Clubs & After School

Breakfast

Many of our students arrive at school by bus and we recognise that the journey here can mean they are up early – maybe not that bright eyed and bushy tailed when leaving home!

The school provides a Breakfast Club for all students in the canteen and whether they wish to have something to eat or chat in the warm they are welcomed from 8:15am onwards.


Lunchtimes

At Caldew we are always looking to provide activities for students to engage in at lunchtimes. All students are welcome to visit the Library, its computer suite as well as using the computers in the open access areas around the school.

In addition Drama, Sport, Music, Technology and other clubs run so that students can take part in activities they enjoy. They enable students to develop their interests with other students across year groups, membership is certainly not exclusive and all are welcome to join in.

For Performing arts clubs working towards “Caldew the Musical” please go to MR2 to see a member of the Performing Arts Staff at 12:20 and they will take students to lunch so that rehearsals can start at 12:35pm.

After School / Extra Curricular

Caldew School offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities for our students and we encourage all of them to make the most of the opportunities available to them. Alongside the regular series of planned activities students take part in competitive sporting fixtures and school productions.

All after school activities run from 3.30pm-4.30pm unless otherwise stated.

There is a Games Night bus for those students wishing to take part in Games Night after school. The bus stops at several places in Carlisle. Please speak to a member of PE staff for a letter containing information on the bus.

Year 12 and 13 students can use the multi-gym when it’s not in use but must attend an induction session with Mr Butler beforehand.

GCSE Art Club is available after school but can vary days so please check with Mrs Rhodes before attending.
