Throughout the school year, there are lots of opportunities for children to join a variety of clubs.
After-school clubs are provided by a combination of staff and external companies. A small fee is charged for some clubs. However, pupils who are entitled to free school meals (and therefore where school receives pupil premium) can attend clubs free.
Over the course of the year the following clubs are available.
Ocarinas and Recorders –
Children are invited to join ocarina club in year 1. This instrument is a fantastic stepping stone for those children who wish to progress to a recorder.
