AFTER SCHOOL CLUB
Our hugely popular after school club has inspired and nurtured young artists for 15 years and is open to all children attending Claygate Primary School.
Laila's Art Club runs five afternoons a week, straight from school until 5pm. We are housed in the year 4-5 art area, next to the library, and your child can make their way there straight after school if they are in Key Stage 2, or they will be collected from their classroom if in Key Stage 1. When collecting your child, please come to the school green entrance gates. We will take the children there to meet you at 5pm, when the club is finished.
If you would like your child to join us, please sign up using the registration form below.
