Extra Curricular Activities
We believe every child shines at something, so we encourage all pupils to take part in the wide range of extra-curricular activities and clubs we offer.
Most of the clubs are run by school staff as part of the extended school day. They include a range of performing arts activities, several sports clubs, and various arts and craft activities. Clubs are rotated and varied throughout the year and supplemented by visiting teachers who offer additional specialist clubs.
We encourage our pupils to take part in residential activity courses, as they help to build teamwork, resourcefulness, confidence, and personal initiative.
Workshops and theatre groups complement and extend the curriculum.
Here is an overview of our lunchtime and after school clubs:
In Year 3, swimming is also available in the autumn and spring terms.
Before and After-School Care
Our before and after-school care clubs provide an extension to the main working day at a small additional cost.
Children are looked after by school staff in a secure and stimulating environment, and participate in fun-based activities tailored according to age. Older children have a prep session supervised by a member of staff, before joining the main club later.
Our Wildlife Explorers and Eco club is affiliated to the RSPB. We get copies of the RSPB children’s magazines and lots of information.
We meet every Thursday lunchtime to discuss what birds we have seen during the week. We also are making an area of the school grounds into a nature reserve, complete with BirdCam, nest boxes, feeders, a pond, and a tree stump seating area.
We also look at how the school can become more environmentally friendly. Our next big challenge is World Oceans Day.
