Extended School Activities

Extended School Activities

Students at Bottisham are able to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities at lunchtime and after school.

The Extended Schools Brochure for Spring 2018 can be found here or downloaded from the right hand side of the page. 

How to Enrol -

There are a limited number of places for some activities. If the activity is over-subscribed, we will have a random draw to allocate places after the deadline date and you will be notified of the outcome prior to the classes starting. If your child’s name is not drawn, your payment will be refunded to you.

Course/Activity Dates
Most of the courses will run for 10 weeks (unless stated otherwise) starting Monday 8th January 2018

Half Term 12th -16th February 2018 (Please note there are no classes Friday 9 February 2018)

In the event of any paid classes being cancelled an additional class may be added.

Help with fees
Tax Credit Information
If you are eligible for Tax Credits, and your child is aged 15 or younger, you may be able to claim some of the course fees as “approved activity based childcare costs”. For more information contact the Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900. You will need the name of your childcare provider (Bottisham Village College) and registration number (110860).

Other support available
A subsidy for low income families will be considered in some  circumstances, particularly if your child is eligible for free school meals - please contact the Finance Office for further information.
Families with 2 or more children, participating in 2 or more activities each, will be entitled to a 20% discount on the combined fee.
