At Preston Street we have a wide range of after school clubs and activities for all age ranges.
Most of our clubs are run by the Parent Council and Active Schools, but we also have football and running clubs which are run by a mixture of school staff, visiting coaches and parents.
There is a small charge for Parent Council and Active Schools clubs, to cover costs. However, our football and running clubs are provided free of charge. Mrs Nimbley also kindly runs a free P5-7 Reading Club.
Please note that in addition to the clubs listed on the timetable, there is a new Bilingual Buddies club, which allows pupils in P6 and P7 get together and learn languages from each other. For details of this club please contact email@example.com or ask at the school office.

Thanks to Fiona Watson from our Parent Council and Tom Scott, our Active Schools Coordinator, for working closely with the school to ensure we are able to offer a range of high quality activities to all pupils.
Thanks also to Boroughmuir Blaze for their support in providing fantastic basketball opportunities, both at school and at the Crags Sports Centre. This session, we run a P4-7 basketball club at Preston Street on a Monday afternoon, led by a visiting coach; and a P1-3 club at the Crags on a Thursday afternoon. We also have a special P4-7 girls’ section at the Crags on Wednesdays.
As well as this, a group of our P6-7 students are participating in the Junior NBA competition on Friday afternoons – a fantastic opportunity which allows our pupils to compete in regular organised basketball games with other schools in a fun and friendly environment.
This session, we are running three football teams, as listed below. If your child is interested in joining, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ask at the school office. Participation in football is free with all equipment provided by the school.
There is a P4-5 team which is coached by one of our parents, Stavros Bourmpoulas. Games usually take place on Saturday mornings from 9:30 – 10:30, with players asked to arrive for 9am.
The P6-7 team is coached by one of our former pupils, James Kerr. Games usually take place on Saturday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30, with players asked to arrive for 9:45am.
P4-7 girls football
Our girls’ section meet at the Meadows tennis courts at 9:30am on Saturday mornings for training and / or games. The team is currently coached by Keith Sutton and Gael Cochrane, two of our parents.
Girls are free either to join the dedicated girls’ section, or the main P4-5 / P6-7 teams.
We are always looking for parents to help out at all age groups – either by holding training through the week or helping with games at the weekend. If you would be interested in helping out, please contact email@example.com to get in touch. We are particularly looking for someone to take our current P3 year group on Saturday mornings.
