At Orleans we have worked hard to build up a wide variety of clubs for our pupils. These clubs either take place before school, at lunchtime or after school dependent upon the particular club and the space available at our school. The vast majority of our clubs are run by external providers, many of whom have worked with us over a period of several years. The clubs are popular and well attended, we know that our pupils enjoy attending them.
Our aim for the clubs which run at Orleans is to give our pupils opportunities to try new activities which may spark a life long love of a particular skill which they may which to continue to pursue outside of school. In addition to this joining a club is a superb way of pupils making new friends within either their class or another year group.
Joining a club
The process for joining a club which is run by an external provider is to contact the external club provider directly using their contact details on the clubs list. They will liaise with you directly about available places and how to book. The process for joining a clubs which is run internally by the school is to wait until the ‘clubs booking date’ which is towards the end of each school term ready for the next term, the date of which will be communicated by the school in advance, and fill out the Google Form that will be sent out at 7pm. Please note that our internal clubs are extremely popular and we recommend filling the form out at 7pm on the clubs booking day if there is a particular club your child wishes to attend.
As of the Summer Term 2021 the external providers are:
Crouching Tiger Karate
Richmond Juniors Chess
Nina Bardowell (Netball)

The contact details for each club is always sent out in the clubs list which is sent out prior to the start of a new term. Unfortunately, the school office does not organise club bookings or lists, so please ensure you contact the club provider directly.
