Gym Club

This is a highly popular club run by an experienced coach. The focus is on fun and fitness rather than competition.

Who, When & Where:

Three classes run every Wednesday during term time in SMPS school hall (subject to hall use for parent consultations etc). There are approximately 22 spaces per session. Children are allocated to classes roughly by year group.  Class times are as follows:

Juniors  3.30-4.10    /   Intermediate 4.15-5.00   /  Seniors  5:00-5.45

Only children attending an after school club are allowed in the school building after 3:30pm and are only permitted in the allocated Club room.  Children must be signed in and out by the After School Care Club person on door duty OR by the individual club alternative. Parents/carers should drop & collect children outside the school’s main door and not accompany children in to the school.  

Club Convenors: Andrea Taylor; Lizzie Macnamara and Kirsty Taylor

Club email:  SMPSGYMCLUB@outlook.com or gym-club@sm-pc.org

Tutor Name:  Gavin Chalmers, a fully qualified and highly experienced gymnastics instructor.

Allocation of spaces: Priority is given to existing students to allow then to build on skills already learned. This popular club has a waiting list and places are offered as they become available. Please contact the club convenors at the email above if you would like your child to be added to the waiting list.

Club Convenor’s children are always given a priority place in the club. Please contact the Club Convenor should you wish to take advantage of this privilege by offering to take on this position in future. 

Cost: £3.40 per class

A child’s space is not guaranteed until payment is received. All payment is due PRIOR to clubs starting. Failure to do so could result in your child not being admitted in to the club. 

Cheques are to be written to SMPC, envelopes marked ‘Gymnastics Club’ & posted in the Clubs Box by the Janitor’s Office (Main School).  

Parent Volunteers required: NO

Refunds: Very occasionally classes need to be cancelled (e.g. instructor sickness). SMPC policy is that refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the individual club’s discretion as offering refunds when this happens involves a lot of work for relatively small amounts of money. If, after accepting & paying for a place, your child subsequently does not take the place / drops out / changes their mind, a refund will not be given

SMPC Code of Conduct

Parents are kindly reminded that SMPC Clubs only operate thanks to a school parent who volunteers to act as Club Convenor & run the administrative side of the club. Parents are requested to respect the efforts of each Club Convenor.
