Learning is not restricted to just the classroom in our school. We are proud to be able to provide a vast array of clubs before school, during the school day as well as after school to promote enriched experiences for our pupils. Some of these include: orchestra, choir, karate, football, dance, debating and even French club! Some are provided by staff and others are run by outside agencies and have a cost implication. If you would like to find out more about the clubs we have an offer, please speak to the school office.
