After School Clubs

We are very proud of the wide choice of after school club opportunities open to the children of Ripple Primary School. Clubs are run by a dedicated team of teachers and sports coaches and we hope there is something for everyone.  

Clubs run on a 5 week rota and usually start the second week of each half term.  

The majority of clubs are free of charge but some require a fee to cover costs. Those that require a fee are usually subsidised by the school.  

Every child is given the opportunity to apply for a club. Letters and application forms are usually sent out on the first week of each half term. Clubs that require a fee are accessible through ParentMail, our communication and money collection service. All those not requiring a fee must be returned to the classteacher who will pass to the school office for processing. Many clubs are oversubscribed but we aim to be fair in our selection process by giving as many children the opportunity to attend a club over the year. Please contact the school office if you have any club related questions or queries.  

We like to encourage children to attend as the clubs are a fun and social activity.  

Look out for information each half term.
