Extra Curricular Activities

Extra Curricular Activities

Outside formal lessons there are a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop their skills and confidence as well as meet and work with other pupils as they learn from new experiences.

Children can access a range of After School Clubs each term. The extra curricular timetable of clubs is updated every term.

Letters are issued at the start of each term with the list of activities on offer.


Pupils are given the opportunity to participate in off-site educational visits. These visits are designed to engage children in activities that broaden their understanding of the curriculum or will provide them with an experience they may not usually have access to.

Visits take advantage of local facilities such as museums, art galleries, and nature reserves as well as activity centres or attractions further afield such as cultural trips to London. Alternatively, focus activities may be planned to utilise the stunning and varied grounds within which the school is sited.

All visits or activities are organised by teachers who are obliged to conduct a risk assessment to ensure that all potential hazards are taken account of and adjustments made to ensure that the children will be safe and to maximise the benefits of any trip or activity.

When they reach Year 6, the children will be invited to participate in our annual residential held in an accredited activity centre. This forms an important part of transition planning for children’s move to the Senior School and the children always return with a great sense of pride in their adventurous achievements!

Children are also given the opportunity to take part in Music tuition. Thi take place during the school day and is delivered by a qualified music teacher form the County Music Service . See below for more details of the music offer
