Going beyond the curriculum builds and enhances our pupils’ interests, skills and talent. There’s something for everyone in our vast range of extra-curricular clubs.

Our extra-curricular programme is a wide ranging series of clubs and activities that take place outside of the timetabled school day. Children have the opportunity to join one or more clubs and can sample many different activities ranging from Sports, Choir and Dance to Learning Foreign Languages and British Sign Language!

Here at Hempland, we believe that all children should take interests wider than their subjects and we support and encourage them in discovering new interests and talents.

Music Tuition

If you are interested in your child playing a musical instrument, lessons can be given in school. There is a fee for peripatetic music lessons however they are at a reasonable price and vary from instrument to instrument.

These lessons can be organised privately through the music teacher. Please find below a list of the music teachers and their contact numbers/email addresses so that you can obtain more details and/or book lessons.

Cook School

Our Cook School is a fantastic resource offering children the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills – not only creating delicious food but also learning how to follow instructions, read a recipe and most importantly to clean up!

Cook School is run by our parents (grandparents, aunts, uncles and any other family members we can find!) If you are interested in volunteering then please do get in touch with Mrs Deidre Souch who runs Cook School. She can be contacted through the office or send her your request via the enquiry form on the website.
