Our extra-curricular provision provides an extensive range of opportunities for all Primary children to broaden their experiences, develop creative skills and take their interests further.
All activities take place from 15:45-16:45 pm. Different clubs are offered each term so there is always the chance for the children to try out something new.
The Extended Day we offer is part of what makes us a unique and exciting place to be. We offer around 70 clubs and activities each term, encompassing a vast range of interests and hobbies. Staff are encouraged to share their own interests with children through after school activities and we encourage our children to try new things every term.
Some examples of our after school activities are:
After-School activities are as much part of the curriculum for us as English and Maths. We believe it is these new and challenging experiences which help our students grow and develop, as well as unlock hidden talents. We encourage children to bring their interests into the classroom, be that through leading a PE activity, using dance to demonstrate fractions or becoming a ‘leader of learning’ to teach classmates (and teachers) a new skill. This link between curricular and extra-curricular activities forms a key part of developing the whole child, and building the confidence of our pupils by showcasing and giving equal weighting to their strengths in every area of the school day.
In addition to the after-school activities programme, we offer after-school care until 6 pm. This is organised in the school houses (Buckingham, Balmoral, Sandringham and Windsor), to offer a vertical structure which enables older students to support younger pupils, and siblings to enjoy time together. We believe this vertical structure increases the closeness of our school community and the support pupils can offer each other within and across year groups. Our dedicated team of staff organise a range of activities for children across the age range, such as art and craft and Lego modelling. In addition, there is homework support and time to work on projects within houses such as the Inter-House art competition.

The Royal School works in partnership with Ultimate Activity Camps to provide activity weeks open to all our Primary children during the school holidays.
The camps are run on our school premises by experienced and enthusiastic activity leaders and provide children with the opportunity to have fun, meet friends and try new activities. The camps are quality-assured, Ofsted-accredited and offer 40 different exciting sports, games and creative activities each week. Please click here for further information.
