Class Of Their Own provides high quality, affordable and secure out of school play provision for primary school children aged 4 - 11 years.
Since 2001 we have been providing the children of Sussex with exciting and stimulating play environments in secure settings where they make friends, develop new skills and most importantly have fun!
If your child is not attending the After School Club for a booked session you need to text the office on 07563 741 534 or call 01273 733337 to inform us of the absence.
Please also ensure you let the Club Co-ordinator know if your child/ren is attending a school run afterschool club before they arrive at our After School Club.
It is imperative that we know this information. If your child/ren is not accounted for and we cannot contact you to find out where they are, our policy is to contact the police.

We have also received some lovely feedback from the head at Peter Gladwin about our Ofsted oustanding: "Congratulations to all at Class of their Own. Wow what a fabulous report. I must say I was in lots over the holidays and was very impressed with the opportunities you were offering and the usual lovely staff".

Summer 2017 Recap
We hope you and your children loved our Play Explorers initiative, that we introduced to our Holiday Clubs for Summer 2017. This year we wanted to turn our Holiday Clubs into the create the ultimate child-centred environment.
This summer as Play Explorers children are encouraged to participate in diverse types of play - some known and familiar and others, new and exciting, and both created to equip them with a range of skills and experiences they can draw on throughout their life!
We want to thank everyone who has provided us with great feedback on Play Explorers.
With the Summer Holiday’s coming to an end it is time to get back to school and, as ever, we look forward to welcoming everyone to our Breakfast and After School Clubs.
If you haven’t heard, we branched out on Social Media!
Visit our Play Explorers guide!
Play Explorers is our new approach
to the holiday club activities and free play
opportunities we offer. We know how important play is for
children’s development and well-being, and that they explore and learn
so much through play. We value play so much that we are maximising the
play opportunities we provide.
Play Explorers introduces free play opportunities in eight Play Explorer Zones, and a new and improved programme of adult-led activities through ten Play Explorer Activity categories. As a Play Explorer, your child will get the best of both and have lots of fun.
Your children will step inside our summer holiday clubs and will be welcomed as Play Explorers. They will be encouraged to explore through play in an environment designed to stimulate their interests; some known and familiar and others which are new and exciting!

We are open at 7 locations this summer, stretching across Brighton and Hove, all the way to Shoreham and Lancing!
Ofsted Outstanding for our Brunswick sites!
Last month Ofsted visited our Brunswick Infant and Junior clubs. We’re
very proud and very excited to announce that our both clubs have been
awarded an Outstanding grade by Ofsted!
These are just a few of the highlights from the inspection report:
The inspector found our senior staff team were well qualified and served as excellent role models to the children; Children have a wonderful time playing and exploring in the friendly club; and the management team continues to raise the quality of the provision to the highest level.
We couldn’t be prouder of the great team and children at Brunswick Infants & Juniors!
