The Wider Curriculum

In addition to our core curriculum, we aim to offer our children a range of additional opportunities to enrich and enhance their learning:

Music and the Arts

In music we offer piano, violin and guitar lessons from year 2 upwards. As well as this all children in Year 3 take part in the Sing On project culminating in a concert at Bedford Corn Exchange. Children in year 4 take part in a wider opportunities music project. In 2019 – 2020 our children are learning to play the keyboard. All children in Year 5 / 6 take part annually in the young voices choir at the 02 arena. In the summer months we also offer a drama club as well as a choir.

Sporting opportunities

A wide range of extra curricular sporting clubs are offered each term such as rugby, hockey, running, football, netball, multi-skills, gymnastics, boxing to name a few. We also have an external street dance provider who offers after school clubs as well as enrichment opportunities for each year group each year.
All children from Year 1 – 6 have the opportunity to take part in a sports festival each year with many children taking part in more than one festival. There are also festivals specifically for children with special educational needs. In Year 5 / 6 we have football, netball, hockey and rounders teams which compete against other local schools.

Other enrichment opportunities

Other clubs we offer include, sign language, Italian, French, cookery, gardening and chess.
