Earning Potential

A Fun Science franchise gives you the flexibility to work as little or as much as you would like. You will be provided with all the resources and training to run birthday parties, workshops, holiday clubs and after school clubs. However, if you choose to focus on one service or to miss out one service all together, you can still earn a full time wage working part time hours.

For example, a parent may choose to run more holiday clubs so that they can take their children with them or more in-school workshops and home education groups so that they are home when their children start and finish school each day. It’s completely up to you! To give you an idea of how much you could earn with Fun Science we have included average profits for each service below. Please note, we have had to estimate some costs e.g. hall hire and mileage and actual costs may vary. If you would like to chat to someone about how these numbers have been calculated then please email us at info@fun-science.org.uk or call 07708 214840.

If you decided to work part time and run 2 after school clubs per half term, 2 birthday parties per week and 6 groups of fun days per year you could earn a yearly average of £31,866 before overheads. As a home based business your overheads will be limited to insurance (roughly £100 per year) and marketing. It is completely up to you how much you spend on marketing but we suggest budgeting £3,500 per year for online and print advertising. Below is a quote from Magnetic Milla just two months after launching Fun Science Sheffield.

I’ve not been pushing the marketing because I’m pretty busy with my PhD at the moment, so I am aiming to slowly ramp things up as I have more time available. Despite having done limited marketing so far, I’ve still got two after schools clubs in Jan/ Feb, both of which are fully booked, and four parties during this time period. I expect these to bring in around £1700 from mid Jan to mid Feb, before tax and business expenses. In March I have five science week workshops, with another school currently thinking about booking. I’ve also got a further seven workshops booked in for June. – Magnetic Milla, Fun Science Sheffield.
