Fordcombe School has a range of before-school, in-school and after-school clubs: a full list can be viewed below. These clubs will be altered through the year so please keep an eye out for changes or new additions. Some clubs are run by members of staff, some by outside providers and some by keen volunteers. Some clubs are free whilst there is a charge for others. Please read the information carefully to check who money should be payable to in the case of clubs run by outside providers.
There is wrap around care in the form of Breakfast and After School Clubs and Holiday Clubs for children aged 0 – 11 years available at the Kinderversity centre in Fordcombe Village hall (just across the green from the school). They are open from 8am until 6pm weekdays, 51 weeks of the year.
"I think for a small school Fordcombe offers a very good range of before and after school clubs."
"We are very grateful for such a variety of clubs and mostly free due to the outstanding commitment of parents and others who give their time and talents to the children. The paid clubs are all brilliant too."
If you would like to run a club yourself, please come and speak to someone in the school office and we will try and arrange something for the future.
"There are a great range of sporting clubs and my children have pretty much joined every one. From chess, coding and cross country running to dodgeball, football, hockey and netball and art"
We have already seen some fantastic work being created by pupils in the school Art Club across the past 6 weeks, below are some examples of their session focussing on still art inspiration using inks and crayons.
Football and Netball clubs are bookable directly with James Charlton via email email@example.com
In addition to the pre and post school activities the Fordcombe team regularly run creative and collaborative opportunities for the children during their lunch breaks. These can range from art sessions (where the materials for specific projects are made available to any children that wish to participate (ranging from making crowns, to collecting leaves and creating collages).
Of the lunchtime activities perhaps the most popular is the School Gardening Club affords students the opportunity to learn about the natural world, how to cultivate a garden, and indeed grow and eat their own produce - the marrows have been a particular success this year!
