The school has an impressive range of after-school clubs, some of which are run by school staff and others by independent, qualified coaches who will normally charge a fee to cover costs. The clubs vary from term to term and start two weeks into the term. Places can be limited for some clubs, so we expect children who have been accepted into a club to attend for the full term and to notify the staff running the club of any unavoidable absences.
Clubs this term start week beginning 21st January and cease during week ending 22nd March unless stated otherwise. For some clubs we buy in specialist people/equipment and a charge must therefore be made. In order to administrate the fees more economically, the charge will be asked for in advance. These fees are payable on application to the club. Clubs will run until 4:15pm unless otherwise specified. If clubs are oversubscribed, names are placed in a hat and pulled at random and fees refunded where paid. Paid clubs have to achieve a minimum number to be viable and may be cancelled if this is not reached.
