After School Clubs

At Preston Street we have a wide range of after school clubs and activities for all age ranges.

Our clubs are run by a mixture of:

  • School staff;
  • Parent volunteers;
  • Visiting coaches / instructors, including ‘Active Schools’ coaches.

 

Many of our clubs are free of charge, including our football, running, reading and languages clubs. There is a small charge for some clubs, to cover costs of equipment and coaches etc. However financial assistance is always available – please contact Mrs Allan if you wish to discuss this in confidence.

Basketball action at the Crags Sports Centre.

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. There is also a weekly P5-7 fun tournament at the Crags on Friday afternoons, from 2 – 3:30pm – all pupils are welcome to attend.

 

Football club

This session, we are running three football teams, as listed below. If your child is interested in joining, please contact simon.maclean@prestonstreet.edin.sch.uk or ask at the school office. Participation in football is free with all equipment provided by the school.

P4-5 football

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.

P6-7 football

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.

Parent volunteers

We are always looking for parents to help out with football 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 simon.maclean@prestonstreet.edin.sch.uk to get in touch. We are particularly looking for someone to take our current P3 year group on Saturday mornings.
