About Us... 
OOSC provide seven Out of School Clubs. We are committed to providing high quality childcare where children have fun!

Our staff team have many years experience running a successful club at Olveston Primary School (Jan 2007) and we follow the same format at St Helen’s Primary School, Alveston, which has been set up and running smoothly since April 2010, our club based at St Mary's Primary School, Thornbury (June 2011), and our most recent clubs based at St Mary's R.C. School Bradley School (April 2014), Cherry Garden,Bitton (Sep 2014) Frenchay (Sep2014) and Avon Primary in June 2016.

Olveston and St Helen's clubs were inspected by Ofsted in summer 2010 and were awarded 'Good' in all areas with some 'Outstanding' at St Helen's club. The inspection reports can be viewed at

Our club at St Mary's Primary School, Thornbury was set up in collaboration with their Parent Forum group. It opened in June 2011 with Breakfast Club opening November 2011. In May 2012 the club was inspected by Ofsted with another well-deserved report of 'Good with some Outstanding' awarded.

In October 2013 Cath and Alex began working with the parents and headteacher of St Mary's Catholic School, Bradley Stoke to open a new club on April 22nd 2014. This is now open and proving very popular with children and parents, and achieved another 'Good' Ofsted in July 2014. In September 2014 the two new clubs in Frenchay and Cherry Garden, Bitton opened and are now up and running successfully!

Ofsted revisited Olveston club in July 2015 and awarded a grade of Good, with Outstanding care of the children. Thornbury and Cherry Garden clubs have been awarded Outstanding in 2015 and 2016!
