In 2013 Ilminster Avenue had 0% of their children competing in extra curricular competition, now, in 2017 75% of KS1 and KS2 children competed in extra curricular competitions. Competitions entered included sports teams and dance festivals. In addition to this, Ilminster Avenue also offered a range of different clubs over the academic year, including art, gardening and sports clubs.
Over the academic year Ilminster Avenue also competes in over 20 extra curricular competitions as part of the Ashton Park School Sport Partnership, including tag rugby, football, golf and tennis teams. Extra curricular clubs and teams are a huge part of the school and something which we are continuing to grow.
Enrichment outside school hours is very important for our children. We are increasing the range of activities we offer year-on-year and they are proving to be very popular indeed. Our sports coach Mr Roberts is responsible for organising these, so please arrange to speak with him if you think you can contribute in any way to running these clubs.
We operate on a first-come, first-served basis with all activities and ensure that everyone gets a fair turn if any are over-subscribed. The timetable changes slightly each term so please ensure you are up to date with times. For further information, please contact the academy office.
All of our extra curricular activities are free of charge. Please click here to see a full list of our clubs and activities.
