Extended Schools

We have lots of exciting Extended Schools Activities planned for this year. 

Activities for Primary Pupils


Multi-Sports after school club takes place one afternoon a week. Pupils in Years 5-7 can attend. We are joined by pupils from Thornfield House school. We have great fun playing games.



Zoe is our counsellor for the Primary Department. She visits every Wednesday morning. Zoe works with pupils both individually and in small groups. She offers a drop in service for the older pupils in the Primary Department. Referrals for individual counselling can be made through your child’s class teacher. 


Activities for Post Primary pupils


Multi-Sports after school club takes place one afternoon a week. We have great fun playing games.


Activities for Pupils and Families

Family Learning

We have a very successful Family Learning project which has been established for several years. We encourage parents to attend school and work alongside their child in a fun way. All workshops are non academic based. We enjoy sessions from companies such as Jo Jingles, Jump Jiggle Jive, Fun with Drums, Childrens Music Academy, Debutots and many more!

There is also an opportunity for parents to meet other parents and enjoy a coffee before the sessions begin.

This year we have partnered with Thornfield House school to deliver the workshops.

Keep an eye out for details of upcoming sessions on our social media accounts. Grandparents/Aunties/Uncles/Family friends all welcome to attend too!


A useful resource with information and advice on setting up learning at home for ASD students.
