Extra Curricular Activities
At The Shade we offer a wide variety of optional extra-curricular activities to help our students discover new hobbies and interests. These activities are run by outside companies and do come at a charge, We endeavour to provide our students with lots of different activities throughout the year and always welcome any suggestions.
Prestige Sports have been delivering exceptional sports coaching experiences to children since 2009 and have become one of the market leaders in sports coaching provision across the East of England.
Their sessions are designed for children of all abilities and are run by highly trained professionals. Each session sits at a cost of £3.60 and take place after school (3:15-4:15 pm). They offer a range of sports activities from football, gymnastics, dodgeball, dance, multi-sports and nerf & laser. Activities are alternated each term so that children have a chance to try out as many sports as they would like to. The booking system for these clubs is via the Prestige Sport website which also has lots of information should you wish to find out more.
Piano lessons are run by Mrs Morgan on Thursdays during school hours which last for 20 minutes per session. Timings of lessons are rotated to ensure that each student does not miss any key lessons in the classroom. The aim is for pupils to reach Grade 1 Level in the space of a year. Mrs Morgan uses the FW1 teaching books and once the basic skills have been mastered, pupils are welcome to take exams or just play for fun!

Guitar lessons take place every Tuesday and are usually taught in small groups of three, for 30 minutes per session. Children start off by learning the basics and playing simple songs that they are familiar with (as well as learning to write their own music!) and progress to working towards graded guitar exams, accredited by the London College of Music. Lessons are £71.50 per term, with an average of 11 lessons per term, spread out over the course of the school year (this works out, nominally, as £6.50 per lesson). Lessons are taught by Stuart Masters, a qualified teacher (QTS) and performing musician, with a number of years of experience.
