Across Dame B's our clubs and activities help children to gain new skills, discover new interests and to find new friends.

Clubs are held before school, during lunch and after school. They offer a chance to push boundaries and explore more activities than we can cram into a normal school day.

Parent information

In the second half of each term a list of clubs is sent to parents for each year group from Year 1 upwards. Parents are asked to submit their child's preferences, and club allocation is confirmed before the start of the following term.

The majority of our clubs are free and are run by our teaching staff, but a small charge is levied for some of those which are run by specialist teachers and coaches.

"The wide range of activities available adds to pupils' broad experience and is felt by the pupils to make an enjoyable and important contribution to their school life."
