Extra Curricular Activities

What's on offer? 

The Firs Lower School is keen to promote the running of clubs outside normal hours and curriculum.  Such clubs are invaluable in providing the children with additional opportunities for learning and social experience.

As well as running our own school choir we are supported by Premier Sports Education, who provide many opportunities for children to try something new, coaching a selection of seasonal activities throughout the school year.
