Bright Stars


Bright Stars is the after-school club provided by St. Margaret Ward Catholic Primary School.

We aim to provide a happy, relaxed, caring environment for your child to play in and unwind after school.

We are open Monday-Friday 3.20-5.45 pm during term time only. All children must have been collected by 5.45 pm at the latest.

Regular, ongoing  places can be be discussed with Irene Murphy, we currently have a waiting list for most days. However, we often have a limited number of short-term places available and these can be booked either on the day (subject to availability), or in advance. You'll need to complete a registration form before your child can attend the club, ensuring that we are made aware of any allergies and who is permitted to collect your child. Registration forms can be collected from the school office.

To book a place on a one-off basis, please phone Mrs Shaw in the school office: 0161 969 9852 to see if we have room for your child. For a regular, ongoing place, you will need to speak with Irene Murphy to discuss availability. Please be aware that at times we can be over-subscribed, so we do advise you booking in advance where possible.

Each session costs £8.00 per child (£5.50 for siblings) which includes a healthy snack.

We also  have an offer whereby children can attend from 3.20 up until 4.30pm for £4.50 per child, this includes a snack. After 4.30pm the usual fees apply. You can use ParentPay to pay for Bright Stars, just use your unique login details or ask at the office for details.

Further details are available at the school office.
