We offer a wide range of exciting clubs for our pupils at Bowness, we do this to enrich our school curriculum with the aim to provide cultural, social and physical opportunities alongside those that they learn during school hours. In doing this we aim for an effective syllabus with the aim that these experiences enable our children to achieve highly and that they then are equipped with the skills to take full advantage of opportunities, learning of new skills and responsibilities in their later lives.
Music and Performing Arts
There is a strong music tradition here at Bowness. Instrumental lessons, organised in conjunction with Alfa Music Service, are offered on percussion and string instruments. The school choirs practise weekly and perform on a regular basis. Major musical events are undertaken periodically and children of all ages take part in the annual shows and concerts.
Sports, School Clubs and Teams
A wide range of sporting and non-sporting clubs are always available throughout the year such as: football, rounders, cricket, netball, cross country, reading, IT, cooking, craft & games. If there is an interest in it, we’ll run a club! We also have school teams in most of the sports we offer which compete on local levels.
Residential Visits and Other Events
Every alternate year, children from all upper KS2 classes have the opportunity to go on an outward bounds holiday to Claddagh Hall, Wales. We also have a comprehensive calendar of exciting events, trips and visits; all of which make memories that last a lifetime for our children.
After School Sports

We run a range of extra-curricular clubs through the school year including: Football, Netball, Rounders, Cricket and Cross Country.
