All clubs will start back the first week after the May half term holidays.  The last club this term will be on Wednesday 27th June.


We have a large number of clubs running during lunchtimes and after School, with something for every key stage.

We are accredited with the Advanced Qiss Quality Mark for the work we do to support young people's learning outside School hours.

‘Thank you to all of the above’


In order to sustain the provision of Extended School Clubs I organise a wide range of fundraising events, which will be advertised within the News Section of the website as and when necessary.  A huge 'thank you' to everyone that supports us.


At the moment we run a monthly Barnardos Session, where staff from Barnardos and our staff put on Play Sessions for Nursery and Year 1 pupils.  Parents are invited to attend along with younger siblings.  These sessions give parents the opportunity to become more familiar with the school and give lots of exciting play ideas to use at home.  Currently I am looking at fundraising opportunities to cover the cost of this for next year, approximately £1,000.
