Extra Curricular Activities

"The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners." (SIAMS)


Extra Curricular Activities


We believe that extra-Curricular activities make a vital contribution to the all-round development of the pupils at the school. We provide a range of extracurricular activities throughout the year. Activities either take place during lunchtime, after school or at our Whizz Kids ‘Out of School and Holiday Club’.

We also offer different sporting activities throughout the year. We offer football, netball, cross country and multi skills clubs to a range of year groups. Coaching is either delivered by staff from the school, PE staff from Woodchurch High School or specialist coaches.

During the school week there are a range of clubs for the pupils to attend. The take place during the school, usually of a lunchtime, or after school. In some cases, they are year group specific.

  • 100+ hours a platinum award

For those who achieve the bronze, silver, gold an platinum awards are invited to attend a ‘graduation ceremony’ followed by a party or afternoon tea.

Wirral Mayors Civic Scheme

The Wirral Civic Award provides 5 key areas for children and young people to be involved in a range of challenging activities.

The award aims to promote:

  • good citizenship
  • self-reliance
  • service to others
  • personal achievement in physical activities
  • wise use of leisure time

Being involved with the scheme heightens awareness of participants' own value within their family and community and their ability to contribute to their own well-being.

Over the past 37 years the scheme has provided thousands of Wirral children and young people with the opportunity to participate in fun and challenging activities and also attend a ceremony at the town hall.

The Young Leaders Award (YLA)

Young people have the power to change the world. The ‘Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award’ is similar to the civic award in that it acknowledges how the children go above and beyond to develop themselves beyond the curriculum learning. The award is about empowering Young Leaders to transform society and to inspire others to do the same

The Young Leaders Award (YLA) is a fully resourced leadership and character education programme designed to be delivered by teaching staff within the classroom.

‘Whizz Kids’ - Out Of School and Holiday Club

The school offers ‘wrap around care and as such provides services to families in the local area beyond the normal school day. We have a breakfast club and an after-school club, for children whose parents need childcare.

The breakfast club is based in the school hall from 7:50 am to 8:50 am (when playground supervision starts) and after school from 3:20 pm to 5:30 pm. Our ‘Extended School’ provision covers a week at Easter and four weeks during the Summer break.
