Hollow Lane Club

“Staff skillfully provide rich, vibrant and engaging activities. They continually seek to ignite children’s interests and challenge their capabilities.” Ofsted inspection report (August 2015), graded outstanding.

Hollow Lane Club was registered in 2005 and is a charity based at Ellen Tinkham School providing After School, Weekend and Holiday Clubs for children and young people with disabilities, and their siblings.

Our aim is to provide high quality care alongside a range of exciting opportunities and activities to enrich children’s lives. We work with a team of experienced staff that support our children and help them to access new and stimulating experiences. We have a
‘can-do’ attitude for our children, where everyone has the right to try something new, no matter what level of additional needs they have.

The Hollow Lane Club has its main base in Exeter at Ellen Tinkham School but also runs Clubs at Ellen Tinkham College at Wayside Crescent.

During term time, the Club runs an After School Club on a Monday and Tuesday from 3.30 pm until 6 pm at Hollow Lane and an After School Club on a Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30 pm until 6 pm at Wayside Crescent.

Once a month, we run a Saturday Club from 10 am until 4 pm, a Social Club for young people over 16 years of age from 10 am until
4 pm and a Siblings Group from 10 am until 4 pm.

We also run a Summer Club for 12 days during July and August at our Exeter site and also at Bidwell Brook School in Dartington.  At our Dartington site, we run a monthly Saturday Club from 10 am until 4 pm and an After School Club on a Monday from 3.30 pm until 6 pm.

Clubs are open to young people aged between 3-19 years.  They are very popular and book up quickly.
