We are proud of the range of after school clubs which are available to our pupils and aim to cater to different age groups and interests through clubs such as sport, dance, recorders, gymnastics, art and story writing/drama. Some of the clubs are provided by outside agencies but the majority are run by teachers from the school.
Blackshaw Moor has been highly praised by Ofsted for our wide range of after school clubs. We seek to offer opportunities for all children to join in at minimal cost to parents. Please contact the office if you wish your child to attend any of the clubs listed below, as numbers are sometimes limited.
