During their school life, children will have the opportunity to join extra-curricular clubs for sporting and other activities. The clubs and activities can change from year to year and term to term. They are offered on a rota basis to different year groups to ensure as many children as possible can access these clubs.
We do ask for a contribution towards the cost of running these clubs and the sporting clubs are partly supported by the Sports Premium Grant.
Some of the clubs on offer at the moment include:
