We are extremely proud of the extra-curricular activities that we provide at Bollin Primary School and we have an extensive range of activities provided both by our staff and outsourced clubs. We encourage lots of extra-curricular activities to enrich the curriculum and children's learning; to broaden their experiences, develop creative skills and take their interests further.
Different clubs are offered each term so there is always the chance for the children to try out something new. The list of clubs is ever changing but includes:
- Table Tennis
Every week in STEM Club we take part in fun activities that include aspects of science, technology, engineering and maths. Each week the children are faced with a challenge, taking inspiration from a real life problem or context. These activities allow the children to design, test and evaluate, work as a team, consider environmental impacts and have a lot of fun!

Our Drama Club runs after school on Thursdays for children from Year 3 to Year 6. It involves a variety of games, role play and improvisation which give children an opportunity to take the lead in a different setting from their class, mixes the age groups and helps to build confidence. It is also fun!
The club is open to children from Year 1 - 4 on a Thursday and takes place in Mrs Howitt’s classroom. Children take part in planning a design and selecting plants for Arley Hall Garden Festival in the summer term. They also make decorations and flower arrangements. Children are involved in growing plants from seeds and bulbs, taking cuttings and the day to day care of care of plants including watering and weeding. Our aim is to develop some basic skills and knowledge in order to foster a love of gardening.
Book Club for children in Years 5 and 6 takes place every Thursday after school. We get together for an hour and share a fantastic read! Our latest page-turner has been The Longest Night of Charlie Noon by Christopher Edge. We have been enchanted by the storyline and spent time discussing it, acting it out and even using instruments to bring a scary scene to life - there’s much more to Book Club.
We also offer private tuition in a variety of musical instruments, delivered by peripatetic music teachers.
