Extra Curricular Activities

Here at Bramhope we believe in a rich and varied curriculum with opportunities for all of our children.  See our current programme of activities below - some of which are parent-led.  If you have a hobby or interest that you’d be interested in bringing into school then get in touch with our admin team. 

If you have any enquiries about any of the clubs or activities listed - either getting started or on-going please contact our admin team.

Our specialist sports providers – Sporting Influence run various after-school sports clubs at school which change termly as well as teaching lessons in school time.

There’s something for everyone who enjoys music – our choir, junior band, peripatetic lessons and performances both at school and externally keep our children enthused as they benefit from our specialist music teaching in lessons.  Recently alongside our Specialist Music Teacher Mrs Thomson-Smith we have taken part in Opera North’s WW1 commemoration big sing-along at Leeds Town Hall,  a Young Voices Performance at Sheffield Arena alongside other Primary Schools.   We also perform in regular concerts and music plays a big part in our school performances at school.

Our parents and local volunteers run several of our clubs including chess club, rugby club and gardening club.  If you’d like to get involved or are passionate about something else that you’d like to bring into school, let us know!

Our School Council goes from strength to strength and has a prominent role in helping make key decisions in school.  Regular elections are held and children from Year 2 onwards can get involved.  Bramhope Buddies offers other ways for children to get involved at school facilitating friendship making and playtime fun across school. 

In Year 6 all of our children are given 'Prefect Roles' to promote leadership and demonstrate responsibility, including the following roles:  School Ambassadors, Reading Champions, House Captains, Digital Leaders and Eco-Councillors.  Children nominate themselves for the role that they feel most passionate about.
