The school offers an unusually wide range of extracurricular activities for a Pre-Prep and takes these subjects seriously with dedicated and experienced teachers. The school believes that its breadth contributes both to the academic success of the pupils and their joy for learning.
Children can sign up for Dance, Individual Singing and Violin from the age of three.
Before School Clubs run from 8am.
After School Clubs are on offer from Reception and include Little Detectives’, Choir, Junk Orchestra, Master Chef, Adventurers’ Club and Football Club. After School Clubs run until 4pm.
The school has a very active football team with its own strip, which the children really love. Football Club happens on a Friday afternoon at the pitch at Lyttleton Playing Fields.
Around a third of the children learn the violin at school – it gives them a strong foundation for their study skills, such as concentration, memory and perseverance, and those who keep it up tend to do exceptionally well academically. The violinists perform in a dedicated concert in the Summer Term and have also performed at the Proms at St Jude’s!
In addition to the programme, the school offers support for Literacy, Handwriting and Creative Writing as well as targeted classes for English as an Additional Language. The school has a specialist Learning Support teacher.
