Extra Curricular Activity

Oliver Parkes Agency have partnered with Xercise4life to provide an excellent array of extracurricular activities for all schools within London. Xercise4life has been delivering sports, fitness and arts to schools for over 15 years, enriching the curriculum in every one of the schools that they have worked with. Working in partnership with Oliver Parkes under one umbrella will enable us to offer a wider range of activities across a broad spectrum.

An extracurricular activity is invaluable in developing a pupil’s talents and practical skills. Lots of studies have been conducted on this very subject. The studies show that students who participate in them have higher grades, more positive attitudes toward school and higher academic aspirations. Our extracurricular activities cater for Breakfast, lunch and after school clubs; offering a wide range of activities for children of all abilities. Safeguarding is a very important part of our ethos, so all of our clubs are run in safe environments by fully trained professional personnel with enhanced DBS. Our activities range from gymnastics, Yoga, fencing to musical theatre and dance, there is something for every child; we have a solution for every school.

Extra-curricular is not only for pupils of the school we also run Wellbeing activities for the teachers and school staff.

Please contact us for any additional information regarding our extra-curricular activities that we can offer your school.
