Every summer term on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school, we have Athletics Club for all of Key Stage 2, organised by Mr Barnard and supported by other members of staff. The children are awarded certificates showing the times or distances that they have achieved at the end of the term.
Cricket club runs throughout the summer term on a Friday after school. It is open to Years 4, 5 and 6 and is coached by a member of Great Kingshill Cricket Club where most of our matches are played.
Throughout the Autumn and Spring terms, cross country takes place after school for all of our Key Stage 2 children. We run off site, through woods and lanes around our local area. This is led by Mr Barnard with the support of parents and staff. We are part of the Chesham and District Cross Country Association and we participate in 4 race meetings on Saturdays during this season, one of which we host.
On Tuesdays after school, Mr Wilson leads the Year 5 and 6 children in football training, and after school on Mondays for Year 4. The school takes part in cup and league completions organised by the Chiltern and South Bucks Primary Schools FA. We also offer a lunch time club from Years 2-4 which is run by Mr Mullins of Ross and Andy’s Soccer Club.
Clubs for Schools
Clubs for Schools lead several clubs during the week. Multi Sports, Gym and Tag Rugby are currently offered, all of which prove to be very popular.
Year 6 play on Thursday after school. Led by Miss Anstis, they train weekly and compete in matches against local schools regularly.
