PE Extracurricular Clubs


Willing students will need to sign up for a club in the first week of every half term.

15-25 places are available for each club (see below).

If students haven’t signed up and the club is full, unfortunately they won’t be able to attend.

Students will lose their place in the club if they have not attended for 3 consecutive weeks.

Students will also now need to wear full PE kit for each club (or other sports clothing if their PE kit is being washed).

Students can sign up outside the PE office this week during their breaktimes, lunchtimes and any day afterschool.
