After School Clubs usually run over a weekly block period and letters regarding clubs will be sent home at the time. Parents will be asked to complete consent forms for school run clubs and return them as soon as possible. Places will usually be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Parents will be required to register and pay online for some clubs run by external providers. For further information see the letter below.
We also run a wide range of clubs during the school day over lunchtime periods.
Please see the table below for information regarding the wide range of clubs on offer.
Recorder club runs weekly and is led by two parent volunteers. Learning to play the recorder is a fantastic way to introduce children to music. It is a great opportunity for Year 4, 5 and 6 children to learn a musical instrument, begin to read music and perform to an audience. The children perform in assemblies, the Christmas and Summer Fayres and also in concerts.
Learning the recorder paves the way for bigger and better things as the fingering of the recorder is very similar to many wind instruments such as the flute, clarinet and saxophone.
DID YOU KNOW....
- The recorder has been around since medieval times.
- King Henry VIII played and collected recorders. He had 76 recorders in his collection!
- Many famous musicians can play the recorder such as Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix and Paul McCartney.

Cramlington Rockets Rugby After School Club
Staff members from Cramlington Rockets have been coming into school over the past year to work with children and provide short Rugby taster sessions. This year we have also started an after school club with KS2 children which has been very much enjoyed.
Cramlington Rockets have recently been awarded 'Community Club of the Year' at the prestigious RFL Community Awards at Old Trafford. Below is an email from Steve Beaty, the manager at Cramlington Rockets thanking us for our support that we help to provide.
"I am honoured and humbled to announce that Cramlington Rockets RLFC was named national Community Club of the Year at Saturday’s prestigious RFL Community Awards at Old Trafford. There are some photos from the awards on our Facebook page Cramlington Rockets RLFC and the full story can be found if you Click Here .
From the first training session 17 years ago in a car park to a club with 230 players from Tots to adults and reaching 30,000 people a year in the community, the Rockets has evolved beyond recognition. What has not changed, however is the values we hold, which is about doing our best to engage everyone we come across in the sport and the positive messages it can bring.
That means therefore that this is your award. Without the support we have received within the community non of what we have achieved would be possible.
We consider this award a marker in our journey, and we still have a lot more to come, from the club, the community and the whole of the North East. We have ambitious plans, as always, we need your support to help us continue on this wonderful adventure".
