Activities after school generally run from 3.45pm to 4.45pm. Details of activities are available on our online system SOCS at the end of each term and parents can login to put their child’s name down for a preferred activity. Please note that some activities are restricted in number.

They can showcase their growing skills through a range of performances from community events and assemblies to school productions and concerts.
