After School Clubs
with My Online Schooling

When classes are done for the day, getting involved in one of our After School Clubs offers a great way for pupils to pursue hobbies, get to know friends and learn more about the subjects they love. These sessions run once a week for an hour, and they’re completely free for any pupil already enrolled with us.

So, as long as the after-school sessions fit in with your child’s timetable, they can get stuck into as many as they’d like.

If your child is enrolled with us, and would like to join our clubs and societies, then please take a look at the ones currently running and complete the registration form on your parent portal.

Whether you’re a Maths lover or hater, this club is all about enjoying Maths while furthering your understanding at the same time.
