At Bevington we understand that providing children with enriching experiences enhances underpins their own personal school journey. We aim to offer all of our children as many enriching opportunities as possible.
Bevington offers a wide range of extra-curricular clubs which run every day after school. All clubs are run by outside specialists who provide the highest quality of teaching within their area of expertise. Our clubs range from STEM to Taekwondo and encompass all children from all year groups. Each term we see the benefits of children attending after-school clubs to enhance their learning. Watch this space to see the next Chelsea Footballer!

Trips and Visits
Children have opportunities to go on school trips and visits linked to their topic to help consolidate and extend their learning as well as creating exciting opportunities. Where possible, children are fortunate enough to participate in workshops delivered by experts and guest speakers to inspire them further.
Boosters are provided in years 2 and 6 to support children through the SATs process in the Summer. Children are fortunate enough to be given extra 45 minute lessons in groups of 10 with teachers outside of school hours. We feel supporting children both academically and emotionally allows them to feel 100% ready to give it their best in the Summer!
We currently offer weekly instrumental lessons in Piano, Guitar, Ukulele and Drums; we are also able to offer string and wind instruments upon request. These take place on either an individual group basis, and are taught by experienced professional musicians. We are able to offer targeted places for parents who feel unable to make a financial contribution, as we strongly feel that access to quality musical education should be available to all. All pupils who receive instrumental lessons are offered places in our school ensembles, and talented instrumentalist will be offered solo or recital opportunities through the year.

The Bevington School Orchestra is an auditioned ensemble of 20 musicians which rehearses weekly. We learn a range of music from classical pieces to arrangements of popular tunes. Any KS2 children who are already learning an instrument are welcome to audition. We perform on our own as part of our school’s concert series, and in conjunction with the School of Pop and Chamber Choir.
Throughout the academic year we provide pupils in KS2 the opportunity to represent the school in a variety of different sports teams. Our sports teams are mixed gender and compete against other local primary schools in football, netball and handball. Sports matches are also organised for after school against local schools in a variety of other sports including dodgeball, hockey, tennis and cricket. At the end of each term all year groups are given the opportunity to participate within a team, playing a specific sport learned throughout the term.
Bevington FM is our very own school radio station! Classes in KS2 use our studio on our top corridor to write, produce and present fortnightly radio programmes. Pupils are given free reign on the design of their radio shows, but they usually include news, music, interviews, quizzes, sharing of writing and much more!
For more information, and the latest broadcasts from the studio, please visit the Bevington FM Page.
Children at Bevington are given the opportunity to compete at Local and National levels against other schools. Competitions including Primary Maths Challenge, Maths Clusters and Poetry competitions provide our Most Able children to challenge their knowledge and test their sense of Healthy Competition.
Pupils at Bevington are encouraged to take on different roles and responsibilities throughout the school. Pupils are taught skills in order to complete successful applications with references to mirror real life application processes. Our jobs range from Digital Leaders to Office Assistants.
At Bevington, we understand the importance of all subjects, skills and talents ensuring all children are fully prepared with information to become successful in their future careers. Local business, parents and governors are invited to share expertise within their field at our annual Careers Fair in order to inspire, encourage and motivate our pupils.
To enhance the curriculum that we already deliver within school we have strong links with MyTime Active who deliver playground training to staff and weekly lessons on nutrition and physical activities for Year 1 and Year 4 children.
We also have a loyal volunteer gardener who works alongside gardeners from the Hammersmith Community Gardening Association to teach children about planting, seasonality and caring for the natural world around us. We are hoping these skills the children have learnt will soon be used for an up and coming project to help brighten up the local area with beautiful green spaces.
We work closely with local institutions across the Borough – for example supporting healthy eating with Go Golborne which has resulted in us being awarded a healthy school award!
We also build out our curriculum and extra curricular offering with support from local institutions, for example the Rhythm Studio offer music workshops to our pupils – watch for musicians in our alumni list!
