Alverstoke Church of England Junior School




Wider Curriculum Opportunities

Before and After School Activities

We are able to offer a range of clubs for children to join. These range from:

Art Forest Club Hockey  Dance Cheerleading
Football Tennis Karate Sewing Netball
Swimming Robot Club  Gymnastics Travel Team Science Club

Every term an updating activity guide with details on how to book your child onto these clubs will be sent out to you via email.  These will vary every term as it depends on the season and where we can do these activities – it’s not much fun trying to do swimming in the hall!

Most of our clubs are held by external providers and costs and dates are set by them.

Please note that if the school is closed due to an inset day etc. then clubs will not be on.  If a club is cancelled due to staff illness etc. then the club provider will contact you directly.

If there is a club that your child would like to attend and we do not currently run this then please let us know as we are keen to offer a variety of activities for the pupils.

Music Tuition

Music is a great strength at Alverstoke Junior School and something that we are very proud of.  Many of our children have had the opportunity to advance with their music tuition by attending musical examinations and have gone on to develop their musical skills further when they have left us.

We have a choir that is open to all children and is free of charge.  We have taken part in the Alverstoke Christmas Tree Festival and Young Voices, a massed choir participating in a concert in the O2 in London.

Our instrumental lessons in brass, woodwind, guitar and keyboard and are taught in small groups of children for 15-20 minutes each week and taught by Hampshire Music Service teachers.  Lessons do take part in the school day.  The termly cost for musical tuition is £70.00.  Instruments can be hired from Hampshire Music Service.

If your child is keen to learn to play any of the above instruments then please do get in touch with us either by emailing or calling 023 92580450.

Is there an instrument not listed above that your child would like to play, then please do get in touch and we will then see if we can investigate this further.
