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 welcome Bee Active to our school once again this academic year. 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:
- Circus Skills
- Laser Tag
- Tag Rugby
- Silly sports
Bee Active hold two after-school clubs at our school each week. The clubs are chosen in relation to our pupil interests.
Autumn Term 1 2021
Year 3 and Year 4: Inclusive Sports (due to the Paralympics)
Year 4 and Year 6: Inclusive Sports (due to the Paralympics)
Autumn Term 2 2021
Year 1 and Year 2: Laser Tag
Year 3 and Year 4: Badminton
Spring Term 1 2022

Bee Active 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, Bee Active have previously provided a ‘boot camp’ session before the doors open to school each morning. Children, parents and staff were all invited to join and the club has been very well received! Healthy mind, healthy body! (Due to risk assessments this is currently not taking place).
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.
