REGISTRATION

A registration form must be completed before your child can attend either club for their first visit.

Please return all completed forms as soon as possible once completed.

 

BOOKINGS

Bookings can be taken at the office or with a member of the Friends Together team. Whilst very effort will be made to allocate a space for your child, please bear in mind that this is a very popular service - the earlier the booking is made, the better chance of a place. Bookings cannot always be guaranteed if they are made less than 24 hours in advance. You will need to pay for places in advance with your bookings. Application forms can be collected from our school office or the club manager.
