Clubs and Activities

At Damers we believe that providing a clubs and activities programme is beneficial in many ways. Not only can after-school activities be fun and entertaining, but they can teach important life skills. For children participating in out of school activities it can help to improve their physical development, creativity, social development and self-confidence.

Our after school clubs are mostly led by teachers and run in half termly blocks. A few clubs are run by external professionals: for which there is a small charge. A new menu of activities opens on School Cloud towards the end of each half term and we now ask you to book through that system. We currently accommodate approximately 160 children in clubs.
