We run a variety of after-school clubs across the week, providing over 400 places. The clubs range from sports to arts & crafts and provide a variety of enrichment opportunities for our children beyond the normal curriculum. We continue to partner with KDW Sports to provide high quality coaching opportunities for children across the school, and have drawn upon the many talents and skills of our staff to offer a wide range of activities which continue to prove hugely popular.
Spring term 2024
Autumn clubs will finish on Friday 15th December. Registration for Spring term clubs is now open (please see below for details). All of our clubs are subject to our After-School Clubs Guidance and Procedures (please see the document at the bottom of the page).
A timetable of all the clubs running is below, including the dates that they will run.
Please see the links below for the Spring 2024 After-School Clubs registration forms. This round of clubs will begin in the week of 15th January. There will be 9 sessions in total across the Spring term.
The deadline to apply is 3pm on Monday 11th December. You will receive an email confirming which place(s) your child has been allocated before the end of the Autumn term.
As always, we expect demand to be very high for clubs. We will always try to allocate first preferences, but sometimes this isn’t possible. There were a very small number of children who missed out on a club in the Autumn term who will be given priority this term; we have a record of who these children are but please make sure you also apply in the normal way by filling in a registration form.
The full timetable of clubs for the Spring term is attached. Where possible, we have moved things around to give children the opportunity to attend different clubs that fit in with their (and your!) busy schedules.
The cost of clubs is increasing this year to £2.20 a session (£22 for the term). The cost had remained the same at £2 per session for the previous three years, but to enable us to continue providing the range and number of clubs that are available at The Winns, we have had to make the increase.
We are hoping to be able to reintroduce our choir rehearsals for KS2 children later in the term – as soon as we have further details, we will pass them on to you. Please see below for a brief description of each club to help your child decide what they might want to attend.
Multisports sessions (run by our experienced coaches from KDW Sports) Reception, Y1, Y2

Ideal for children who want to develop their skills in these sports under expert guidance from our coaches. Friendly competition is introduced in an inclusive environment.

This mid-week club will provide the children with a calm, relaxing space to resettle and re-centre. The children will develop their sense of wellbeing and learn about the importance of emotional good health through a range of activities such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness activities and focused discussions.
