  • About Extended Schools

    Mrs Tracy Austin - Extended Schools Coordinator

    At St. Anthony’s school the children are offered clubs to attend after school. This year we are trying to extend the amount of activities we can offer the children.

    Over the last few terms we have had ICT, swimming, trampolining, drama, football, art and dance. We also offer swimming in our heated indoor sensory pool. This caters for Infants and the ASD dept on Mondays, Juniors on Tuesdays and Secondary pupils on Thursday after school.

    At lunchtimes there has also been clubs such as choir, dance and football as well as art and a quiet area for some students.

    If the weather stays dry we can get out onto the field where there may be cricket, rounders, tri golf and even skateboarding lessons by skateboarding trainers.

    All clubs are designed to encourage the students' communication, independence and social interaction with their peers.

    In the New Year we will have a coach from Sussex Disability Cricket coming into do some sessions this will be based around cricket but also be multi sport based so everyone can access it if they want too and they don't have to know anything about the cricket!
