Extended School Activities

Extended School Activities

The Extended Schools Activities for Spring 2020 are below

Students at Bottisham are able to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities at lunchtime and after school.
After activities have finished, parents/carers are responsible for ensuring their child is collected from school at the end of the session. If students are walking or biking home please ensure they are adequately prepared with the correct clothing and equipment.

How to Enroll - 

All forms are required regardless of payment method and prior to commencement of the clubs.  Please note places are only secured when payment, Enrolment Form, Terms & Conditions form and Health Declaration form (if applicable) are received.
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
All courses will run for 10 weeks starting Monday 20th January 2020

Half Term 17th - 21st February

Tax Credit 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.
