The Hideout Zone provides quality care in a spacious and stimulating setting which is located in separate annex to the main school building. The club is run by Woodside School staff.
The club provides the children with a vast range of activities to enjoy and extend their school experiences.

The children also have access to a variety to free choice activities including Lego, pool, table football, gaming (X-box and Wii), board games, colouring, Hama beads to name but a few!
The staff organise themed sessions around special celebrations and days, for example Pancake Day, Easter, end of term discos etc.
There is also a homework zone where the children can access computers and a printer.
