The school has access to an After School Club which is organised by Playworks. Places will need to be booked at the beginning of the Autumn Term.  In the Juniors, a range of clubs are on offer throughout the year. Further details are available on request. These clubs are provided free of charge and run at the discretion of teachers. If any child’s behaviour falls below an acceptable standard, they will not be allowed to continue attending.
