At Adlington St Paul's CE Primary School, we have many exciting extra-curricular clubs available to our children promoting a love for the academic, physical, creative, spiritual and cultural mind.
We ensure a wide, rich set of experiences that are planned coherently to nurture, develop and stretch pupil's talents and interests.
Clubs are reviewed and changed half termly and/or termly. Parents/carers are able to book their children onto the extra-curricular clubs via the school office.
Clubs that have been on offer last academic year include: coding club, drama club, comic club, creative writing club, story club, sewing club, art club, book club, football, netball, tennis, street dance, hockey, cricket, athletics and more! These are often inspired by our children.
