Extra Curricular Sports Clubs
At St. Thomas Aquinas, we pride ourselves in our sports participation and offer a variety of after school sports clubs to cater for all ages and abilities.
We are very excited to welcome ASM sports to our school this academic year. ASM hold two after-school clubs at our school each week: one for KS1 pupils and one for KS2 pupils. They offer new and exciting activities to encourage our children to take part in sport and help to promote an active lifestyle. Examples of some these activities are:
- Street Dance
ASM also provide lunch time clubs twice a week for both our KS1 and KS2 children with the aim of promoting an active lifestyle, increasing participation and developing knowledge of sports and games.
in addition to all of the fabulous new and exciting clubs and sports they offer to our school, ASM also provide a ‘boot camp’ session before the doors open to school each morning (except Tuesdays). Children, parents and staff are all invited to join and the club has been very well received!
Healthy mind, healthy body!
Stoke City Football Club
SCFC are very generously providing some free coaching sessions this academic year for our football team. The children are very excited to be working with a Premier League team and hopefully they can share plenty of knowledge and skills with our young players.
After School Sports Team Practices.
Together with the PE Leader, a sports specialist teacher comes in once a week to run an after school sports practice session. These sessions vary according to the sports competitions that are coming up throughout the year. These sessions are aimed at the more able and talented children who may represent our school in Level 2 sports competitions. Our children have also managed to compete at a Level 3 (County) standard in some of the sports such as Sportshall, Netball and Tag Rugby.
Other clubs and events.
The staff and children at our school are always ready and willing to take on new challenges. Sport and Physical Activity are enjoyed by all here at St Thomas Aquinas and we regularly take part in larger projects such as performances and shows. Our KS2 children have become involved annually in a Dance Extravaganza which involves the children learning a dance routine through weekly Street Dance sessions to then perform on stage at the Victoria Hall along with other schools.
AllStars Judo also provides a club every Friday evening at our school. The children have been attending these sessions for a number of years and really enjoy the club.
We also have a 'Change4LIfe' club which runs weekly on a Wednesday lunchtime. This club promotes healthy living and active lifestyles and the children together with a member of staff play games and activities which they enjoy to help raise the awareness and profile of physical activity. Our children have also attended a Change4Life Festival which they all thoroughly enjoyed.
