Athletics and Football are offered as After School Clubs. .
This hugely popular club gives our children the opportunity to develop their physical skills of speed, agility and balance by controlling or tracking a ball and introduces them to strategic thinking and collaborative working whilst having fun, building their self-esteem and fostering the joy of participating in team games from a young age.
Children have a separate uniform for these sessions
The children are introduced to a range of athletic disciplines; they can try sprinting to relay running, long jump, high jump and triple jump and shot put, javelin and discus throwing.
