Extra Curricular Clubs
Horley Infant School has, in the past, run extra-curricular clubs for children. These clubs have been previously been run by our Teaching Assistants and run between 3:00 and 4:00. Unfortunately, due to staffing limitations and capacity challenges, these are no longer running.
However, we do run a number of after-school clubs run by external providers. You can find a list of internal and external provided clubs below.
Externally Organised Clubs
JEM TKD is a Taekwondo Club which is run by the talented Mrs. Whiting, who also works within school. JEM Taekwondo has had the opportunity to help countless students learn a new sport, to be active and acquire self-defence skills. Taekwondo has so many benefits, not only physically, but also to the child’s learning within school. The most common thread from ‘parent & teacher feedback’ is the change they have seen in class. They have become so much more disciplined and focussed within their learning environment. Click/tap on their logo to find out more.
Be Active, Be Happy (George Hyde Football Club) George is local to the area and runs a number of different sporting clubs. This includes an after-school football club at Horley Infant School. All bookings and organisation is done externally to the school so please click/tap on the logo to find out more information from George and to book a place.

Inspire Academy of Dance Over the last 10 years Inspire Academy of Dance has grown to over 800 students dancing and performing in over 7 different locations including our own Dance Studio in Copthorne.

Internally Organised Clubs
These clubs no longer operate within school but if/when we have greater staffing capacity, we will look to arrange for these to take place again.
Art club is very popular. We offer an opportunity for the children to make different things each week. This may be clay work, painting, cutting, colouring, tracing and sticking. We do sometimes repeat some activities so if your child has been to art club before they may have already made some of the things.
Our children say they enjoy it “because we like making different pieces of art that we can’t make at home.”
Board Games Club is another popular opportunity for children to experience a range of games. They will have the chance to play games with their friends that have two players like ‘4 in a Row’ to Bingo where all the children can play together.
Children say they enjoy the club as alongside playing new games, it is a time to make new friends from other year groups.
Cooking Club is when children will have the opportunity to cook a variety of foods within the hour, from chocolate cornflake cakes to sausage rolls. We have a limited time to get things made and cooked, therefore, these are repeated each half term.
Dance Club – Children will learn how to enjoy the rhythm of music and how to move in a fun and uplifting way
Lego and Construction Club where the children are free to make whatever they dream up using lots of different construction. From Lego to Mobilo, large blocks, stickle bricks – the choice is endless.
Playground Games will develop social skills through playing various games with a partner and in a team. They will be shown lots of different games, from hockey to ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’ and participate in team games.
Purple Mash Computers use a variety of IT equipment to further develop their computing skills such as laptops, Bee bot programmable toys, software programs and the internet.
They will learn how they can use different programmes, how to draw pictures using just their finger on the mouse pad and writing stories to go with their pictures. They will even make robots do what the children want them to do. They will then be able to show you what they have learnt on your computers at home.
Sewing Club will offer the opportunity to learn how to thread their own needles, use different types of stitching and designs to make lots of things from a bookmark to bean bags.
Sewing club is enjoyed by both boys and girls. The children say “it’s fun because we have learned to sew and make things like bean bags”.
Well-being Club teaches the skills children need to navigate the twists and turns of life and the self-awareness to recognise when they need to listen to themselves and take a pause.
