Extra Curricular Clubs and Activities

Clubs and ActivitiesThere are a wealth of wide- ranging clubs and activities on offer to the children which take place before, during and after the school day, which complement and enhance the children’s learning. They provide fun, enriching and stimulating learning experiences which are greatly enjoyed by the children taking part.

Clubs are typically led by teachers who feel passionately that all children benefit from trying a variety of new experiences which they may not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in. These take place within a fun, structured and safe learning environment. Many clubs change termly, in order to offer a broad range of activities to the children throughout the year.

Sports clubs are both competitive and non-competitive, with many opportunities for children to represent the School at local competition level and sometimes at regional and national level. Sports clubs range from football, athletics, netball, cross-country, modern and country dance, rounders, cricket and yoga.

Curriculum clubs are many and varied and reflect the interests and passions of the staff. These vary in nature, but typically include clubs such as art and textiles, quiz club, lego and coding club. In addition to the teacher-led clubs, there are also a range of clubs provided by outside providers which incur a small charge. These typically include French club, football club, Streetdance and dodgeball.

The school has a strong musical tradition and musical activities play a big part in school life. In Key Stage 2, all children learn to play the recorder and there is also an opportunity for some children to learn to play an additional musical instrument, taught by peripatetic teachers. Children are able to choose to play a brass, woodwind or stringed instrument and many children learn to play the piano, guitar or drums.

We have two very successful choirs who perform not only in School, but also showcase their skills by performing in excellent concerts for the school, parents and wider community.
