The school offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for all year groups, including Gardening club, Computing, Netball, Drama, Animal Club, Gymnastics, Football, Street Dance and Children’s University. Our musical clubs include Choir and Musical Theatre and we offer fee paying lessons in Guitar, Drumming, Violin, Clarinet, Flute and Saxophone and Singing during the school day. Details of the clubs available are sent home during the first half of the autumn term. Children who stay for the after-school clubs will need a signed consent form allowing them to stay.
Looking after the environment is an important aspect of life at St Augustine’s and for any children who like to look after our school and planet the Green Army is the club to get involved in! We have a varied list of activities including planting, painting benches, willow weaving, watching an eco-film, creating bug hotels and learning about mini beasts, community litter picks, eco crafts, visiting The Green Backyard (a local community garden), cooking and taking part in treasure hunts.
St Augustine’s has traditionally taken part in the Peterborough Schools Country Dancing Festival each year.
The children attend Country Dancing club beforehand to learn the dances and then show off what they have learnt at an outdoor festival, dancing to a live band with more than 20 other schools from the Peterborough area – it is a wonderful evening! Parents and carers join us to have picnics and fun, watching lots of fantastic dancing.
After-School Clubs Timetable 2016-2017
The club timetable for 2016-2017 is attached below. This timetable is subject to change and any updates will be communicated to you by parentmail.
School Trips and Activities
Throughout the school year we will arrange for music groups, theatre and sports coaches to visit the school and for the children to go out to visit places related to their school topics. Some of these visits will be to attractions in the local area and others may involve a journey by coach. These trips will add so much to your child’s education; we occasionally have to ask families for a voluntary contribution towards the costs and hope that most parents will be able to support us. We also offer residential trips to all our pupils; one of the main aims of the residential trips is for pupils to experience greater independence and to improve their confidence.
