Welcome

Wickford Extended Services is an out of school activity programme funded and delivered by the Wickford Schools.  Extended Services is based at the Wickford CLC which is managed by the Wickford Primary & Special Schools to offer the children of Wickford a collaborative learning centre using technology and resources together with their peers from other primary schools in Wickford.

October 2017

Firstly thanks for a fantastic summer, participation in the summer holiday scheme was very high this year creating a great buzz around the town.  We will be doing it all again in Easter 2018 so look out for our newsletter in your child’s book bag and check online a couple of weeks before the holiday starts to start viewing and booking another fun packed, low cost holiday programme.  The scheme does not run in half term holidays or over christmas but some of our providers do offer half term activities which you can book direct.  Please view these on our facebook page.
