For a session each week, pupils in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to develop new hobbies and skills which are not normally included in the main curriculum.  The pupils are completely free to choose the activities which interest them.  Each activity runs for at least half a term, but some require more time and therefore the courses are longer.  One set of activities is offered for Years 3 and 4 and different programmes are open to pupils in Years 5 and 6.  Each year, there are multiple choices on offer and can include:


  • Sporting Activities: Goal Ball/Boccia (Paralympic sports)
  • Outdoor adventurous activities
  • Alternative ‘regular’ sports: Girls’ Cricket/Boys’ Netball/Girls’ football/Golf
  • Fun Sports: Ultimate Frisbee/Dodge Ball
  • Official courses such as the ‘St John Ambulance Young First Aider Award’
