  • Children can choose different activities each term to experience as wide a range as possible. The majority of our children choose to stay after school for an activity every day. 
  • A homework 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.
