Extra-Curricular Clubs

We aim to offer a range of optional clubs to suit different ages and interests. Clubs led by our staff are free to join whilst those run by external providers usually incur a small charge.

Upcoming after-school clubs for Term 1: Football for years 1-4, Cricket for years 3-6 and Musical Theatre club for years 1-6. More information within our Clubs letter.

We regret that due to the impact of Covid, we are currently running a limited selection of clubs and are working to build our range of clubs back up again – if you are an external provider who is interested in running a club at our school, please contact admin@chapmanslade.wilts.sch.uk 

All clubs are promoted via the Club letter which is sent out each half term. Full details of how to book after-school clubs are included in the letter. Please also see our Extra-Curricular Clubs policy for further general information.
