Here at The Croft, we deliver a wide range of after school clubs from Performing Arts to Netball. All of which are aimed at giving our pupils the best experience they could receive within afterschool clubs, allowing them to develop their individual skills and passions.

Various clubs run during different terms and this year we have had the pleasure of having outside companies delivering enriching experiences for children across the school. This includes Premier Sport who facilitate boys and girls football and basketball clubs.

We engage with the Forest School program which gives children the chance to explore and experience outdoors activities such as roasting marshmallows, team building games and orienteering. We also have outside professionals producing an exciting performance-based program through a performing arts and dance club which is available to children across the key stages.

These clubs help children to build on their confidence, imagination, team work, coordination, focus, creativity and many other transferable skills which they can use throughout their schooling years and beyond. We also have a Martial Arts club which runs for children of all levels.

As a school, the staff run other extra-curricular clubs throughout the year. Netball runs on a termly basis with children from KS2-they are developing the skills needed to be a successful part of the team. This team also aims to play games against other schools. We have a range of academic clubs throughout the year such as, Maths club, Reading club and French club.

After another successful year of after school clubs, we are happy to say we have lots more planned for this year. We have teamed up with Premier Sports, who have already started their dance and fencing clubs. Over the year they will offer a range of sports. These clubs will have a charge due to external coaches coming in.

French Club for Years 1-4 – This club runs on Monday lunchtimes for 30 mins per session. Each session can accommodate up to 10 children a session, with 2 sessions a lunchtime taking place. Each session costs £4 per child.

Martial Arts and Premier sports are paid directly to the external agency and all others are paid on ParentPay.
