How it Works
 
Places will be allocated on a first come/ first served basis and will be for one term only with further application for places each term.  In the case of over-subscription, to give all pupils an equal chance of enjoying the clubs, a waiting list will be held and these pupils offered first option of a place in the following term.  The exception to this will be the music club where, given the progressive nature of the club, priority will be given to those already attending and wishing to continue.
 
If a place should become available during the term we will move to the next person on the waiting list to offer a place.
 
Payment
 
The cost of clubs will be invoiced to you on a termly basis.  If your child is allocated a place for one of the clubs and then subsequently drops out, you will be charged for the whole term.
 
Application
 

If you are interested in applying for a place in any of the clubs, please complete the form below asap and by 10am on Friday 7th August at the latest.  Please note that clubs will not run unless a minimum number of 7 pupils apply for a place.
