At Wyvil we pride ourselves on the wide range of clubs and extra curricular activities on offer. We aim to provide a range of services for our pupils and their families. For children we offer childcare before and after school, a range of sports, arts and specialist interest activities at lunchtime, after school and in the school holidays, residential trips and (with parental consent) access to specialists such as counsellors and Speech and Language therapists. For parents we offer Family Learning courses, in which parents and children learn together, English language classes, parent support groups and a parent counsellor.Many of the opportunities we are able to offer rely on our membership of the Oval Learning Cluster of local schools.
Our breakfast club runs from 8:20 am and is sponsored by Greggs the Bakers. Primarily aimed at children who are at risk of low attendance / punctuality or social disadvantage, the club aims to give children a healthy and positive start to the day. Children are served a breakfast consisting of toast, cereals and fruit and there are a wide range of activities for children to enjoy. These include reading (for targeted children), lego, table top games and art. If you are interested in your child joining breakfast club, please speak Mrs Matthews our extended services leader.

Parents then receive a notification to return stating their choice of clubs and with payment information. All clubs need to be paid for in advance for the term at the school office.
