Extra Curricular Activities

Education is a partnership with parents, students and the school all working together to reveal each child’s potential.

We believe that ECA’s (Extra-Curricular Activities) are a vital part of our learning environment and we actively encourage all pupils to make the most of the opportunities provided. Although most of the ECA programme is run by our staff and are free-of-charge, we do use outside agencies for some specialist activities which there is a fee for.

We offer a wide range of ECA’s and parents will receive the ECA options for internally and externally run ECA’s for each term by email after the term starts, along with instructions on how to sign up. Previous ECA’s include: Art club, fitness, camera club, cricket, digital art and animation, diving, filmmaking club, drama and dance, Duke of Edinburgh, F1 in School, eco kids, gifted and talented, fitness, girls football, golf, hockey, ICT club, coding club, chess club, learn to draw, literacy and ICT games, maths games, Model United Nations, netball, papercraft, recreational football, Primary choir, Primary Pop-up Council, Quran club, diving and much more!
