A wide range of clubs are arranged by teaching staff during lunchtimes and after school, e.g. Recorders, Bells, Dance, Art, Homework, Football etc. These are usually free, but sometimes there may be a charge towards materials for Art, or costumes for Dance. The numbers will be limited for clubs and there may be auditions for some clubs, e.g Dance, or sign-up sheets (first come first served). These clubs may also change termly.
If your child really wants to join a club but you can’t afford the payment you are welcome to talk to the Head Teacher. Occasionally there is a bit of funding to help in these circumstances.
How to join a club
Listen out for notices in registers or talk to your teacher about how to join a club.
Forms for clubs run by outside organisations can be found in the school office, or downloaded below. There will be a joining fee and numbers may be limited. Again if your child really wants to join a club but you can’t afford the payment you are welcome to talk to the Head Teacher. Occasionally there is a bit of funding to help in these circumstances. These clubs normally run every term, but there may be some changes.
Musical instrument lessons at school can be arranged by parents via Surrey Arts. The teachers come in during the lunch hour and the afternoon and we currently have teaching for piano, Clarinet, Violin, Cello, Drums, Flute and all brass instruments.
Surrey Arts teaches music to over 15,000 pupils every week, employs 300 professional tutors and offers music lessons on all orchestral instruments in 220 school in Surrey. Apply online.
Pupils will usually need to have their own instruments for their lessons. However, Surrey Arts can sometimes advise about loan schemes. The school does have some junior guitars that can be loaned for lessons, please ask at the school office if you are interested.
We have started a list of families that are interested in a place at St Mary’s after-school childcare provision. If you have not yet put your child’s name down but would be interested in a place starting after October half term, please email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name and which days you will require. Those parents who have expressed their interest but not indicated preferred days – please let us know ASAP.
Once we have recruited staff we will be able to allocate places – which will be on a first come first serve basis. We have had a positive response to date so please let us know if you would like to have your child put on the list.
