Our Enrichment Clubs Offer

Here at Fulbourn Primary School we are proud to offer an extensive programme of extra-curricular clubs throughout the year. Clubs run either before or after school, and include indoor and outdoor sports, cooking, music, craft, drama, languages and much more! Thanks to the support of the Wright's Clock Charity in the village, all children are able to sign up for one free club each term, and can choose to attend further clubs at a reduced cost. Morning clubs run from 8:00 - 8:45 am, and after-school clubs from 3:15 - 4:15 pm (with the exception of Forest School club which runs until 5:00pm).

Children in Years 1-6 can sign up to clubs each term, and children in EYFS can sign up to a selection of clubs from the start of the Spring term each year. Sign up for clubs is advertised in advance, and is based on a first come, first served basis. Families are invited to sign up for their free club first, and then the programme is open about a week later to sign up for any further clubs. Families entitled to the Pupil Premium are offered a second club free of charge.
