Our Breakfast Club for children is open from 7.45am. There is a charge of £2.00 (£1.00 for each additional sibling) and this includes breakfast which consists of a bowl of cereal, toast and a drink. We stop serving food at 8.30. Key Stage 2 children are escorted to the playground after Breakfast Club and all other children are taken directly to their classrooms. For further information please speak to Mrs. Quirk.
Our school choir is formed annually in the run up to Christmas and our talented children perform festive songs in the local community to raise money for school and for charity. The choir have sung at locations such as Matalan, Tesco, Aldi, The Magical Christmas Fair at Manchester Central and at a local SureStart Centre.
In 2018 we participated again in Young Voices, where the children were given the opportunity to perform alongside over 7,000 other children at the Manchester Arena and also performed a selection of the songs for their families and friends.
We are excited to announce that we will be taking part in the 2019 concerts!
For more information about our choirs please speak to Mr Bousfield or Miss Harris. You can also visit the Young Voices website.

Into Film Film Club
Film Club is an after-school club that invites members to watch movies, discuss them and write reviews that are published online at www.filmclub.org. We have watched many films from many different genres, from modern classics such as 'Up', silent films such as 'Lost and Found' and the first ever horror film that featured a twist, 1920's 'The Cabinet of Dr Caligari'.
Please see Mr Bousfield or Miss Harris for more information.
Our children are very talented and they have the opportunity to perform in a range of productions during their Sandilands career.
