BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
We believe that education should extend beyond the classroom.
SCHOOL TRIPS & EVENTS
To bring learning to life we plan for the children to take part in trips and events that link to their curriculum learning. This might be a trip to the Verulamium Museum in St Albans for our year 4 Romans unit, or a classroom take over to introduce our year 5 Viking invaders unit. We believe that the children benefit from visiting the many places of interest London has to offer, and from having representatives from various organisations and other specialists visit the school.
We also ensure children have access to experiences which will help them build their self-confidence and widen their life experiences. These include the year 5 and 6 residential trips and opportunities to experience arts events such as the Year 2 pantomime trip.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
Playcentre provision is available for West Hampstead pupils at the Fortune Green playcentre. The children are collected from the school by the Fortune Green staff at 3:30.
Children are also able to take part in a range of after school clubs from 3:30pm to 4:30pm (see WHPS Clubs document below).
From 8:00 am there is a breakfast club available at West Hampstead school at a cost of £2.00 per day. Activities and sport are provided alongside a healthy breakfast meal.
We run a number of lunchtime activity clubs for children to take part in. Currently on offer are chess club, computer club and choir.
