At Lonsdale we offer a variety of lunchtime and after-school clubs. All pupils have the opportunities and are encouraged to try clubs that are of interest.
After School Clubs may incur a charge. For further information please contact Mrs Woolley.
Lunchtime Sports Clubs are run by our Sports team. Different activities are available across the week.
Run by Miss Sumner, Choir meets in the Music Room every Thursday lunchtime from 1.15. It is open to anyone who enjoys singing. Our members come from all age groups and we sing a mixture of popular, traditional and seasonal songs. It is a good opportunity for pupils of different ages and abilities to work together. Sometimes we prepare pieces to perform to the rest of the school or in assemblies and concerts when parents and visitors are invited.
Harrison says “I like choir because it gives me a chance to sing and I enjoy it”.
Run by Mrs North, Drama Club happens on Monday lunchtime 1.10 pm - 1.50 pm and is open to all students. Students attend on a termly rota. The club promotes and develops working with others, creative thinking, confidence, communication and social interaction and performance skills.
Flo says “I like Drama club because it gives me a chance to make up a play and perform showing people what I can achieve”.
Run by Mrs Woolley, Cooking Club is on a Wednesday lunchtime 1.10 - 1.50 pm. Mrs Woolley chooses delicious recipes and supplies ingredients. Pupils attend on a rota and are taught/assisted with cooking the recipes.
Social Communication Group for VOCA Users
Two groups are run on Wednesdays in the Drama room allowing pupils to practise communicating socially using their devices.
At Lonsdale we aim to provide at least two after School Sports Clubs per term. We work closely with Hertfordshire based clubs including the Hertfordshire Cricket Association, the Golf Trust, Wheelchair Dance Association, Hertfordshire LTA and the Herts Sport and Wellbeing Foundation who provide us with qualified coaches to lead our sessions.
Sessions are fun and accessible to all students from both school and the local community. Students access local facilities where possible so that they can also experience sport outside of Lonsdale.
