Extra Curricular Activities

During the school year many extra-curricular activities are available to pupils. Such activities are commonly dependent on the willingness of teachers to organise extra curricular activities at lunchtime, after school and at weekends. Governors recognise and value such contributions. We also host a range of clubs in partnership with external providers. Parents wishing for their child to participate in such clubs will be required to pay for their child’s place in advance.

Throughout the school year, a variety of clubs take place including:

  • Imagination Gaming Club
  • Reading Club
  • Times Tables Club
  • Dance
  • Film Club
  • Choir
  • Basketball
  • Cookery Club
  • Gymnastics
  • Gardening Club
  • Football

Current Timetable of Extra-Curricular Clubs

Towards the end of each half term, letters are sent home via ParentMail inviting parents to sign their child up to the clubs they wish for the following half term. These letters can also be downloaded from our Letters page. The timetable below represents a ‘typical’ week from (1st November to 17th December 2021). Please see the relevant letter for the specific dates a club will run.
