Extended School Activities


Flyers have been sent out for clubs this term to the appropriate year groups. This will be on-going, so look out for them in your child's bag and 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.
