After School Clubs

During the Spring term, there are several sports after school clubs on offer for our pupils including:-

- Multi Skills

The choice of after school clubs are linked to the school curriculum,as well as upcoming school competitions, to give pupils the best chance of success in a competitive setting.  



Swimming lessons continue in Spring. Year 6 will complete their first round of swimming before Year 5 swimming commences, providing the children the opportunity to gain crucial life skills as well as improving fitness across the unit.
