Clubs and Enrichment

Arunside School hosts a number of different clubs for the children which are held both before and after school as well as at lunchtimes.


Our clubs change termly in order to ensure that we can cover as many of the children’s interests as possible. The time table  for the clubs offered during Summer Term 2023 are detailed below:

Peripatetic Music Sessions

Our children are offered an opportunity to learn many different instruments whilst at Arunside. As part of the curriculum in Year 4, all children are taught Djembe drumming or recorders. The children have great fun at their weekly lessons and parents are invited to hear them play at an end of term assembly. Other lessons, (for example, Cello, Violin, Keyboard and Drumming)  are provided at a cost by our partners, Rocksteady and West Sussex Music. Parents are invited to click on the links below for more information and then contact the appropriate organisations to make the necessary bookings.
