Beyond the classroom
Children have a range of musical opportunities and we believe this is an important aspect for educating the ‘whole child’.
We have whole class tuition for violin, recorder and brass and our children participate in performances at Young Voices and the Cheltenham Dance Festival. Additional instrumental tuition is available in school by ‘The Music Junction’. This includes flute, violin, clarinet, singing, keyboard, drum, saxophone and guitar. Instruments can be hired.
Our school has a wide range of other extra-curricular activities available to groups of children throughout the school.
Our staff, along with some external providers, run clubs such as tag rugby, football, chess, cross country, athletics, tennis, art and drama.
Your Child will have the opportunity to participate in educational visits to enhance their learning. Recent trips to Warwick Castle, the SS Great Britain, Gloucester Cathedral, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and the Cotswold Farm Park.
In Year 4 your child has the opportunity to spend three days/ two nights at The Dean Field Study Centre in the Forest of Dean. In Year 6 your Child will have the experience of a week’s residential activity week at Whitemoor Lakes.
Your Child will be encouraged to participate in teams and the school is well represented in local competitions and festivals. These include football, netball, athletics, country dancing, cross country and rugby.
