Extracurricular Activities

We offer a range of additional services, starting with a breakfast club at 7:55am, a tea time club immediately after school and an extra-curricular programme which continues until 5:45pm daily.  In short, the School is run by the community, for the community. 

Our overriding aim is to provide a programme of activities which capture the aptitudes and interests of the children in our care.  With this in mind, the Trust makes provision for a range of booster and enrichment activities in the school holidays.  This is an opportunity for children to enrich their learning, try out new things, have fun and meet friends.
