Extra Curricular Clubs

Here at Westhead Lathom St James' CE Primary we are fully committed to providing a broad, rich curriculum which includes our extra-curricular offer. We want all of our pupils to experience, 'Life in all its fullness,' John 10:10 in order that all pupils regardless of their backgrounds or starting points flourish into confident young people. Here is a flavour of the wide provision we have on offer. 


Mrs Showering leads our Gardening Club. We have been recently planting new apple trees on our grounds which were donated by the West Lancs Community Food Growing Project. In addition, some of our exisiting apple trees have yielded bumper crops which are being made into apple pies for our first ever 'Pie and Patter' event for the local community. 



All Year 6 pupils are encouraged to carry out voluntary work at home or in the community, learn a new skill, try a new sport and learn about another culture. Mrs. Tither leads Rotary Club.


We love Wednesdays! The chefs provide the lucky staff with samples of their superb menus and are planning their own cookery book. Mrs. Whalley-Smith plans fabulous menus.


Ethos Group

This group of pupils helps our headteacher, Miss Clark make sure that the ethos of the school is warm, welcoming, Christian, inclusive and reflects the values we have chosen to guide our learning for the whole of each child. 

School Council

Representatives from children in years 3,4 5 and 6 speak up politely to represent the views of their peers in order to improve systems in school . e.g. playground leaders; work with the community; monitor speeding and parking issues; decide which charity needs our support next; and choose which playground toys we should buy.


Collective worship is held on a daily basis for all children in school and led by Rev Sephton monthly. Each day is led by either Miss Clark, our Headteacher or one of our teaching staff.  



The team are all in Year 5. Both girls and boys are keen to make everyone reduce the amount of waste and rubbish, re-use as much as we can and re-cycle everything possible.



Yoga Club is run  weekly by Mrs Gardner for our Reception and Year 1 children. It is one of our most popular clubs. The little children love to practise all the different yoga positions and enjoy the peaceful, calm environment that is created. 


Chess Club


Chess is played at lunch-times during the colder months from Reception to Year 6. The club is run by our Welfare Assistants. The children love to beat the adults! The older children help to teach the younger children too.

Forestry Club

Mrs Glover leads our Forestry School. Every child is provided with the opportunity, on a weekly basis, to experience this fun and exciting way to learn in a safe outdoor environment on the school field, weather permitting.


Lego Club


Children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 enjoy team-work challenges in Lego Club. Lego Club is run by Mrs. Cusick for two half-terms per year. 

Mad Science


“Mad Science,” scientists run a weekly club for children from reception to year 6 for one half-term every year. The children get hands-on with science in the most imaginative and stimulating ways possible. They watch spectacular demonstrations, discuss scientific phenomena and take home things that they have made themselves like bouncy balls, slime and more!

Craft Club


Children in years 3,4,5 and 6 have the chance to attend craft club through the year. Craft Clubs are run by Mrs. Gardner and Mrs. Jones. Most recently, the children have been making, ” A World in a Bag.”
