The school organises many clubs which are free and run voluntarily by staff or parents. Other clubs are run by externally trained tutors and are paid for. Clubs are for Key Stage 1 and 2 children and can vary according to the time of year and availability of volunteers.


They include:

  • Gardening
  • Programming (Yr 5 and 6)
  • Robotics (Yr 5 and 6)
  • Judo (KS2 only)
  • Modern Foreign Languages
  • Football
  • Running (KS2 only)
  • Netball (KS2 only)
  • Orchestra (KS2 only)

Educational visits covering a wide range of activities are arranged to extend and inspire the children with their studies. There are many day trips off site and in Year 6 the children are involved in a week long residential visit. We also host many visitors bought in to provide an exciting stimulus to the work covered in class. The staff and other adults strive constantly to provide rich, rewarding experiences that the children will remember for years to come. Some examples of these activities from across the school are:



  • Year 6 5-day residential trip
  • Year 4 Overnight expedition to Court Hill
  • Year 2 Sleepover at school
  • Visiting theatre companies and workshops
  • Poet in residence
  • Studies around the Wantage locality
  • Trips to local educational sites e.g. Cogges Farm, White Horse Hill etc.
  • Oxford Botanic Gardens
  • The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford
  • Visit to a Roman villa
  • Oxford Castle
