Childcare & Clubs


Extra-curricular clubs at Great Bedwyn School

We offer a wide range of clubs at our school that are run by teachers and outside agencies. Almost all children from Year 2 upwards attend a sports club plus one other.

Sport is very important in our school. Examples of clubs are football, high five, tennis, yoga, tag rugby, athletics, martial arts and dance, along with inclusive and general games.

Arts clubs are very popular and varied, catering for different age groups and times of year, e.g. Art in Nature, Armistice Day Club, Chumvi Club (African Elephant Charity), drawing, collage, water colours, etc.

Many musical activities are on offer: strings, wind band, orchestra and guitar, to name a few. The choir plays a prominent part in our Christmas and end of year celebrations.

We are always seeking to improve and enhance our provision. Club timetables are renewed three times a year. Please contact the school office for further information.

Residential Trips

At Great Bedwyn we believe that residential trips provide an opportunity to learn beyond the classroom. All activities enable children to further develop their resilience, communication and problem solving skills, building upon skills taught and developed in the school. Trips foster independence and self-confidence and provide children with a sense of achievement.

At Great Bedwyn, Year 4 and Year 6 spend time away.

Year 4

We take children to PGL when they are in year 4. This is a two night stay within the Wiltshire borders that is the first step for some children to stay away for the night. The activities vary from year to year but they may include archery, orienteering, a giant swing experience and climbing.

Year 6

In Year 6 we visit the UK Sailing Association (UKSA) in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. We take part in the following activities: sailing, paddle boarding, raft building, windsurfing and other water based activities.
