About the setting
Our After School Club at Thorpe C of E Primary School was established in September 2014. We care for children aged 4 to 11 years from Thorpe C of E Primary School and Pyrcroft Grange Primary School in Chertsey.
Space and Environment
The Gap Club has use of the school hall alongside various ‘break-away’ areas within the school. The Gap Club has full use of the outside play area.
Our Thorpe After School Club offers an energised programme full of physical opportunities for the children including exercise classes, sports and den building. We pride ourselves in creating an environment full of free choice and child initiated play especially in creative, imaginative and theatre. A homework station is also provided to encourage our children to complete homework so that time at home can be cherished as family time. To continue and encourage our ethos on ‘healthy eating, healthy minds’ Thorpe after school club also offer a wide range of cooking opportunities weekly for the children to indulge in.
The club opens for business at 3pm. Children from Pyrcroft Grange are collected from school by a member of The Gap Club team at 3:10pm with the use of our trusted and fully compliant transport services. The club offers two collection times for parents and carers at 5:30pm & 6:30pm.

My son’s have been attending Gap club 3 afternoons a week since Reception. Initially I would try to leave work early so I get them a bit sooner as I was worried their day was too long. I don’t bother anymore, getting them to leave at the end of each day is a struggle because they are having so much fun.The staff are exceptional. There’s a good mix of experienced older staff but also enthusiastic & fun younger ones too. It’s amazing – I wouldn’t be without it. Thank you Gap Club!

Many of our children attend Gap Club which offers a range of enriching activities and toys for them to play with. It is an important resource for our working parents to use and forming part of the Kings Court wrap around care provision. The staff are friendly and approachable.

Our son, Alexander very much enjoys everyday in the gap club. The staff are friendly and caring and really engage the children. There is a good mix of personal and group focus. Alexander generally comes home very excited about the activities that have been undertaken each day, which will include good physical exercise but also challenge alexanders creativity. Since attending gap club Alexander’s speech and vocabulary have come on in leaps and bounds. Most of all there is clearly a friendly and supportive environment that has been created for all the children. Thanks to the whole team for ensuring that Alexander’s energy has all been used up by the time he comes home, leaving us to just give him a small evening meal and put him to bed.

Danté absolutely loves going to Gap Club. All the staff really bond with him and in two years he has never said that he has had a bad day there or it wasn’t fun. I can’t thank the staff enough.
