Co-Curricular After School Clubs and Care
Michaelmas Term Clubs 2022
Please find below the RGS Springfield term clubs. All our co-curricular and after school clubs will begin on Monday 12 September 2022 and with around 30 clubs, there is something for everyone.
With our external clubs, each child has the first week to decide if this is something they would like to do for the whole term and then they are then committed to the club for the rest of the term. Please note, club charges will always apply if the club is run, the only exception to this is if a child is away on a school residential trip.
Clubs are allocated as fairly, as possible. When completing the Club Booking Form, we ask you to put your child’s first choice in the first-choice box, as we will try to give children this choice. Each child can select up to six choices.
Please only submit your responses once and note that on the booking form drop down boxes the clubs are in weekday order. You must select your choices in preference of which one they most want to do. If you need to make any changes please email Lisa Horton-Samuel on
Choice 1: Wednesday Year 1 & 2 Choir
Choice 2: Monday Year 1 & 2 Art & Craft Club
Choice 3: Friday Year 1 & 2 Lego Club
Choice 4: Friday Year 1-6 Riding Club
By ticking the guardian/parental box you agree to pay the full charge due for any paying club, charges will be added to your termly account. Please note – full charges will apply should your child withdraw from any paying club after more than two sessions.
