After School Clubs and activities

After school clubs are a great way for children to gain confidence, improve their skills and are tailored to meet the needs of all ages and abilities.

Children will experience new activities that they may not have previously had the opportunity to take part in.

Children who took part in organised sports or other activities, such as dance, at the ages of 5, 7 and 11 were almost one-and-a-half times more likely to reach a higher than expected level in key stage 2 maths, according to researchers from NatCen Social Research, Newcastle University and ASK Research.
