The club is managed by Alison Jupp with Helen Heavey as club concierge.

A massive thank you to all the parents and carers who took the time to fill out our club survey e-form.
We received some fantastic feedback for the clubs we have already provided, and some wonderful ideas about new clubs you would like to see on offer at KG.
Our survey feedback showed that although the children love our sporting activities, many would like to see more music, dancing, drama and arts and crafts on offer.
We have listened and are delighted to announce a wider choice of clubs including some great new activities such as choir, drama, environmental awareness, and also welcome the return of Street Dance and Friday Musical Theatre.
Clubs commence from w/c Monday 27th September for a 10-week run, expect for KG Choirs which start a week later for 9-weeks, and Art Attack which will run for 5-weeks from 8th November. Unfortunately, we do not offer clubs to Reception children in the autumn term, but will add a selection of fun themed clubs for them in the spring.
We reserve the right to cancel a club if not enough children sign up for it, however, we will issue a full refund if this is necessary.
To book a club place you will need to PAY IN ADVANCE via Pay360 / EVENTS (previously SIMS Pay) unfortunately we cannot accept vouchers as payment is required in advance.
HOW DO I BOOK A CLUB PLACE?
- Log onto your Pay360 (previously SIMS Pay) account and select ‘Events’ between Wednesday 22nd & Monday 27th September https://www.pay360educationpayments.com/Home
- Add your desired club choice/s to your shopping basket
- Make payment – as soon as your online payment is processed (Pay360 – transactions) your child’s club place is provisionally booked!
Once your debit card payment has been authorised your club place is provisionally secured. However, if the club is oversubscribed or is unsuitable for your child e.g. is not the appropriate age for the club, you will be contacted and offered a full refund.
If your child requires additional support at school, you will need to discuss your club application with Miss Johnson (SENCO) prior to your child starting the club.

We will be announcing club members shortly!!
Kelvin Grove has its very own Piano Club run by Mr Lea on a Thursday ‘day time’. Places are limited and pupils receive tuition from our very talented school pianist and freelance musician. Beginners learn in small groups of 4 pupils, and as they progress are moved to pairs and finally one-to-one lessons.
Regular practise is essential for any student to progress and make the most of this wonderful learning opportunity, therefore we ask parents/carers to support their child with daily 5+ minute practise sessions at home on a piano or keyboard. We also have a piano practise room in the school that children can book to use at lunch times, break times or after school.
Cost: £70 per term, (10 week run).

He is also the Lewisham Hockey Development Officer and regularly trains and enters a Kelvin Grove team in local sporting events.

Each week we’ll be learning with a new medium and children will create something wonderfully artistic to take home.

Street Dance is led by Mr Nelson founder of Team Kaizen, a group of highly talented professionals who are truly committed to the art of dance. Recent TV credits for the team include ‘The 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony’, ‘The MOBOS’ & ‘The Brit Awards’ ceremonies, and the ‘Got To Dance’ final to boot!
Pupils will be taught some cool moves and the correct technique and history of street dance. Lessons are fun and energetic, and just challenging enough to encourage pupils of all abilities to truly express themselves.
During the final club session Mr Nelson invites parents/carers to attend a special performance (TBC) where children showcase their dancing achievements and sometimes the adults get to join in too!

Drama Club (Years 5 6)
Year 5 6 pupils will have the opportunity to join our new Drama Club and enjoy a fun and interesting introduction to the magical world of theatre!
The club will offer drama based play and improvisational games which will improve members’ focus, teamwork and confidence. Children will also develop an understanding of how these skills can be applied both inside and outside of the theatre, as well as a basic vocabulary of dramatic terms and concepts.
They will develop a basic understanding of theatre craft, and the ways in which making theatre is a collaboration of many different disciplines (costumes, lights, sound etc.).
At the end of the club run, we hope to present small pieces of theatre work at school assemblies.
Cost: £45 (10 week run)
Environmental Awareness Club (Years 1 2)
This club will truly be led by the children, as they discuss and decide upon an environmental or wildlife protection issue to research and deliver a special project about.
Club leader, Mrs Merzouki, will help them to be more aware of the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ scheme, and the children will also create environmental themed posters, arts and crafts and ultimately become ambassadors for the planet! At the end of this club members will be able to help educate their peers and parents and carers on environmental matters!
Cost: £45 (10 week run)
Friday Musical Theatre (Years 1 2)
This club is run by professional West End actors who love sharing their passion for acting, singing and dancing. Members are taught to warm up their bodies and voices, as well as simple vocal technique exercises.
They also get the chance to choose a musical theatre show to rehearse and then perform together for their parents/carers. The mini performance is bound to be a ‘show stopper’.
