School Clubs

Throughout the year, the children are encouraged to lead lunch time clubs under the supervision of staff members. A list of these clubs is detailed below. We recommend that children show independence to sign themselves up. This gives our older pupils the opportunity to experience leadership and planning while our younger pupils can identify with the leaders as role models.

Our after school sport club partner this year will be Progressive Sports as well as local community sports clubs. Club letters are available to download below.

As the year develops, school staff will announce that they will be running a club to run for a half-term or longer. The themes of these can vary. Take a look at the pictures below to see what the children have sampled in past years.
