School clubs

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, both at lunch time and after school. The majority of these clubs are available for children in Year 3 and older. A small charge is made for some clubs where they are run by outside professionals.  Clubs vary each year and in the past have included but are not limited to netball, football, multi-sport and athletics,  chess, choir, and recorder club. please see our page on extra curricular clubs for current information.

Outings and residential trips

During the year each class will make at least one visit to a place of interest.  This will be linked to the topic being studied and is designed to enhance the children’s learning. Local outings are also planned as appropriate. Children in Year 6 have the opportunity to go on a residential trip for a week and Year 5 pupils participate in an overnight trip.
