At Oakfields, we place a great emphasis on extra-curricular activities and can offer pupils a thriving roster of stimulating pursuits to capture their imagination and compliment their lessons. Whether lunch-time clubs, after school activities or trips, our pupils have much to see and do!
We believe that education is as much about what happens outside a classroom as what happens within and our extra-curricular activities are a fantastic way for pupils to pursue their interests or try something new.
In partnership with staff, who provide expert supervision, our pupils will develop their growing sense of self confidence, become increasingly articulate and hone a wide variety of skills, be it through sports, music, the arts, societies or other key activities.
A list of extra-curricular activities will be issued each term. These have been extended significantly for 2013, to include Fundamentals (agility, balance and coordination) and Melody Bear dance classes for our Kindergarten and Reception pupils, Clay Craft, Arts & Crafts and Multi-Skills (a range of games) for Years 1 - 2, through to Boxing (non-contact), Gardening and Chess for our Year 3 - 6 pupils. It goes without saying that we also offer sport options for all - swimming, running, hockey, tag rugby, tri-golf, and music - individual tutoring and choir and orchestra!
Whilst lunchtime activities such as french and computer clubs are free, after-school activities are charged on a termly basis as and when confirmation of the club has been received.
We have a variety of school trips linked to the curriculum as well as a bi-annual PGL activity holiday for Years 5 & 6.
