We run a variety of clubs to extend the learning of our pupils at Our Lady of Fatima Primary School. These are delivered by a combination of our teachers and fully qualified coaching staff.

Each term children are given the opportunity to extend their learning through our After School Clubs. They are asked to return a signed letter to school in order to gain a place. Places are limited and are offered on a 'first come first served' basis.

We usually ask for a small contribution towards the cost of delivering the clubs. This may be to purchase specialist resource or help fund a coach/teacher to deliver the activity. We will always try to keep this cost to a minimum. Any money must be paid in advance of the club taking place.

A variety of clubs is offered each term including activities developing skills in Mathematics, football, dance, tennis, multi skills, Coding, Science and Lego Robotics.

We have also forged strong links with Lordswood Girls' School who offer dance and multi skills clubs, usually during the Spring/Summer terms.

Each after school club begins promptly at 3.35pm and finishes by 5.00pm, depending on the club. Please make arrangements for your child to be collected from the school reception area. The clubs are always extremely popular and enjoyed by all.

Computer Games Club

The After School Computer Games Club takes place on Mondays and has been a great success during Spring Term.

Each session has been run by School for Gaming which is a social enterprise run by a former pupil of the school, Chris Hignell. It has been developed with support from Lloyds Bank School of Social Entrepreneurs.

The main aims of the group were to develop digital literacy, as well as other life skills such as working collaboratively and leading teams.

Each week, teams were given a task to complete using ‘Minecraft’. Each task was linked to Our Lady of Fatima School’s Creative Curriculum and included a strict success criterion that could only be met if groups planned and worked together.

Due to the success of the club, we plan to run further sessions in the Summer Term.


Football Club

We have a school football team and enjoy taking part in matches with local schools and through the Catholic Partnership. We play in a range of eleven and seven a-side league and cup competitions.

The Aston Villa Football Club, which is run by professional coaches, is held on Thursdays after school.

The aim of the club is to have fun whilst learning a range of new skills and developing teamwork.

Football Team

Football Team 2018/19,

Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Primary School Football Team currently plays in the Joe Brennan Trophy Competition (Catholic schools' seven a side tournament) and the Harborne School League (local schools' seven a side).

They also take part in the annual Premier League School Football Competition, competing against local other schools.

Netball Team

Netball Team 2018/19.

Girls from Year 6 represent our school’s Netball team.

Many Upper KS2 girls enjoy representing the school’s team and look forward to their training during games lessons and after school sessions. Some of the girls have netball experience from local Little League but the majority have not played as part of a team before and therefore enjoy these experiences and challenges.

There is an opportunity for the girls to play matches against local schools and those organised by the Birmingham Catholic Schools’ Primary Netball organisation. The girls will also enter the Birmingham Catholic Primary Netball Annual Tournament held in March. Good luck girls!

Robotics Club

Our Lady of Fatima Primary School is excited to now have its very own Robotics Club.

Supporting the development of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics within the school, small groups of children are given the opportunity to create their own robot using our very own Lego Mindstorm kits.

The club takes place on Thursday lunchtimes, with pupils being selected to attend on a termly basis. We look forward to entering our first team in the First Lego League!


Science Club

Our Lady of Fatima School has started a weekly Science Club in conjunction with staff from Oldbury Academy. Pupils have an opportunity to further develop their scientific skills through activities and investigations in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. The Club offers separate opportunities for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils and has proved to be very popular.


Sing and Play Club

The Sing and Play After School Club started in the summer term 2015 with a group of budding and enthusiastic Ukulele players. By the end of the first session, they had all learnt two chords and two songs then there was just no stopping them. They are now working their way through the song book. Well done to all the players and their talented teacher.


UK Maths Challenge Club

UK Maths Challenge Club

This club aims to meet the needs of more able Mathematicians.

Each year pupils from Year 5 and Year 6 have the opportunity to enter the UK Maths Challenge which takes place in the Spring Term.

The club runs during Monday lunchtimes, challenging pupils to further develop their logic and thinking skills.
