Growing to Learn, Learning to Grow
Broadwater Down offers a wide range of extra curricular activities for children to take part in after school and at lunchtimes.

Christmas Craft Club
Mrs Lightbody is getting messy with children on Thursday afternoons!
This Club is for Key Stage 2 pupils. It is aimed at teaching the children the skill of ball control and co-ordination which they then apply to matches.
KS1 pupils join Penny Kift, our Chair of Governors, at lunchtimes to sow, tend to and harvest a range of vegetables. This year was a particularly productive harvest! We won Gold in the Tunbridge Wells in Bloom Schools Competition!
We have two choirs busy learning new songs at the moment - one for the Young Voices event at the 02 arena and one for the KS2 Christmas Carol Service. Mrs Slattery and Mrs Parkes are leading the groups.
Cross Country Club
Mrs Williams is keeping children fit on Thursdays making use of the school grounds and developing pupils' stamina and determination.
Pupils join Mrs Harris at lunchtimes to enjoy reading and find out fascinating facts!
Children apply for a place at our after school Cooking Club. This Club is run under the Schools Food Trust Scheme of "Let's Get Cooking", who provide the training for staff running the Club and funding for the purchase of equipment and ingredients to allow this Club to be free to those who participate. The children who attend this Club make something to take home for supper each week. The Cooking Club also makes cakes and other tasty treats to sell at school functions.
