All films watched are age rated 12 or under and are mostly chosen by students. This club is very popular and can have anywhere between 15 – 40 students attending. Students are exposed to a range of new films that they may not have seen before and in a group setting which can create a fantastic atmosphere. Weekly attendance is not mandatory but the more students come, the more often they will be entered into the twice annual draw for a £25 Showcase Cinema voucher. To join film club students just need to visit Mrs. Fox in the library to get a permission form and return it, signed by a parent or guardian, before they attend for the first time.

Game Club 

Game club is on every lunch time in the library. It is run by Mrs. Fox. There is an ever growing range of board games that students can play. Students can join in and leave whenever they want. Most games can be played by groups of 2 – 4 students. Games include Tri-ominos (which is like Dominoes but with three sides), Jenga, Connect 4, Battleship, Switch 16 and Pentago, just to name a few. There is also a jigsaw puzzle on the go most of the time which is very relaxing. This club is a great way to meet new friends. If a game is out, students will sit down to play it and not really be bothered if they do not know the other students playing as long as they have someone to play it with. This club is fantastic for English as a second language (EASL) students as often the games are easy to understand without a lot of explanation. Game club helps improve math and reading skills, empathy, and concentration levels.  But above all it is a fun way to spend the lunch break. To join, just turn up!
