Lower School Extra-Curricular

At KAS we endeavour to provide a range of extra curricular activities to develop our children’s interests and talents. Alongside a huge variety of lunch-time and after school clubs, we have a fabulous team of peripatetic teachers who offer private instrumental, singing and drama lessons. The clubs are run by KAS staff as well as outside providers, so some incur a cost while others are free of charge.

While we are always on the lookout for activities that we think your children will enjoy and are proud to be currently offering nearly 40 clubs in 30 different areas of interest, such as football, book-designing, problem solving, performing arts, art, sewing, gymnastics, street dance, touch-typing, table tennis, DT and cookery.  This extensive provision comes with an important reminder; we could book our children into exciting lessons and clubs every day if we chose to – but it is important to remember that there is beauty in allowing children the time to be bored, to not be organised by adults and instead to have an opportunity to create their own entertainment either alone or with friends!

All children are welcome to use our beautiful school grounds after school if an adult is there to look after them and the library is open for you to enjoy quiet story times together.

Music Lessons

The Music Department offers individual and small group lessons in a range of orchestral instruments, drum kit, guitar (acoustic and electric), piano and voice, and complements these with a range of ensembles, choirs, and activities. Music Theory is also offered to all students.

For instrumental and music theory lessons parents and students should send their requests on instrumentallessons@kingalfred.org.uk
