Out of School Alliance - Help and Support for Out of School Clubs
join today


The Out of School Alliance (OOSA) provides information and support to individuals and organisations setting up and running out of school clubs, including breakfast clubs, after school clubs, holiday clubs and playschemes.

Setting up a club

If you are thinking about setting up a club, we have everything you need to get you started, including information about qualifications, staffing, premises and Ofsted registration. We even have packs of template documentation to save you time in inventing your own.

Up and running

With your club already up and running, you'll find our in-depth articles, on issues such as the use of photography in clubs, parental responsibility and transporting children, essential. Or visit our members' lounge to share ideas with other clubs and enjoy.

Working in a club?

If you work in an out of school club you can keep up to date with the latest developments in the sector with our newsletter. Our library of activity ideas - all tested on real children - will keep things fresh at your club, and if you are looking for a change.
