Clubs & Extended Schools
We usually offer a wide range of clubs at William Read Primary School and Nursery, but due to the current pandemic we are only offering EPIC Club at present.
EPIC Club needs to be booked one day advance of attendance. There are limited spaces on each evening, so book early.
We offer a wide and varied programme of extra-curricular activities in our school. Changes are made to our provision depending on the season and also to the children’s interests. Clubs have included hi-fives, cheerleading, drama and dance, karate, aerobics and chess.
The ‘Eco-champions’ club provides the pupils with opportunities to work together to promote recycling and saving energy throughout the school and in the wider community. They also visit nature study centres to broaden their understanding of environmental issues.
Members of the choir represent our school during the infant and junior music festivals and perform at St. Nicholas Church for the Carol Services. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents and carers to share this special time. The upper school choir also take part in the Celebration of Christmas alongside all other schools on the island and Young Voices at the O2.
Gym Trail runs in the mornings and offers children the chance to develop their fine and gross motor skills through a range of activities including puzzles, peg boards and moving along apparatus to improve co-ordination. Breakfast Club runs from 8 o’clock in the morning and has been very popular.
We have an after school club called EPIC which runs from 3.15pm until 5.00pm. Activities include, but not limited to, cooking, sewing, arts & crafts, painting, maths games, literacy games, educational websites, outside sporting activities, help & guidance with homework, reading and creative writing. You will be required to pay in advance for EPIC Club on a Monday for the days your child wishes to attend.
All of the clubs and extra-curricular activities are supervised by a qualified instructor or member of staff.
