Extra-Curricular Activities for Parents and Children

Here at Pikes Lane we are very proud to host a wealth of activities and extra-curricular clubs to help enhance the Pikes Lane Learning Journey.

We have a broad range of clubs for all ages and encourage pupils to get involved by taking part in the Children’s University Scheme. All clubs run before school at lunch times and after school so that pupils can access a club at a suitable time for them. 

We have a good range of opportunities for parents to be involved. Please see our timetables below. If you have any ideas or questions, please pop into school or call and speak to Mrs Wallace, Extended Services Manager.
