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.
Here is our new April – June timetable and booking form.
Please note that our cycling club (starts 24th April) and various cluster sports clubs are not contained on these forms. Full details will be sent out to parents this week by paper – ask at the office if you don’t have a copy.
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 term, the Friday afternoon tournaments will be held once a week, with separate tournaments for P6-7 boys, P4-5 boys and P4-7 girls. Full details will be circulated to pupils via the school.
This session, we are offering football at the following age groups:
Our P3-4 team (boys and girls together) currently play in the Saturday morning fixtures which restart on Saturday 22nd April. . We are grateful to the parent helpers who have helped get this team started. Fixtures run until Saturday 27th May

We also have P3-6 football training (boys and girls) which is run by parents on a Sunday morning at the Meadows from 11am – 12 noon.
