Welcome to the Out of School Alliance

The Out of School Alliance (OOSA) provides information and support to individuals and organisations setting up and running out of school clubs, including breakfast clubs, after school clubs, holiday clubs and playschemes.

If you are thinking about setting up an out of school club, you’ll find a wealth of resources on our website to help you get started, with information about training requirements, Ofsted registration, staffing ratios and much more.

Already running a club? Then you’ll find in-depth articles on topics such as staff development, tax-free childcare and the GDPR, as well as our range of partnership deals to save you money, a monthly newsletter, and a vast library of activities to keep the kids at your club entertained.


As we move towards the end of this busy year, we wanted to share with you our Christmas closing plans.

Between 17th December 2021 and 4th January 2022, Out of School Alliance HQ will be closed.

Our phone line will not be manned during this time. The inbox will be monitored but the team will only be responding to queries that need an immediate response such as any website log on issues, password resets and so on. All other queries will be responded to in date order on our return to full speed in January 2022.

We are letting you know this as early as possible in the month so if you have any queries or questions that you’ve been meaning to deal with, please do this now!
