Clubs and Activities


We are incredibly excited at Pennington Church of England Junior School to offer a great variety of regular and varied program of extra activities that your children can enjoy, as well as providing wrap around care from 7.45 to 4.30 for our children!


Breakfast Club or Before School Sports Club

Homework Club


  • Homework club is held after school on Tuesdays, providing an opportunity for children to complete their homework at school, if they feel it is easier for them to complete it here.

Gardening/Eco Club


  • From 15:20 – 16:30 on Fridays, we run a gardening club to encourage children to experience the outdoors and learn about the natural world. This includes everything from planting and tending the plants in our flowerbeds to pond dipping and exploring the ecosystems in our wildlife area. There are a lot of newts to be found there! In the winter, when it is too dark, cold and wet to garden, we do craft activities indoors.

Drama Club


  • Our Drama club aims to stage a pantomime at Christmas,  we hold rehearsals for this after-school, and then we hope that we can start to develop a love of drama and performance in our students, as well as developing their self-confidence, as they work towards creating the show.


All children attending an afterschool club should be collected from outside the school office.

PLEASE NOTE:  All clubs start back the 2nd week back after end of term holidays.


What activties do we do: Table tennis, athletics, tennis, football, fitness, cricket, benchball, rounders, skateboard, Boccia, gardening club, sailing, homework club, drama - the latest programe of activities is in our current newsletter.



We are a school like to party and we have amazing disco's 3 times a year - they are organised by our PTA, and supported by our school volunteers and the children have a fantastic evening.
