We provide a varied range of activities at Bengeo School for children of all ages. Some clubs run at lunchtime and some after school. Current clubs include online game design, gymnastics, football, textiles, art and french as well as lots of sports and music based clubs and choirs . The list is constantly changing as we discover new activities for the children to enjoy. Although there is a charge for several of the clubs, we aim to keep this as low as possible so that the clubs can be accessible to all. Some clubs are run free of charge by parents, or at a nominal cost of only £1 per session.
As the clubs are so popular, they are often over-subscribed. Most clubs are run as a termly ‘block’ which usually lasts 10/12 weeks. Everyone is given the same opportunity to apply by returning a slip to the school office. Children are then allocated a place. If too many apply, children that are not given a place go on to a waiting list. They are then given the chance to join the club for the next block in preference to others that apply. Once a club is established, preference is also given to children who have not taken part before.
Parents receive a letter shortly before each block confirming that their child has a place in a club. Letters are not sent to parents if their child has not been given a place, to avoid unnecessary paperwork.
At the end of November 2011 Bengeo School was accredited by QISS. [Quality in Study Support] This is a nationally recognised award recognising the range of activities that we offer.
