Children are encouraged to participate in a range of extra-curricular clubs and activities. These include music, choir, art, drama and additional sports coaching to prepare our teams for a range of fixtures against other schools.
Sport is an increasingly important part of the curriculum, which encourages confidence, self-esteem and team work. Children benefit from their enhanced physical skills and fitness and develop a sense of fair play.
We believe that these are essential life skills. In addition to games sessions, each child in Years 1 to 4 has weekly swimming lessons.
It is our aim for every pupil to represent the school in a sport during their time with us. Boys’ and Girls’ teams compete regularly. Fixtures are played against other schools in a range of traditional sports and Avondale regularly ‘punches above its weight!’
