The Ballet Club is run by Regal Ballet, a team of highly qualified, professional ballerinas who have danced with some of the best ballet companies in the world. Exams are offered through the reputable Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, but the primary focus of the club is to develop children’s joy and love of dance.
Chess Club (Years 1 and 2)
At Anu’s Chess club we make chess fun for children! Chess is an excellent activity for children to improve their analytical skills and learn to focus and remain patient. We have developed our course over the years to encourage children’s remarkable progress whilst retaining their interest in the game. At the same time as teaching the tactics of the game we ensure that the children become good sportspersons.
At North Bridge House chess club we organise a prize giving chess tournament every term in which our young players love to participate.

Cookery Club (Year 2)
Cookery Club takes place every week on Friday. It is an opportunity for Year 2 pupils to discover the science and pleasure of cooking for themselves. They learn about the importance of nutrition, as well as the many different tastes and ingredients that make up the food we eat. We set the children practical challenges and encourage them to further their knowledge, skills and creativity.
Club Teacher: Madame Meunier-Murphy and Mrs Mistry, French Teacher and TA, NBH
Drama Club (Years 1 and 2)
Drama Club is intended to develop children’s performance skills as well as their confidence, articulation, communication, co-ordination and other life skills. It’s also guaranteed to be lots of fun!
We cover many different aspects of drama and encourage creative growth by giving children the chance to share their own ideas and perform in small groups. Over the course of the school year, original plays are created with the children and material is personalised for different groups. These plays are established through fun improvisation, then scripted and performed using props and costumes.
Football Club (Years 1 and 2)
Each football session includes a variety of fun, fitness-based training drills and exercises, and then moves into training, matches and weekly tournaments. Children are encouraged to progress at their own pace, developing their self-confidence, skills and mobility in a safe and happy environment.
The club is run by Danny Grant Soccer School, which offers a range of football classes to boys and girls from age 3 to 7. The team of experienced FA approved Football Coaches lead action-packed football sessions designed to turn energetic and enthusiastic youngsters into skillful, confident players.
Games Skills (Years 1 and 2)
Games Skills is a club for Year 1 and 2 children, taken by Mr Ferguson in the Pre-Prep lunch hall. The children will explore, enrich and develop gymnastic skills, including travelling, balancing, rolling, twisting and turning. They will also work on their group, communication and social skills by planning, performing and evaluating their gymnastics sequences.
Club Teacher: Mr Ferguson, Gym and Swimming Teacher, NBH
Gym Club (Years 1 and 2)
Gymnastics is an all-round sport that develops strength, agility, flexibility and co-ordination. The after school club at North Bridge House is an excellent introduction to gymnastics. Children work on floor skills (i.e. handstands & cartwheels), bar work, vaulting and trampette work.
For children who excel in these sessions and who are interested in progressing from school to recreational or competitive gymnastics, the coach will recommend the best clubs to join depending on location.

Italian (Years 1 and 2)
During this lesson, we will create a positive approach to the Italian language and culture and provide the basis for further learning Italian. We will be playing games, listening to songs and rhythms. We will go hunting for Italian words and sounds in a magic wonderland of fun!

Jazz Dance (Years 1 and 2)
In addition to many of our regular after school clubs, in the Autumn Term we are bringing a new and exciting jazz dance club. The programme is called JazzAddict and is relatively new to the UK. It is currently taught in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Macau and South Africa.
The programme is suited to any child who loves to dance. No prior experience is needed, but if your child has some dance experience, then they will love it just as much as those without any experience.
The syllabus teaches students technical skills, performance skills, as well as, creativity. All JazzAddict teachers are professional dancers with prior teaching experience.

Lego Build (Year 2 only)
Lego Build club will be held after school every Friday. The children will be using the WeDo 2.0 core sets which include motors, motion sensor, tilt sensor, and of course, a whole stack of Lego! They will be constructing different kits and then programming the completed projects using the school iPads.
The children will develop basic computer skills, work collaboratively with one another, and will face many obstacles which will allow them to develop their problem solving skills. Please note that this is a repeating club with the same lessons being covered in Autumn, Spring and Summer

Mangahigh (Years 1 and 2)
Mangahigh provides an online platform where students learn Mathematics via purpose-built casual games that balance fun and learning.
Mangahigh activities are always adapting in difficulty so that challenges are neither too hard nor too easy and is the level at which optimal learning takes place. All Mangahigh games encourage players to strive to achieve by repeating a simple step over and over again. Each game develops pupils’ ability and curiosity to observe, hypothesize, test, evaluate, conclude and refine ideas. Mangahigh games provide powerful contexts that often bring out the ‘real-world’ application of the topic, increasing the pupils’ interest and encouraging them to explore further.
Mangahigh is already being used at NBH Prep and has proved to be very effective.
