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!


Wraparound Care


We have seen that there is some need for after chool childcare in addition to the after school clubs we offer.  As a result, we will be running an after school club until 5pm every day from Monday 6th September.  The children can either attend the after school provision in the Community Room from 3.15pm until 5pm or they can attend a sports club until 4.30pm and go to the after school club afterwards.   


The Afterschool Provision is available until 5pm for those needing childcare due to work commitments.



  • This is £4 a session and can be paid online via SCOPay or with cash via the school office. 
  • We can continue to run afterschool clubs if regular payments are made.

The cost for sports clubs is £2.50 and, for the after school club, it will be £4 daily. If children attend the sports club and then the after school club, it will be a £4 charge.  

Clubs starting on Monday 1st October:

Please email or ring to book a place for your child.  Cost will be £2.50 per session.

Summer Activities Club on a Friday afternoon



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.


  • The Lower school (years 3&4) have their disco first and then the Upper School (years 5&6) continue the party. 
  • All children must purchase their tickets in advance of the event.

Summer Camp


Wow, did you know that Pennington Junior School offers an upper school and lower school summer camp for all pupils in the school grounds?

This is normally held near the end of the school year on a Friday night through to Saturday morning.

Children can camp together and there is barbecue food provided.

School Resiential


Year 6 have an amazing opportunity to attend a school residential - in previous years this has been held in the summer term at Little Canada on the Isle of Wight and Avon Tyrell in Dorset.
