Lunchtime Sports Clubs are run by a Sports Apprentice. Different activities are available across the week.
Run by Miss Sumner Choir Club meets in the music and drama room every Thursday lunchtime from 1.15 pm - 1.45 pm. It is open to anyone who enjoys singing. Our members come from KS3 upwards 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.
Myah says “I like choir because it gives me a chance to sing to an audience”.

After School Clubs
At Lonsdale we aim to provide at least 2 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 the school and the local community. students access local facilities where possible so that they can experience the sport outside of Lonsdale.
