Welcome to Alpha Preparatory School

Extra Curricular

Extra curricular activities are always good fun. There are lots of visits to enhance the work which we are doing at school, and these range from Reception making pizzas at Pizza Express (which you also have to eat!) through to Year 6 having a drama workshop at the Globe Theatre. We also have fun outings each summer and we all go to the panto at Christmas.

There are sports fixtures against other local independent schools and hotly-contested inter-house matches in soccer, netball, kwik cricket, volleyball, benchball and basketball. There is a Sports Day (in which every child takes part in several competitions), and a cross-country race for years 3 -6.

Children in Years 3 - 6 are offered the opportunity to learn to play a range of musical instruments including piano, guitar and violin outside of their normal timetable, i.e. during lunch breaks, before school starts or after school.  These lessons are given by specialist peripatetic teachers.

We offer a range of free after-school clubs which include sports, lego, craft and recorder clubs to name but a few.  There are some after-school clubs which are provided by outside companies such as coding and perfoming arts that parents pay a nominal fee for.
