There is an after-school Clubs programme for Primary Years children two afternoons a week throughout the school year. Most children participate, and, whilst the range of activities offered does vary from term to term, the clubs listed below are fairly typical. There are over forty clubs on offer!

Clubs are entirely voluntary and children may stay one afternoon a week, two afternoons or not at all. Children in Years 1 and 2 join a carousel, in which they receive a two-week “taste” of six activities over the twelve-week Clubs session. From Year 3, children choose one Club to do for the whole twelve week period for each of the afternoons they elect to join the Clubs programme. Regent School children are great participators, and the Clubs programme is a popular aspect of our school life.
Trips and Visits
The School has its own thirty-seater bus, which enables us to take the children out of school on educational trips to a variety of local places of interest. We also encourage parents and others to come in and talk to the children about their work and experiences, to enrich the children’s learning. In Year 6, the “Horizons” lecture programme brings in parents and others to talk on a wide range of topics related to the word beyond the school walls.
The Regent School is a busy place, and besides our lessons, clubs and other activities, a number of special events take place each year. These include our celebration of Nigerian Independence on 1st October, Early Years and Primary Years Sports Days, World Book Day, Geography Day, a Teddy Bears’ Picnic for Early Years, the annual Poetry Festival and Art Competition, and the eagerly awaited Fun Day – an all-day event held on a Saturday in June.
Performing Arts at The Regent School
We believe passionately in the advantages conferred for life on children who are encouraged from an early age to speak and perform in public and so we give our children many opportunities to do this. In December each year, every single class in the school performs a short play as part of our end-of-year performance to parents. Children frequently take part in Assemblies, and in Primary Years every class produces its own Class Assembly once each year. The annual Poetry Festival gives another performance opportunity and our annual school play in June is rehearsed and performed to a very high standard. Recent productions have included Aladdin, Oliver, Beauty and the Beast, Annie and an adaptation of The Lion King.
