Extra Curricular Activities

During the course of the academic year the school will seek to provide a range of activities for pupils enrolled in Key Stage 2 classes. These will be available on a number of afternoons after school. The type and nature of such provision will be based on the needs of the children and on the human and material resources available to the school at any given time. Clubs and Societies embrace sporting and non-sporting activities and generally include soccer, mini-rugby, athletics, netball, swimming and unihoc, as well as providing opportunities for the development of hobbies, art, computers and music. The school also has a Scripture Union.

These arrangements offer children the chance of learning new skills, developing existing ones and enjoying sports and hobbies in an organised, controlled and yet relaxed setting. Self esteem and confidence may be built up by achieving success in such ways other than in the academic field. By encountering and working with others, co-operation and respect may be enhanced at the same time as skills and knowledge relevant to such activity are being acquired.

Every year, a report is written about each extra curricular activity.  Please click on the link below to read the most recent reports.


FOOTBALL: The Doherty Cup

Our first fixture of the year saw our nine-a-side team meet Harpur’s Hill in the first round of the Doherty Cup. A team of eleven children from P5, 6 and 7 travelled to the University on a very cold and wet November afternoon where they went on to win their match and will go forward to the second round in February.

Well done to all players.
