Extra Time clubs are run by teachers or external coaches for a duration of ten weeks starting in Terms 1, 3 and 5. Students can sign up to these clubs by completing the booking form on this page and paying via ParentPay. Only when both of these things are done is a place allocated.

Our club programme is being delivered in line with current Government Covid-19 guidelines and our school risk assessment.

Spring clubs will start in the week beginning Monday 10th January 2022. Please note that if the club is oversubscribed by Tuesday 4th January, then names will be drawn from a hat; we will only contact you if your child does not have a place.
