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.

Instrumental and LAMDA Lessons

Instrumental lessons for a wide range of instruments, music theory and voice are offered through peripatetic music teachers. Students have these lessons before or after school or come out of their lessons.

These are not included in the school fees, payment is made direct to the teacher. To book private lessons or find out more information, email: instrumentallessons@kingalfred.org.uk

Our LAMDA teacher, Tammy Cornish, offers lessons which can be taken one-to-one, in pairs or as a group. Lessons are usually 30 minutes long and charged for in advance. To book private lessons or find out more information, email: tammyc@kingalfred.org.uk
