After School Clubs

At Percy Shurmer Academy we offer our children an exciting range of after-school clubs. Our aim is to help the children to develop their articulacy and speaking and listening skills through fun and engaging activities. These are the following activities we currently offer:

Story Time with our Children and Families

This wonderful opportunity is open to children and their families every Monday from 2:40pm until 3.15pm.  Our school librarian (Mrs Gaston) will share a story with you all and then work with the children and their families.  

There will be opportunities to discuss feelings within the story and the chance to complete a FUN activity.

We look forward to seeing you there! Each class in KS1 will get the opportunity to attend over the year. Currently, in Summer Term 1, we are inviting children and parents from Year 1 to attend. 




The Big Read - Art Club

As part of the The Big Read - design a book bench project, our artist in residence Andrew Timms is working with a group of gifted artists from across the school. 

The children will design and paint their book bench which will then be displayed around the region in cultural hubs, leisure complexes and shopping centres to create a series of free indoor art trails, giving everybody the opportunity to enjoy young people’s creativity during the summer holidays of 2016.
