Knowledge Schools Foundation

Extra-Curricular

The Knowledge Schools Foundation Trust funds the extensive extra-curricular programme at The West London Free School. The aim is for children to participate in confidence and character building pursuits that develop them outside the classroom as well as in. There is no financial barrier to participation as all activities are delivered without charge. The Trust funds the programme via voluntary monthly donations from parents, grants from charitable trusts and donations from benefactors. 

The majority of the programme is delivered via after-school clubs. As well as complimenting the core curriculum, the clubs give pupils the opportunity to try new activities and develop new interests. Clubs on offer are listed below.

Music, Academic and most activity clubs are delivered on school premises. As the school has limited on-site sports facilities the majority of sports clubs and some activity clubs occur off-site at either Dukes Meadow, The University of Westminster Sports Grounds, Team Keane Sculling school (all in Chiswick), the sports hall at Kensington Primary Academy, or in Ravenscourt Park.

The Trust incurs significant costs in the transport of pupils to these venues.
