Extra Curricular Activities

Staff, outside providers, volunteers and parents give time to provide a variety of activities before and after school and at lunchtimes.

These activities widen the children’s horizons, improve their skills and allow them to participate in a wide range of competitive sports.

We want the children to develop healthy bodies and lively minds – and to get involved.

If someone in your family has a hobby they are willing to share with the children, please let us know.

Clubs that run regularly are:

  • football
  • netball
  • badminton
  • hockey
  • art
  • cookery
  • rugby
  • golf
  • cricket
  • dance
  • science

Our sporting teams have been particularly successful at a local and county level. 

Sporting successes include: 

  • Winners of the Quad Athletics
  • Winners overall of the Derby City Track and Field Athletics Tournament
  • 2nd place in the Derbyshire County Athletics Finals
  • Winners in the Sportshall Athletics — City 
  • Winners in the Sportshall Athletics — County
