Trips & Activities

Extra curricular provision at St Peter’s is broad and extensive. We want children to find the things they love, to broaden experiences and opportunities so that they can try things they may never have tried.

Friday afternoon activities give children a broad and flexible opportunity to try new things from Beach club to Martial arts.

Each term, a whole range of activities is offered on a Friday afternoon, including:

Basketball club
Fun fitness
Beginner’s Latin
Card making
Hockey skills
School newspaper
Horse riding
Schools’ quiz challenge
Clay modelling
Indoor athletics
Soccer coaching
Martial arts
Squash coaching
Mindfulness & yoga
Craft club
