Co-curricular & Sport

A healthy balance of competition and collaboration, practice and fixtures form our co-curricular and sport curriculum

We offer an extensive co-curricular programme.

Children enjoy various clubs ranging from Chicken Care Club, Choir, Art, Sketch Club, and Drama to name but a few. Every child finds an activity that they will enjoy and look forward to taking part in. Our club's programmes take place before and after school, clubs and co-curricular activities are a key part of the day at St Margaret's.  

“On Tuesday, I have choir before school, I feed the hens in chicken club at break time and finish the day with cricket”

At St Margaret's we are passionate about sport, not only for its obvious physical benefits, but for the life skills it teaches us all: competition, winning and losing, teamwork and commitment. Children that have experiences and involvement in sport and co-curricular activities often have more resilience and can cope with life’s defeats and triumphs with more of a measured response.

The sports curriculum provides opportunities for three separate timetabled sessions in swimming, physical education and games sessions. Our co-educational sports are cricket, football, hockey and basketball, as well as netball, rugby and tennis. Our PE programme sees opportunities for children to develop skills in badminton, gymnastics, athletics and health-related fitness.

From Year 3 the children play fixtures against other schools as well in inter-house competitions.
