Clubs

Another of St Polycarp’s strengths is the variety and volume of extra curricular activity available to the children. Under the direction of Karen Trafford, our Extra Curricular Clubs programme boasts over 40 different activities for all ages. We are recognized as a best practice benchmark by other schools in the area.

The clubs and activities run through lunchtimes, and after school, and are delivered by volunteer teachers and parents, and also other professional clubs and organizations.

Membership of the clubs is rotated each term so that the children get the chance to choose a variety of activities during the year.
