After School Clubs

At St James, we run a variety of after school clubs for our children. Many of them are run by outside providers and there is a limited number of spaces available in each. For more information on availability, prices and dates, please contact the club direct or pop into the School Office.

Because we need to keep the children who stay after school for our various clubs safe and secure, we will be locking the playground gates at 4pm.  We would appreciate your help in vacating the playground before this time and collecting your children at the end of their after school club from the main school entrance near the office.  Thank you.


After School Club Information


More than just kicking and scoring, Premier football sessions are designed so that each child will leave having improved a transferable skill.  For younger children, we use football as a fun way to build co-ordination, agility and ball control, without the worries of a competitive game. Plus, every child scores a goal!  For older children, we help them build on their skills and techniques at their own pace through a wide range of activities and exercises. Our Activity professionals will also build on transferable skills and knowledge for them to take into any other sport they enjoy.  The best contact details to book/find out more information



From Monday 28th February, we will be starting a new after school gardening club for Year 1 to Year 4.  This will be run by Mrs Muggleston and children will learn about plants and insects and take part a range of activities such as planting bulbs and seeds, creating insect houses and bird feeders and painting signs and wooden planters in our school playgrounds.
