    After School Activity Clubs

    We have a good choice of clubs available for families to choose from each term. Clubs range from drama and dance to sports and pottery. Children really enjoy the clubs; both for what the club is offering and for the social aspects.

    We work closely with our providers to ensure children get the best possible experience each week delivered by committed and quality tutors and coaches. Where possible these tutors and coaches are also supported by existing Woodberry Down staff members.

    Clubs run from 3.30pm until 4.45pm (unless stated otherwise). 3.30pm – 3.45pm is snack time; please provide your child with a light healthy snack. If your child attends a dance or sports-based club please do send them to school, on the day of their club, in their PE kit.

    Spring Term – Clubs can now be purchased.

    Please purchase via Parent Pay if you are interested.
