We aim to inspire and foster our pupils’ passions, to enable the development of life-long skills and draw out every child’s potential.
Albion offers a wide range of Enrichment clubs after school, taught by specialist teachers. Clubs give our pupils the opportunity to develop new skills, make friends and build upon their confidence and life skills.
Our clubs include music, sports, dance, gardening, languages, arts & crafts, and computing. They change termly so do check each term for what’s on offer. Each club will start at 3.30pm and finish at 4.30pm and we ask that you collect your child promptly from the playground gate unless they are attending Extended Day. The teacher leading the club will escort children to Extended Day. Please be reminded that all children must be collected by 4.30pm, otherwise parents/carers may be charged an extra amount.

As all parts of the garden and the forest area are connected, in gardening club children help look after the fruits, herbs, vegetables, trees, and the chickens. They play an important role in composting, and looking after the worm farm. The gardening club decide what to grow next and sow the seeds, then they get to take the harvest home. We light fires, play nature themed games, tell stories, and create art work inspired by the garden in the colder months.
Spanish (Speak Like a Native)
Our club focuses on fun, play and discovery. In every session the children participate in games, tasks and group activities – in Spanish! The focus is on speaking and listening in a stress-free atmosphere. Language guides follow a programme each term based on key words and phrases. Additional information available here.
After school tennis is a great way for your child to experience Tennis in a fun, safe environment at school. Sessions are run by LPESSN as part of the PE and school sports network. It is a great introduction to tennis and supports children develop coordination and agility skills as well as basic shot production.
In Year 1-3 football after school club we aim to teach the children basic ball manipulation skills such as controlling the ball, dribbling and changing directions. We also start to introduce team-based games in which we challenge the children to use these skills in a team.
In Year 4-6 football after school club we start to explain the importance of spatial awareness and passing and moving amongst a team. We also challenge the children to think about different scenarios during a football match and how they can affect these scenarios using the skills they have learnt.
In our Multisport Sessions children are taught to master basic movement skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. We also develop core skills such as balance, agility and co-ordination and begin to apply these in a range of activities.
We aim to develop core basketball skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting. We then look to apply these into game situations and challenge the children to know when to use different skills at different times of a game.
If you like to dance, move your body or would like to learn special tricks and skills, Street dance is the place to be. The children get to pick their favourite songs, learn choreographed dances, play dancing games and perform at shows. Style of music: hip hop, pop, RnB.
Our Mandarin club is taught by our professional Mandarin teacher. Children learn about Chinese culture (e.g. festivals, customs, traditional costumes, food, legends, literature, music and crafts). Each lesson has a unique theme and children will learn to speak or write some Mandarin related to this.
Sama Karate Organisation is a nationally recognised martial arts group teaching children and adults Karate across London, under Renshi Simon James 5th Dan. The classes are run with the children having fun while learning respect, discipline and self-control. We teach non-contact and that we never use what we have learned in aggression. While learning respect and discipline, the students also learn about healthy eating and fitness. We aim to teach a healthy body and mind.
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But only 47% of all secondary schools teach computer science. The good news is, we’re on our way to inspire our children to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history - more than 100 million students around the world have tried an Hour of Code. Even leaders like former US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign. In our coding class, the students will create their own apps or games they can show parents/carers, and we’ll also print Hour of Code certificates they can bring home. And, it’s fun! With interactive, hands-on activities, students will learn computational thinking skills in an approachable way.
