After School

A varied programme of extra-curricular activities is available for all children at Hunter Hall between 3.30 and 5.30pm.

The aim is to offer opportunities for children to participate in a wider variety of choice throughout the year, the programme is changed termly.

A range of sports is offered as well as music, art and drama, in some cases with professional coaches.

For Year 5/6 pupils we also offer a special exam preparation support session.

The programme is a very important contributor to the breadth of education available at Hunter Hall with many children participating every day.

Choir has over 40 members from Upper School, Band has 20. Practices take place weekly after school, with regular public performances.

There are separate clubs for Lower School and Upper School at different times in the year, with many opportunites to perform – often sketches that the children have written themselves.

Gardening Club provides ingredients for the school kitchen to incorporate in lunches; Wildlife Club has done much to develop the wildlife area within school, and makes regular use of the local environment.

Italian/ Latin Club is run at various times of the year after school. Examination Preparation Club provides encouragement in thinking and offers genuine challenge to those preparing for entrance to secondary schools.

Art and Craft Club runs throughout the year. Cookery Club is equally popular, of course.

There is an opportunity for quiet reading after school each day, when homework can be completed, if required.
