At Great Totham we offer a wide range of sporting opportunities for the children both within the curriculum and as additional activities. The many after school clubs we run play an important role in providing children with the chance to refine skills, follow specific interests and take part in competitive events.
The list of available clubs varies each term. Please visit our clubs page on the 'Beyond the classroom' tab to find out more. These clubs may be run by staff, volunteers or commercial providers.
