We offer a wide variety of club activities once a week, on the afternoon where the least sport is done to inspire the children to explore and create outside of the classrooms and find a hobby which they enjoy. These activities may differ slightly each term according to seasonal factors. Whilst children are encouraged to try to develop new skills in different clubs, if they have a particular talent this will be nurtured by the club leader.
Board games not only teach young students to learn and understand rules, but also how to work creatively and strategically within them.
