We have close links with the Funfishers Out of School club

 

Many of our children transfer to All Saints RC Secondary School,  or Fulford Secondary, with which we also have strong links.

 

Our children are able to take part in a range of extra curricular clubs throughout the year including football, tag rugby, dance, gymnastics, French, German, netball, multi-sports, chess, newspaper club and Street sports.  Homework club, held after school on Tuesdays, for KS1 and Wednesdays, for KS2, is well attended and provides an opportunity for children to complete homework, who may find it difficult at home.

 

We also have brass, woodwind, piano. keyboard and violin  tuition during school hours from Mr Wilton and Mrs Trueman.  

 

Our children regularly have the opportunity to take educational visits around the City and surrounding areas.  Being centrally located, we try to maximise these opportunities wherever possible to enrich the learning for our children. Recent visits have included the Castle Museum, York Library, the Minster, York Theatre Royal, York Food Festival at the Guildhall, the Fire Station, City Walls, Barley Hall, Jorvik Museum, Art Gallery, and the Yorkshire Museum.

 

Swimming lessons for KS2 classes are taken at Yearsley Swimming Pool and our children take part in many sporting competitions around York.

 

We are lucky enough to have a wildlife area and school allotment within our grounds, which provide the children with many outdoor learning opportunities.
