Extra-Curricular Activities

We aim to provide as wide a range of activities as is practical in a small school and are very fortunate to have a purpose-built, for multi-use, hall (which was built to Sports England requirements and is the size of an International Badminton Court). We also have the use of the nearby large Millennium Field in the village.

St Loys run a Morning and an After School Club each weekday, please contact the office for details of sessions and charges.

Sporting Activities:

Children are introduced to a variety of sports including Tag Rugby, Football, Netball, Athletics, Tennis, Gym and Cricket.  We regularly visit local secondary schools to take part in family/primary school cluster competitions, such as Sportshall Athletics, Multi-Skills and Orienteering, to name a few. Our pupils have the opportunity to take part in the Woodford Halse Cross Country competition each year. Years 3 to 6 pupils swim for a term at Brackley Swimming Pool. Our Year 5 and 6 children take up the Bikeability challenge with Cycling England.

Please have a look at our Sports page. 

Music and Drama:

Children participate in performances for parents and friends at the School and in the Church. Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust (NMPAT) provides the opportunity for Junior pupils to undertake tuition on many instruments. At the moment St Loys offers tuition on: Strings, Keyboard and Brass instruments. These instruments (with exception of keyboard) are loaned free of charge for the first year through NMPAT. For further information please email office@nmpat.co.uk

Children from Year 2 and above are also offered the opportunity to take private Guitar lessons.

Our Year 1 and 2 children learn to play Ocarina in the classroom, which is always popular.

Children also have the opportunity to have shared lessons in the Recorders, Drums, Ukuleles and other instruments on rotation. These opportunities are provided by the governments ‘First Access’ scheme run through NMPAT.

After-School Activities:

We are often able to offer before or after-school activities including European Languages, Dance, Gymnastics, Multi-Skills Sports and Hotshots Basketball. Please check with the school for a list of clubs currently running.
