Being creative can get messy, so wear old clothes!

Sports
Available to Years 3 to 6

Experts say that developing fundamental physical capabilities and movement skills such as balance, co-ordination, agility, strength and speed, tactical awareness and decision making, make the biggest difference to children's sporting performance in the long run. Referred to as 'Long Term Athlete Development', these sessions are designed to give youngsters the best possible chance of going to achieve excellence in individual sports. Half of the session focuses on athletics, development with the other half spent taking part in their chosen sport. 

Table Tennis

Run by an England Coach, our Table Tennis Sport specific sessions offer a fun and unique opportunity to children from years 3-6 to develop their skills in, arguably, the fastest sport in the world. Following the accredited, ‘Butterfly Skills and Award Scheme’, with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards in Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Advanced plus levels, children are taught: strategy, proper play, rules, positioning, stroke techniques and how to win at competition level!

 

Performing Arts

Open to passionate performers who want to be part of something new and special. Boys and girls on this programme form a strong and friendly group focused on developing their acting and singing skills in order to bring a full production to the stage by the end of the term. Parents and friends are invited to watch the end performance and see them shine.
