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 across school 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.



Yoga Club is run  weekly by Mrs Gardner for our Reception 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. 



TAG Rugby and Netball

Mr Peeetoom runs TAG Rugby training for children in KS2 after school on a Wednesday. He also runs a netball club at lunchtimes for children from Y4 upwards.

Peace Proms Choir

Miss Tither leads our Peace Proms Choir. The group enjoy learning new songs and rehearsing them for performance at the Peace Proms concert at the arena in Liverpool. In addition, the choir have also sang at Ormskirk Hospital and school events. 




Miss Clark leads our computing club. The club learn how to use different technology and have fun taking part in different digital projects.
