Home Learning and Extra-Curricular Activities

We run a variety of sports and clubs that build on in-class learning at the school. These help us encourage our pupils to find and pursue many different interests and talents.

Our extracurricular activities are based on asking the children what they would like to do and listening to their answers. A mix of school staff and external providers instruct and supervise the sports and clubs.

Some activities are run by outside organisations and may incur a small fee.

We regularly take part in festivals of sport and compete in the local borough competitions.
