Bentley Church of England

Primary School


We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of before school and after school clubs to support and extend opportunities for all interests across the primary age range.  Our regular clubs include Judo, Science Club, Football, Orchestra, Floorball, Ceramics and Boppin.  In the Autumn and Spring terms there are a number of teacher led clubs which have included Newspaper Club, Choir, Computing, Arts and Crafts, Pets, Hockey, Netball and Football.

In addition, we offer a number of opportunities for music lessions; piano, guitar, flute, violin, recorder and RockSteady.

Breakfast Club and Afterschool Club will be running from 4th September.  All other clubs and music lessons will start on Monday 10th September.

If you are feeling very organised now then please get in touch with the individual providers to book onto them (piano, violin, guitar, Rocksteady, archery/fencing, ceramics, ballet, BOPPIN, Club Morgan, Eureka Science Club and CMSports Football). Ask to be kept on waiting lists as it is always worth a chance in case someone else changes club options.

Please be advised that the individual provider will let you know if your child's club has different timings.
