Extended School Activities


Flyers will be sent out shortly for clubs this term, to the appropriate year groups. This will be on-going, so look out for them in your child's bag.  If they would like to attend please return the consent form as soon as possible, as places are allocated on a first come first served basis and many clubs fill up within the first few days.

We have a large number of clubs running during lunchtimes and after School.  Most of these clubs are available for all Upper School and 6th Form.  Some clubs are advertised for a certain group or key stage, the other key stages will have the opportunity to attend later in the year.

Clubs that will be running this term are:



 Wheelchair Basketball (lunchtimes)

Flip Flop Flo ball skills (lunchtimes)



Football (after school).  Coaching by Johnny from GLL - this is an opportunity for our Team players to train in preparation for forthcoming Tournaments.  Funded by sponsorship raised by Anthony Wright

Lets Get Cooking for 6th Form

Art & Craft



Autism Support Group
