At Handcross Primary School, we are proud to offer a wide range of extracurricular clubs and activities in addition to our wrap-around care and our academic booster priority groups. These include, but are not limited to, football, netball, art, Mandarin, athletics, tag-rugby, hockey, construction, dance, cookery, choir, orchestra, gymnastics and so much more!
These activities and clubs run before and after school or during lunchtime.

In addition to a wide selection of clubs, both non-competitive and competitive sport is highly valued at Handcross Primary. The children have the opportunity to participate in competitive matches and tournaments with other schools in a range of sports. For more information, please see our PE pages.
We are also passionate about the learning of music. Alongside our excellent in-lesson curriculum provision (see our music pages for more information), there are opportunities for pupils to take part in externally organised music lessons. These include instruments such as violin, guitar and keyboard. We have a school choir and orchestra who meet weekly and often perform to parents and at events in and outside of school.
We believe that first hand experiences enrich children’s learning by creating meaningful memories and contexts to apply what they learn at school. We offer these through the use of specialist artefacts, visiting speakers, presentations and educational visits. Visits range from regular local trips such as to Nymans Gardens, Slaugham Church and our village high street to further afield such as The Sea Life Centre Brighton, Butser Ancient Farm in Hampshire and The National Portrait Gallery, London.
In year 3 and 4, children visit Blacklands Farm to take part in an Outdoor Adventurous Activity day, where they can try new activities, develop confidence and build teamwork and social skills. Our Year 6 pupils take part in a 4 day residential visit to Osmington Bay in Dorset, where they further develop these essential life skills before embarking on their final year at Handcross Primary School.
