After School Club & Holiday Camp

Valley Hill offers a fun, high quality after school and holiday day camp for children aged 4.5 – 11 years. We currently provide an after school collection service to the following local primary schools:

  • The White Bridge Community School
  • Staples Road Primary School
  • St John Fisher Catholic Primary School
  • Hereward Primary School
  • Thomas Willingale Primary School

If your child currently attends a local primary school in Loughton, Buckhurst Hill, Abridge or Chigwell which is not listed, please give us a call and we can discuss setting up a collection service.

Staff collect children from school, escort them back to the setting at St John Fisher Primary School, Burney Drive, Loughton. Once at the hall the children make themselves a healthy snack from a buffet which includes some of the following, bread, crackers, rolls, pitta, cheese, ham slices, chicken slices, marmite, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, soup, pasta bakes, wraps, beans on toast, apples, pears, tangerines, oranges, kiwi fruit, bananas, milk and water.
