Marsden offers a lovely, extended care experience for our students in an environment they know well.

MASC is the Marsden After School Club, our after school care programme for Marsden Year 1–8 students and their siblings.


MASC runs Monday to Friday from 3:15pm – 6:00pm, during term time. There are two session options from 3:15pm – 4:30pm or from 3:15pm – 6:00pm. We also run a holiday programme.


A trained supervisor provides high quality care on a day to day basis, with oversight from the Director of the Primary School. Our staff ratios are 1:10 with a minimum of two carers on site at all times. Marsden School's Year 13 girls will also help out as Assistant Supervisors, bringing with them special skills the students will enjoy, eg sport, art etc.

Our Programme

The MASC programme has a variety of activities on offer to suit the age group and energy levels of the students. There is a designated homework session each day, so your child's work is tackled by the time they get home. There are also opportunities to take part in art and craft sessions, as well as being physically active and having downtime. A healthy afternoon tea is provided.
