In addition, half-term and holiday activity camps take place at Tetherdown. Clubs provided range from sports, to arts and crafts, music, drama and more in a safe and nurturing environment.
Lunchtime and Extracurricular Clubs
Please note no extracurricular clubs run during the first and last full week of term. The last week of term as appropriate is used for any catch-up classes.
Lunchtime Clubs: Delivered by external providers between 12:00 noon and 1:00pm daily. Sign-up is directly with the external club provides, and contact details can be found in our published timetable link.
Extracurricular Clubs: Delivered by both external providers and Tetherdown staff between 3:30pm and 4:30pm daily. For provision provided by external providers sign-up is directly with them, and contact details can be found in our published timetable link.
Club Registration: Registration is required for each new term for extracurricular clubs run by Tetherdown School (i.e. Welly Time, Netball and Sonia's sports clubs). Parents will be contacted at the end of the previous term for registration for the next term. Only the choir and orchestra do not need to re-register as these clubs are a commitment for the academic year starting in September. For registration information for clubs run by our external providers, please contact them directly. Contact information can be found in the club timetable.
Wraparound Care: In addition, the school provides wraparound care provision: Breakfast Club delivered by Dianne Geen-Moore and Tetherdown After School Club delivered by Kelly Woodward. For more information, select the link below.
Club Promotion: Below is a list of the schools timetabled club providers. To assist parents and promote the club providers we are publishing any advertising provided by the club for a new term. If there is no link then promotional leaflets have not been provided.

If your child's extracurricular club at the end of the school day is cancelled by the provider, parents are advised to make alternative pick-up arrangements for their child and to notify the school office via email of the new arrangement no later than 2:45pm. Parents should not assume that the Tetherdown after-school club can take their child following a club cancellation if they cannot make alternative pick-up arrangements.
Children who normally attend the Tetherdown after-school club directly after the cancelled extracurricular club (e.g. tennis) can go straight to after-school club at the end of the school day, however you will be charged accordingly for this session via ParentPay.
Activity Camps: Half Term and Holidays
We offer the opportunity for children to have a fun, active and safe learning experience. Children will learn and develop new and existing skills with an emphasis on staying active and enjoying their holiday.
Camps run at Tetherdown are geared towards offering a wide range of sports, physical activities and games to children between the ages of 5-11. Children will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and activities.
Camp information and registration details are communicated via our Newsletter and ParentPay to our Tetherdown parent community prior to any half-term and holiday camps taking place so look our for this type of communication!
Club Promotion: We will publish links to any advertising provided by clubs to promote their activity camp for the half-term or holidays. When we receive advertising this will be listed below.
