Extra-curricular

Extra- curricular activities are designed to widen the pupil’s opportunities and to motivate their overall learning. Most children have access to dance classes and to cookery classes. Also many children benefit from activities such as horse riding, football coaching, gardening and yoga.

We also run two after school clubs each week. For the year 2017-18 these clubs are Athletics and Dance / Film club.

Pupils have access to the local and wider community as part of their curriculum offer. Children who have difficulties connecting their thinking require additional opportunities for community involvement in order to generalise skills learnt in the classroom. As part of their everyday curriculum pupils access local shops, shopping centres, leisure centres and recreational facilities. Pupils also have opportunities to visit places related to their cross curricular area of studies, this may involve visits to the Theatre, Ecology sites and Museums.

‘Thank you very much for all the help and support you have given our daughter. The Link is a great school and our decision to send our daughter here was the best decision we made.”
