Clubs

The extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities offered to pupils promotes their personal development, sporting excellence and cultural enrichment.

 

We strongly encourage pupils to lead clubs and activities for others. Pupils have a well-developed sense of responsibility and the opportunity to run a club is a unique aspect of Churchfields Junior School.
