At Archbishop Blanch we are delighted to offer such a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities to all of our students including a range of Sports, Choir and Performing Arts, and much more which take place after school usually from 2:30 – 3:30 or 3.45pm.
There is an abundance of research to support the claim that ‘extra-curricular activities provide several benefits for children’ (Eanes, 2016) such as the development of key transferable skills, as well as the opportunity to socialise with peers.
