School clubs provide leisure-based education to pupils of one or more schools according to their own educational programmes based on the interests and needs of individual pupils. School clubs differ from after-school centres mainly by the participants’ age and the type of activities. Their activities are destined especially for older pupils (approx. 11 to 15-year-olds).
The number of school clubs has been increasing slightly since their number started being monitored – in the school year 2012/2013 there were 526 of them in the Czech Republic. Almost 45 thousand pupils attended these after-school centres in the same year.
