Extra-Curricular Activities

At Bishop Alexander, we aim to offer a variety of different extra-curricular clubs. Some clubs are kindly run by members of staff and others are run by our sports coaches. As always, we are keen to develop the opportunities for our children, so if you have any queries or ideas then please let us know. 

Bishop Alexander Clubs (in line with Covid-19 regulations)

We are finally in a position to start to offer the children opportunities to attend extra- curricular activities!

The clubs will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Please look for your Year group or appropriate Key Stage.
Then click on the link below to apply electronically.
Thank you for your support.

Assigning places in clubs

In order to make the application process as fair as possible, we offer a first come first serve basis and also ask you to apply each term to enable other’s to have the opportunity to participate. We really value the commitment that our children show towards the extra-curricular clubs. If there is ever a session that you cannot attend, please let the office or club leader know out of courtesy.

Below is an overview of our club timetable. Clubs are only being offered to KS2 for the first term, as Foundation and KS1 settle back into school. In the future, you will be able to click on the club name and find out more information. Please bare with us whilst we solve the current technical glitch with this. We hope that you become familiar with the new format and procedure and as always would welcome any feedback. Thank you for understanding that this is an example until clubs are allowed to resume.
