Clubs at Swainswick
The school provides a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for the older children during the lunchtimes, and occasionally after school as well. These extra curricular activities offer opportunities for the children to develop their interests and aptitudes. The range of clubs on offer varies each year with the interests of the children and the adults. The clubs are run by parents and local residents, as well as by school staff.
The children follow the adventures of Minimus the Mouse as they begin to learn Latin with Mrs Joyce, a Swainswick resident.

We at Swainswick School try to be as eco-friendly as possible so children from each year group are encouraged to join eco club. During the session we will research ways of becoming more eco friendly as a school and putting our plans/ideas into practice as well as offering opportunities for the children to do some gardening during the school term. Children get the opportunity to grow fruit and vegetables from seed, which they weed, water and tend until harvest time, when they can take their produce home to eat.
This popular club is offered to the children from Year Three onwards, it is taught both during Thursday lunchtime and after school on Thursday until 4.15pm.
