Our Lady of Lourdes School provides a highly challenging core curriculum, however, as an outstanding school we also realise the importance of providing our children with memorable learning opportunities outside of the classroom routine.
After School Provision
Our After school provision is wide ranging and well attended comprising of street dance, choir, basketball and sports multi-skills. Additionally, the school is part of our local sports partnership programme and children have the opportunity to take part in sports at a competitive level.
Additionally, we offer modern foreign languages other than the core offer of French. We have a thriving after school Spanish club which is well attended. Parents generously give of their time to the school and Spanish Club is a direct benefit of such highly gifted parental support.
We pride ourselves, as a school, on the quality of our music provision. Our school choir are well respected within the local community and perform at least three times per year at local centres.
Each class undertakes a class outing throughout the academic year focused on extending their learning from class based themes. Parents are asked to contribute to these outings and we are rarely short of parental volunteers.
We regularly have specialists in the school to work with the children. Last term the children worked with a group of local artists looking at sculpture and printing. The results of this work will be added to enhance our school learning environment.
Year 6 Residential
Children in Year 6 take part in a week French residential trip. The key focus being the battlefields of World War One, as part of developing their sense of British Values. Parents view this as a highly worthwhile trip which offers children a week to immerse themselves in French culture, learn a little conversational French and gain a wider perspective of the role of Britain within the context of our European partners.
