King Edward's School BATH

Clubs & activities

We offer a broad range of clubs in lunch times or before or after school. Some clubs are open, with no age limit, such as Chess, Fencing and Gymnastics, while others are aimed at lower school or upper school.

Clubs for Years 3 and 4 include Craft Club and Drama Club.

For Years 5 and 6 we offer Science Club and an Animation Club in which pupils make short films using plasticine, a camera and a Mac.

Some clubs have an extra cost, however many are led by our teachers and are free. One Saturday a term there is an opportunity for children to learn a new skill such as diving or cookery, and we also organise a Bikeability course for Year 6 pupils in a half term.

A typical club list is detailed here:

After-school club

There is after-school club supervision every day from 16.00 to 18.00.  A homework club takes place from 16.00 to16.40 as part of the after school care. This will occur in a lower corridor classroom.  You are able to collect your child at any time. The after-school care is free up to 16.30. After that there will be a charge of £2 per half hour session. No advance booking is necessary. Children not collected within 10 minutes from activities that finish before 17.30 will be signed in to after-school club and will be charged.

Book shop

The book shop is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12.35pm to 1.45pm. Children can browse and buy from a wide range of children’s books.


The library is open every day at lunch times for reading, changing books and quiet activities. The computers are only to be used when permission has been granted by a member of staff.


Please note that if your child selects to do a club that takes place on the same day that they do sports fixtures, they may miss some of the duration of the club.

'The best bit of Newshounds for me was when I filmed a guided tour around the school which was then sent to our partner school in China so they could learn about our school.'

Guy, Newshound Member

Every week a team of budding reporters scour the Junior School for interesting items of news which they film and then edit for KEJS TV.

Over the course of the year pupils work hard to refine both the visual and editorial content of their films. The aim in the near future, is to broadcast up-to-the-minute interesting features and news for both parents and children through the parents’ portal.
