These programs include, tennis, football, swimming, cricket, rugby, climbing, holiday camps and much more. Our main aim is to provide all students with the knowledge and tools to better themselves within the sport, with the focus on enjoyment through learning
GEMS have engaged the services of E-Sports for additional activities and these will run after our free school based activities. There are costs for all these activities as detailed on the attached schedule. Places are not guaranteed and are allocated if vacancies are available and on a first come, first served basis at the specific sign up days allocated to the various schools.
However, as we cannot have unsupervised children at school waiting to attend a club which starts later in the day, we ask you to please select a school club which slots in on the same day as your paid activity, unless you are prepared to collect at 2.50pm and return your child to their coaching session at the later time.
