Other extra curricular clubs

Garsmart - School Shop

We have developed a school shop that , fitting with our Healthy School status, only sells healthy snacks.  It is available at breaktimes for the Junior children to access and is completely run by the children.

We have a school shop team with directors, a marketing team and sales managers. Each week the stock is monitored and one of the shop team ring to order more from Fruit to Suit.


It's a fantastic enterprise and whilst the children get healthy snacks they also learn how to run a business!


Mrs Rollason each year runs a fantastic and very popular drama group after school. The children play drama games and prepare scenes and sketches to develop their acting skills.


Mrs Hattersley leads a determined group of junior children who want to improve our school and do a great job of it too!
