Wrap around Care and School Clubs

We offer a wide variety of clubs after and before school.  These options change from time to time so it is a good idea to keep an eye out for new clubs.  All clubs must be booked via the school office and payment made (where applicable) by ParentPay.

Mrs Gemmell and Mr Friend run a homework club. This club is available to all children Y2 - Y6 and is a quiet space for learning.  Children are invited to bring along their homework where they can complete it in a supported environment.  The club also offers an opportunity for children to ask for additional help with any aspect of their learning.  For many, this is an ideal chance to complete homework prior to busy weekends.
