Extra-curricular activities

We offer a variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities after the teaching day finishes and during the holidays. These enable the children to take part, on an entirely voluntary basis, in a variety of activities, such as, drama, music, dance, ballet, football, art and textile crafts, computing, Latin and gardening. The selection of clubs changes on a termly basis. Clubs are a great way for children to make friends outside of their year groups; to work with different teachers; to develop their skills and interests, and most of all to have fun!
