About LASK

LASK is a private business, working on-site and in partnership with schools across Northamptonshire.  With demand within the area for after school and holiday clubs, our service opened in April 2012 at Our Lady's RC Primary School.


LASK is now owned by Patrick Franks, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience, after running a thriving children's sports coaching business for over 20 years.  Patrick is a level 3 trained first aider and holds an enhanced DBS certificate (endorsed by Ofsted) . Patrick likes to be 'hands on' and works alongside the Club Manager's Rita Sailopal, April Drake and Lydia Kettaoui, ensuring that the operation of the clubs run smoothly.  Patrick enjoys engaging in activities/sports with the children and he even helps with snack!


The Ofsted registered provider is Patrick Franks.
