Extended Schools

As well as offering various sporting activities at after school clubs, the academy offers many other extra-curricular opportunities. Staff run clubs are arranged throughout the year and pupils bring home registration forms at the beginning of each seasonal term.

Abacus Nursery and Childcare runs an after school club from 3:00 to 6:00 pm every school day and breakfast club from 7:45 to 8:35. Please contact Lisa Evans 01797 369287 for more information on the activities available and prices.


Clubs will run from Monday 28th January – Friday 29th March 2019.

The £5 charge for clubs is a one off payment that covers the whole time that the club runs.

All clubs will take place regardless of the weather – outdoor activities will be held inside when it rains.

If your child signs up to one of these clubs he or she is expected to attend every week. If for some urgent reason (e.g. doctor’s appointment) your child is unable to attend a session please notify the school office by telephone or in writing.

Please collect your child from outside the class where the club is being run or from the parent shelter if the club is in a hall.

Due to the high demand for a restricted number of clubs, they will be allocated by random selection. This is to ensure everyone has a fair chance including those children not picked up directly from school. There is a limit of 2 choices per child.

Here is your guide to selecting and hopefully being allocated a place.

  1. Read through the choice of clubs available to your child’s year group.
  2. Fill in the application form and complete the ‘choices’ reply slips, and return it to the school office.
  3. The reply slips will go into a box and be picked out randomly.
  4. If your child’s application is picked out then you will have an acceptance letter sent out with a request for payment. Unsuccessful applications will be kept on a waiting list.
  5. Pay for clubs using ParentMail before they begin.
  6. Your child can start attending their club!

Closing date for club applications will be Wednesday 23rd January (morning). Applications made after this date will not be entered into the draw but will go on the waiting list. You will be notified of successful applications on Friday 25th January.

Clubs will start the week beginning Monday 28th January.
