Our Pupil Parliament met with Mrs Brown, Assistant Head (Operational and Safeguarding) yesterday and had a great discussion about the current co-curricular clubs on offer at Banstead Prep School.

The children said they would like to see:

  • Sports clubs such as rugby, golf (skills based), cricket, baseball, martial arts such as karate, basketball and badminton. Extra fitness training and additional training sessions for the sport in which they are currently competing were also suggested.
  • More languages, including Italian and Japanese
  • Clubs involving cards or board games for Prep aged children as well as pre-prep.
  • Creative clubs such as doodle club, animation and colouring, and wellbeing opportunities such as mindfulness.

Whilst, we may not be able to offer everything requested, the information has already been shared with staff to help inform plans for next term. One interesting piece of feedback was that morning and lunchtime clubs are preferred as the children feel pretty tired by the end of the school day.

If you or your child has any other suggestions, please let us know by emailing office@bansteadprep.com or put a suggestion in the parent or pupil suggestion boxes in school (in the School Office for parents).
