Lower Junior Clubs 

We run a programme of Lower Junior Clubs from 3.15pm to 4.15pm throughout the week. Clubs are allocated using a preference based system and pupils can access 2 to 3 clubs per week, depending on availability and preferences. Some clubs will incur a charge where we employ specialist coaches.  Children can also attend Crèche following a club. 

Upper Junior Clubs  

Pupils in Years 3 to 6 can enjoy a wide-ranging programme of co-curricular activities through the week each term.  Clubs are allocated on a preference based system which takes into account every child’s preferences over the course of a week.  

Activities run at the end of the school day starting at 3.45pm.  The majority of activities end at 4.40pm, however some run until 5.30pm, with supervision available until 6.00pm. A hot meal and supervision is available for pupils where clubs/activities finish at 4.40pm. 

The majority of Year 3 to 6 activities are included in Upper Junior fees.  Where activities require expertise from an external coach or company a charge will be made.  Parents will be notified of the cost prior to signing their child up to a club or activity. 

Prep, our home learning club, is also available every day for children to complete their work in a quiet, supervised environment. 

What our Inspection Report says:

A broad range of extra-curricular activities is offered by the school for pupils in Years 3 to 6. These activities offer excellent cross-curricular opportunities; for example, the painting and dance clubs. The pupils are very enthusiastic about these activities and enjoy the variety on offer.
