Extra-Curricular

At Breaside we believe learning doesn’t have to just happen in the classroom.


Early Morning Club and After-School Care

Breaside recognises and understands the need for out of hours childcare for our parents. We operate a Breakfast Club for parents to drop their children off at school from 7:30 am and an Afterschool Club that operates until 6:00pm. Obviously places are limited, but we are here to help and will do everything in our power to accommodate your children.

There are many other teacher and specialist run clubs for your children to attend at the end of the day too. Please look at individual clubs for further details or contact the School Office for further information – Tel: 020 8460 0916.


Clubs and Activities

We offer a wide range of clubs and activities which complement the school curriculum, which include Tae Kwon-do, Spanish, Elocution (Speech and Drama), Cross Country, Jewellery Making, Homework Club, Munchkins Sports, First Aid Club, Choir, Cookery Club, CS Coaching, Ballet and many more.  All pupils are encouraged to participate in all the clubs.


Holiday Club

Breaside School offers a holiday club during the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays, open to all children from the age of 3 upwards.  The club is designed to be flexible and is available from 8am until 4pm, for morning or afternoon sessions or for the whole day. This club is open to children from other schools as well as Breaside pupils.

The children are busy with a range of daily craft activities including themed or seasonal cookery and art projects.  For the more active children there are plenty of supervised outdoor activities dependent on weather conditions such as sports, kite making and orienteering. During some of the holidays we will also organise trips off site to parks, farms & museums.


Trips

We believe that learning does not just take place within the classroom and a variety of trips to places of interest are organised for each year group throughout the year. In Year 5, the pupils are offered the opportunity of taking part in an activities week in Dorset, where they can try a variety of outward-bound activities. The Year 6 trip to France gives our pupils the opportunity to practise their language skill as well as continue their outdoor pursuits.

For details of forthcoming trips and expeditions, have a look at our calendar.


Instrumental Lessons

Here at Breaside, we offer a wide range of instrumental tuition. We currently have children from Year 1 upwards learning instruments. Piano continues to be the most popular instrument and gives children an ideal start in music. We also offer Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, Ukulele, Flute, Jazz Saxophone, Clarinet, Nuvo Toot, Recorder, J-Sax, Trumpet, Singing and Drum Kit.

If you are interested in learning to play any other instrument we may be able to accommodate your request.

All our teachers are highly qualified professionals who have vast teaching experience in their fields.

Lessons are taught on a weekly basis. Although children come out of timetabled lessons, they do not miss the same lesson in two consecutive weeks as the lessons are arranged on a rota. We aim to teach 10 lessons per term.

The fees per term for all lessons are as follows:

15 mins                        £91.50 (only available for piano beginners)

20 mins                        £122.00

30 mins                       £183.00

These are payable at the start of term on receipt of the invoice from the instrumental teacher.

If you would like your child to learn a musical instrument, please request an application form from Mrs Coop, the Head of Music
