After School Activities

A variety of after school activities are run, dependent on season and degree of student interest. Activity forms are sent out at the start of every term, and students are invited to sign up for age appropriate activities. These activities are either free, or charge a nominal fee. A mix of external suppliers, members of staff, and volunteer parents, runs them.
