The extra-curricular activities on offer are diverse and dynamic, the aim being to offer the children the opportunity to learn new skills for life and discover new hobbies and interests – as well as to pursue existing ones. The activity programme provides after-school care every weekday afternoon until 6pm and is split into two categories.
The afternoon activity programme for Years 5 to 8 takes place on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Its purpose is to provide a range of alternative activities for those who opt not to be in team sports, which take place during these times.
The evening activity programme in the Prep School (Year 3 upwards) takes place from 4.15pm to 5.00pm for Junior House and from 5.00pm to 6.00pm for Middle and Upper School. There are also some activities which take place after boarders’ tea from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
Most clubs that form the evening activity programme are run by the staff at Junior King’s but we also employ some external coaches, making full use of the expertise at The King’s School.
A diverse range of activities is on offer to all year groups, and the Pre-Prep has its own exciting provision.
Pre-Prep After-School Activities
We are very proud of our extra-curricular programme for the children in the Pre-Prep. The school day ends at 3.30pm (3.00pm on Wednesdays) which is when our next phase of provision begins, offering a wide range of activities, from fencing to pony riding!
Beyond the activities provision there is the facility of “late care” until 6.00pm
Prep School After-School Activities
Our ever-evolving programme of activities reflects the diverse interests and expertise of our staff, with external coaches brought in where necessary to provide specialist knowledge and give pupils the best possible experience.
