On top of all the school's regular curriculum, the school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
In a typical week at school, extra-curricular activities include; Cookery, Art and Design, Craft, Problem Solving and Design Technology, Drama, Chess, Performing Arts, Recorder, Sports, Dance, Ballet, Football, ICT, Choir, Flute and Construction.
Homework club is also offered after school every evening and is supervised by a teacher.
Every year the school organises a 4 day trip for years 5 and 6 to the PGL centre in Ross-on-Wye. The children take part in activities such as; Climbing, Wrafting, Abseiling, Jacobs Ladder, Orienteering, Trapeze, Challenge Course, Canoeing, Kayaking, Zip Wire and Mountain Boarding.
Although the weather has not been kind for the past few years, the children are still able to really enjoy themselves. We think it provides them with a fantastic opportunity to bond one last time, before we say goodbye to the year 6's in July.
Swimming and Gym
All the children from Years 1 to 6 receive 24 one hour swimming lessons per year at Dursley Pool. The children are divided into four groups depending on ability and each group is taught by a fully qualified swimming instructor. The children work towards their Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Water Skills Awards and enjoy the Swimming Gala at the end of each academic year. By the time the children leave the school, they are proficient swimmers, many also having completed life-saving courses.
The children also have the opportunity to use Dursley Pool's state-of-the-art gym. The gym comprises of spin bikes, vewdoo boards, cross trainers, treadmills, a multigym and free weights. The children are supervised by a qualified instructor who teaches them not only how to use the equipment but the importance of leading a fit and healthy lifestyle.
