Extra-Curricular

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities for our children, which stimulate the thirst for knowledge and creativity, offering higher achievers the opportunity to further extend their learning in a range of activities. Opportunities include a range of sporting, creative arts, and curriculum based and activity clubs together with enrichment activities on Wednesday afternoons. The last two sessions on Wednesday afternoon offer an enrichment of opportunities to years 4 and 5 through their normal curriculum of art, design, technology and sport. A greater variety of activities are offered to our Year 3 class and are designed to offer them opportunities to experience 'taster' sessions. Currently in Year 3, children have the opportunity to take part in forest schools, golf, photography and street dance while Juniors in Years 4 and 5 benefit from a carousel of activities including photography, cooking, textiles and film-making. In Year 6, the children undertake a Social Responsibility and Awareness Week. Opportunities may also be given to take part in associated competitions or children may be permitted time off school to pursue their talent e.g sport or performing arts, when it is deemed necessary.

For this term's activities, please see below.
