We are part of the Rother Valley Enrichment Programme. This allows us to send our most gifted and talented students to attend a varied programme of sessions at other schools within the locality. The children can meet other like minded students and enjoy learning at a greater depth or perhaps a new skill.
Recent workshops have included:-
Year 3 Art Day
Year 4 Creative Art Day
KS1 Irish Dancing
Year 5 STEM Day where students joined a team currently working on a unique, high-technology project, focused around a 1000mph World land speed record attempt.
Year 4 Maths
We love to sing at Fittleworth! Our assemblies are always full of song. We have a thriving choir who perform at church and other local venues, particularly at Christmas.
The children in years 1-6 also have singing lessons with teachers form West Sussex Music Services and give termly concerts to parents. Below are our Year 4,5 and 6 children who performed for parents at the end of the Autumn term.
In addition four of our most talented sporting students have been chosen to participate in the Play Maker run by Aspire Coaching. The children meet monthly over an academic to participate in sports workshops to become sports leaders.
