After School Clubs – Spring 2

All the Clubs for Spring 2 are now available to book online.  Some of the Clubs start straight up after half term so please check all the session dates.

We have two new Clubs starting this term with Monday Table Tennis and Thursday Karate Club.     

To book a place on these clubs please visit the college website: www.uppinghamcollege.org.uk
Then click on Parent Links, Online Payments and then Clubs and Activities and then simply chose the clubs you wish to pay for. 

NEW - Athletic Development Sessions

One of our former students Jamy Clamp, who is now a Strength & Conditioning Coach is looking to offer some after school training sessions.  The sessions will involve all of the fundamental movement skills that are essential for the young sportsperson to make progress in their sport.  Additionally, these skills transfer to general participation so, by no means, is this training only for the young sportsperson with a goal of pursuing a career in sport.  The programme is designed to cater for all abilities, all activities and all ages.

Can any interested students please contact Mr Lewin so we can see if there is enough interest to trial these sessions next term.
