Extracurricular clubs

After-school clubs at The Rise School are an asset which enrich our curriculum and provide opportunities for new friendships to flourish.

Clubs are held from 3:00pm-4:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and during clubs pupils are provided with a healthy snack between 3:00pm-3:15pm. Additionally, in alignment to our school classes structure (eight pupils per class), there are eight places for each activity and pupils may attend two clubs per week.

Our range of activities are open to either primary or secondary phase and are appropriate to all pupils. Our clubs provide fun opportunities to take passions and develop skills further or to try something new.

We change the activities each term to offer new experiences and equal opportunities for all pupils to join a club. To join we will send out a termly letter which details the clubs which you can submit your interest.
