Clubs and the Extended Day
At Marlborough House the aim of the club programme is to give as many children as possible the opportunity to try new and exciting activities outside of school hours.
The clubs programme starts from the Pre-Prep with a range of different activities for all year groups. Dance classes are very popular with both boys and girls and these include tap, ballet and modern. Sports clubs include football, judo, tennis and gymnastics with quieter classes such as board games, construction club, sewing and yoga also on offer. Each week the Wild Woods and Green Fingers Club go out into the grounds and get their hands dirty whilst our Drama Club is a great way to build confidence and have lots of fun at the same time.
The contribution of curricular and extra-curricular provision is excellentISI report june 2015
In Prep School we offer a very wide range of clubs which gradually increase in choice as the children move up the school. In Years 3 and 4 children are able to choose from sports, such as football and judo, art, speech and drama, or dance. Our fabulous Head of Music, Miss Day, teaches the Junior Choir on a Wednesday afternoon alongside many other music groups.
As the children move up the school into Years 5 – 8 the majority of the club programme operates to 7.00pm with a full cooked supper offered beforehand.
One club that is particularly popular with our older pupils is Chef Club during which the children cook up some delicious treats to take home and share with their families. There is no additional charge for clubs run by MHS teachers and coaches.
