Every child in KS1 and KS2 is offered a sports club throughout the year.
Our PE specialist, Mr Saunders, and Ipswich Town Foundation offer multi sports clubs across the year, alternating between Key Stages.
We also have a specialist Tennis club available to children in Key Stage 2 for those wishing to pursue this sport. Coaching for this group is provided by the LTA accredited coach, Ross Wilson.
Ilketshall has linked with Rock Steady to offer professional music lessons during the week.
Parents can choose for their child to take part in these sessions once a week.
The children learn to play drums, guitar, keyboard or to sing and they join together to perform in their own class bands to a wide audience every term.
As an extension to our Woodlands School work EarthWake offer an after school club as well.
This is open to every child across the school on a term by term basis.
