Beyond the Classroom
Advantages of before and after school / after class programmes
Our wrap-around care is particularly welcomed by busy or working parents with early drop-off from 8:00am and extended day options until 6:00pm.
After school lessons and activities beyond the classroom
Westonbirt Prep School has the exceptional advantage of its 210 acres of beautiful rural park and woodland, which is an invaluable and inspirational natural teaching resource. We also take children from every year group on regular field trips and excursions to augment and consolidate classroom study.
We include visits to theatres, museums, monuments and churches and also workshops, festivals and exhibitions related to science, geography, history, literary and language. There are also outside education curriculum days and outward-bound style residential courses that build confidence, independence and physical skills.
We also celebrate multicultural events and pupils participate in charity days and social activities such as the Easter Egg Hunt, Summer Fun Day and Bonfire Party.
Art, Music, Sport – after school clubs and other activities
Our unique country location means we can offer children a huge range of exciting opportunities outside the classroom. Pupils can participate in clubs and after school options aimed at both groups and individuals: these include: art, craft, science, tennis, hockey, football, rugby, cricket, computers, nature, chess, challenge club, ballet, judo, golf, tae kwondo, swimming, cookery, singing, music, dance, drama, life skills, photography, gardening and personal survival.
Clubs start at 4.00pm and cost £9.50 per evening to include a balanced tea, an hour long activity and late-stay care until 6.00pm if required.
There is also provision for pupils to complete their prep (homework) before leaving school for the day.
