Afterschool Clubs: Monday-Friday until 5pm (£5.00)
Choose between Dance,Board Games, Outdoor Pursuits (or Craft in the darker evenings), Sport, or Film clubs. Clubs run throughout the year without interruption. We understand the need for reliability for our working parents so even if a club leader is absent we will still run a club.
One of the perks of being a small school is the flexibility to enhance our children's learning experience by adapting our planning at very short notice. For example, a visit to the Anstey alpacas, Buntingford library, Shuttleworth museum, the Cambridge computing museum and botanical gardens ... to name but a few. We have 3 staff who are qualified to drive the minibus so the possibilities are endless! We are visited by peripatetic teachers for LAMDA drama coaching, piano, violin and ukulele.
