We offer a wide selection of After School Clubs and most of these are open for an hour after the normal school core time. Some clubs run at lunchtime and we even have some early morning clubs. Clubs run every day but some are by invitation only or for specific key stages. The clubs change from term to term and letters are sent out at the end of each term outlining the range of options for the following term. Examples of activities are: art and craft based clubs, a variety of sports clubs depending upon season, gardening, indoor activities such as film and board games and musical activities. We try to try to respond to children’s requests when deciding what clubs to run.
While we make every effort to accommodate all applicants, the clubs do have limited places and applications are dealt with on a first come first served basis.
To get an updated list of what clubs are currently on offer please follow the link to the parents’ letter at the foot of this page.
