Education in its broadest sense is not simply about academic achievement so we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities designed to develop creative, social and physical skills.
We aim to offer something for everyone, from chess to debating, from modern dance to gardening. After school clubs in key areas such as Music and Sport have a significant impact on our development of children’s skills and, often, their competitive edge!
Our charity fundraising is funding the training of two KA guide dog puppies.
Our co-curricular programme is a way to develop and enhance the work of the classroom, incorporating team and group activities as children learn to appreciate their own skills and those of others. This, in turn, helps us produce confident learners.
Almost all children are given the opportunity to represent the school competitively as they reach the Upper Primary stage. In Primary 6 boys play rugby on a Saturday mornings with girls playing Hockey.
All children from Primary 2 upwards are offered the chance to sing in either the Infant or Junior Choir and many also play in one of our music groups such as the Guitar Group or the Junior Orchestra.
Each term there is also a programme of lunchtime and after school activities offering involvement in such things as chess, gardening, debating, Minecraft, creative writing, cross-country, tennis, judo, football, Bikeability, news film-making (KA News). We are also lucky to have extensive grounds and our Gardening and Eco-Schools clubs are always very popular.
We have a very active Charities Committee and this year so far we have raised over £5,000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind allowing us to fund the training of two KA guide dog puppies.
