apply.
