At Barrow Hills, there are a number of external clubs and activities that children (and parents) can attend if they wish. These are hosted at Barrow Hills, but run by external suppliers; they are paid for separately and directly to the relevant coach/teacher (unless specified otherwise).
These events are usually at a time outside of normal school hours and while they do not detract from the regular education that your children receive they do teach new skills that can help children in all sorts of areas of their learning. As they are optional; we ask that you arrange the starting of any external club with that coach/teacher. All the relevant contact details are provided on request or may be found on the Parent Portal.
Many of the clubs lead to gradings and qualifications in levels. They usually run for 10 to 12 sessions each term.
All of the external staff have suitably checked qualifications and details for working with the children and in all cases run clubs and activities in other schools and establishments as well.
