Extra Curricular Activities

Extending the Learning

We have high expectations of our pupils, challenging them to achieve their full potential, but believe that education is about more than just academic success.

Part of becoming a full rounded person is having the opportunity for self expression. In order to help achieve this we place a strong emphasis on sport, art, drama and music.

We have a strong sporting tradition and offer a full range of physical activities. Our teams compete at a local and regional level, often enjoying considerable success.

The school has two large playgrounds which are equipped for tennis, netball and basketball, and use of the extensive regatta field at Dale End park. We have a trim trail for children to explore during breaktimes. Older children also have swimming lessons in the summer term.

Staff and outside organisations run popular clubs after school. These vary on a seasonal basis and can include football, rugby, cross country and cycling.

We have a school choir and use music in many areas of education.

As children learn in many different ways, each class makes several day trips out every year. These include places as varied as the local mosque, pond dipping, museums, art galleries and even the seaside. Older pupils have the opportunity to take extended visits and residential stays.
