At Oswald Road, we have a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs on offer. Please see below drop down sections for the list of clubs currently available and the contact details for each club, along with FAQs.
Please take care to direct any queries to the right email address to ensure they are dealt with promptly.
If your child attends a club run by an external provider, please ensure you email them directly with any pick-up messages or absences.
In addition to our regular clubs, teachers may also run their own clubs from time to time. These are free to attend and sign up is usually via a short Google Form. Any information will be sent via Parent Mail.

Booking and Payment
An email is sent to parents/carers every term detailing all the clubs on offer and booking information, including when bookings will open. Please ensure you book early to avoid disappointment as we do have high demand for club places. Some clubs take payment via Parent Pay, and some clubs have their own booking systems in place. Please refer to the booking emails for more detailed instructions. If you miss the booking deadline, please contact the club organisers directly to enquire about remaining places.
Confirmation of Places
Club leads will usually be in touch to confirm your child’s place. If you book a club via Parent Pay, please take that as automatic confirmation of your child’s place. For our internal free clubs, you will receive confirmation via Parent Mail. For Dance Academy and Netbusters, you will receive confirmation via an email and by being
added into a payment item on Parent Pay.
Please note that all external clubs are required to ask you for additional information about your child. This includes emergency contact details, a pick-up password and any SEND and health needs. Your child will not be able to attend the club unless you provide this information when asked.
Cancellations and Refunds
If you would like to cancel your child’s place on a club, or have any queries about refunds, please contact the club organisers directly, even if you have paid for the club via Parent Pay. For payment queries regarding Dance Academy and Netbusters, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
