Clubs and teams
We run a number of different clubs that take place before and after school over the academic year. Most of the before and after school activities we offer are sporting activities such as basketball, hockey, netball and tennis. The activities on offer change across the year.
As well as sporting activities, before and after school, we offer other after school activities. The school choir meets after school on Mondays, and we have recently started an Art Club after school.
The majority of our before and after school clubs are free to children and run by school staff. Some clubs are run by outsider providers, such as Soccerstars UK who run a football club after school on Thursdays. Outsider providers charge for children to participate in these clubs.
If you would like your child to take part in one of our clubs, please ask the relevant member of staff about how they might join. Details are sent home to interested children before the club starts.
Participating in a school team
We enter a number of sporting competitions across the academic year and many of our children represent the school as part of a team. We enter teams into competitions against other schools such as: football, girls' football, basketball, dodgeball, hockey, tag rugby, netball and tennis.
We have a selection process for those children wishing to participate in a school team. Selection for a school team takes place via a trial event, such as an after-school trial for the football team, through selection from PE lessons and selection from after and before school clubs. Those children who demonstrate a good ability and understanding in a particular sport will be selected to join the team.
We realise that there are often more children wishing to join a team than we have places for. If possible, we enter more than one team into a competition to include as many children as possible.
Lunchtime with Soccerstars UK
Each lunchtime a coach from Soccerstars UK works in school running organised sporting activities such as football, basketball and dodgeball. Different year groups have access to the coach on different days. Those children who wish to participate in these activities are free to do so during lunchtime.
