We are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of before/after-school clubs. Please ask at the school office for the current list.  

Sports Clubs

These generally include: judo, rugby, netball, tennis, frisbee, water-polo, tri-golf and ‘quad kids’ athletics, and we compete in a range of fixtures both in and outside of school.

We are very proud of our sporting successes and the ever-increasing percentage of children who take part in a wide range of sports, leading us to achieve the Schools Games Gold Award this year.

Other Clubs

We compete in local and national Maths competitions against other schools and run a Robotics and Coding Club for Years 5 and 6. With regard to music, we offer orchestra and choir, and a Recorder Club. We can also help facilitate Musical Instrument lessons - strings, woodwind, keyboard, guitar and drums.  

Previously we have also offered Cooking, Gardening, Science and Art Clubs.
