Extra Curricular Activities

Children can enjoy a wide variety of before school, lunchtime and afterschool activities and clubs at Howes. In the past few years we have offered:

  • Art & Mindfulness
  • Ascension Dance
  • Boys Football
  • Cartoon Club
  • Dance Club
  • Deaf Tennis
  • Fun with Numbers
  • Girls Football
  • Gymnastics Club
  • Kurling
  • Multi-Sports
  • Robotics Club
  • Singing Club
  • Tennis
  • X-Country

Some of our clubs have very limited places and we will be offering these places on a first come, first served basis.


We are lucky that many clubs are run by members of staff in their own time and these clubs are free of charge to all pupils.

We have a number of clubs that are run by very experienced coaches. We have to pay the coaches their professional rates. We are very pleased that we are able to cover some of these costs, which means that we are able to offer these clubs at very subsidised rates. However, if there is not enough interest in the coach-led clubs or if we do not receive the fees, sadly we will have to cancel them.

Places will be allocated to these clubs on receipt of payment (cheque, cash or SIMS PAY).

Due to limited government funding, families who are in receipt of income-based free school meals are exempt from club charges. See the school office for more information.
