Welcome to John Hampden Out of School Care

Hello my name is Sharon Cottle and I have the pleasure of managing the extended services within the John Hampden School. We provide both Breakfast Club and After School Club for children attending the John Hampden and Wendover Junior Schools. I have a dedicated team who enjoy the challenge of making everyday fun and entertaining for the children attending.

We aim to provide a setting where your child feels safe, secure and relaxed, where they can challenge themselves through play and enjoy building new friendships. We value good relationships with the whole family and are committed to working in partnership to provide the best care possible for your child.


At the OOSC we recognise the importance of play in children’s development, as Play Workers we aim to support the children in controlling and directing their own play. We provide activities such as craft, construction, small world play and role play each day and the end of term is celebrated with a fun week where we provide special evenings such as cinema night, magic with Colonel Custard and games night to name a few.
