We provide an increasingly large choice of after school clubs as pupils progress throughout the Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools, encouraging the growth of their character and talent. At the Nursery, children can choose from activities such as Yoga, Tap Dance, Drama, Art and Chess. When they reach the Pre-Prep (link to Pre-Prep clubs page) and are a little older, the possibilities are greater still. All clubs ensure that each child not only receives an excellent all-round education, but also has the opportunity to discover and pursue other areas of inspiration.

If you love art and craft, then join our exciting Art Club; explore the imagination and develop creativity in innovative and stimulating classes!
Art Club is a great opportunity for children to develop their fine motor skills and confidence, as well as the ability to focus and concentrate. Most importantly, children have lots of fun. They are able to express their creativity using various media: water colours, chalk, oil pastels, paint, collage, seasonal art work, weaving and more. Some of the lessons are also inspired by famous artists.

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.

Drama Club is intended to develop children’s performance skills as well as their confidence, articulation, communication, co-ordination and other life skills, and it is guaranteed to be lots of fun!
The club allows children to work on many different aspects of drama, ensuring a varied and enjoyable time. It encourages creative growth by giving them the chance to share their own ideas and perform in small groups. During 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 (Reception)
Each football session includes a variety of fun, fitness-based training drills and exercises, and then moves into football 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.
