Extra Curricular Clubs

We have lots of extra-curricular clubs and activities for all our children to participate in. These are either after school or at lunch times.  We feel these clubs add to the enrichment opportunities for all our children.


At the end of each term, every child receives a Club list menu showing which clubs will run the following term. They can choose which clubs to participate in. Our clubs are always over-subscribed so we often have to share out participation.  

Some clubs lead onto participation with other schools such as the Choir take part in the Young Voices Concert in Manchester.


Messy Church and the Ethos group is lead by Mrs Towriess they learn about the teaching of Jesus Christ and plan and lead worship in the school. 



The library is much loved and is open during Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes. Miss Riley with her team of volunteer librarians are very dedicated and make reading fun!

 Alongside children attending the library the librarians also take books outside onto the yard for the other children to relax and enjoy in the fresh air. 


Knit and Natter club takes place on Wednesday lunch times and some wonderful wooly creations are produced, Mrs Moses encourages all the children to be creative. 


Cookery club by Mrs Stanton and Miss Chapman every Thursday after school...the smells from the kitchen are delicious! 


Young Leaders and play leaders encourage children to be participate and be active at lunchtimes by various organised events and games in the thrill zone on the yard.


The School Council meet monthly to assist with the clubs in the school and help Miss Stott and the Governors make important decisions.  


We we also hold study clubs, Art and craft, Mud Club,  football, netball, athletics and many other sporting clubs for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils at lunchtimes and after school all free of charge by our dedicated staff team. Please look at our sports page to see the timetable for all the sporting clubs that take place each week. 


St. James' Lanehead is a very busy and active school. So look out for your club list and get involved in all the wonderful learning experiences. 




Here are some pictures showing you the clubs that the children have attended. 

Computing Club

Here the children learnt how to create programmes and made their own games. They tested a variety of educational games first to help them develop their own ideas.
