Extra Curricular Activities

We offer a wide range of extra curricular activities which are available at various times of the year for different age groups and include: netball, football, healthy cookery, gymnastics, dance and cross country.

The clubs are offered on a long term and short term basis and are run by members of staff or qualified coaches. Some clubs take place at lunchtimes (free) and others are incorporated into Gisburn Gorillas sessions.

We also offer the children in Yrs. 2-6 lessons in 3 different areas of instrument; brass, the keyboard and the guitar. The children attend weekly group lessons with of 30 minutes, which are approximately £4 per lesson, per child, with the group size being no larger than four. During the lessons, the children are given the opportunity to develop their skills on their chosen instrument, whilst also developing their listening skills and their musical ear and hopefully developing their musical appetite further with a wide range of different musical genres throughout their learning.

In addition, the whole school looks forward to the Christmas Pantomime outing and Yrs 5 & 6 have an annual residential trip where they participate in outdoor activities such as canoeing, abseiling and orienteering or have a cultural experience to London.
