In addition to the main curriculum we have activities organised as a valuable extension to the school day.  Many of our staff give their time at lunchtime or after school to assist children in various activities.

As well as the Year 5 brass lessons, we also offer the chance to learn to play the guitar or a woodwind instrument, (paid for by the parents).

For further details of when parents are asked to pay for activities, please see our
