Extra-curricular opportunities

There are a variety of extra curricular clubs that take place after school as well as homework club and sports matches. Information regarding the wide range of extra curricular clubs that are available can be found here.

The Swap-Shop

We want to reward students who demonstrate characteristics of the Cheam MANTRA in as many ways as possible. 

For Years 7 - 10 students can collect stamps at the swap shop during break on Tuesday's or Thursday's. One stamp is awarded for every 5 IRIS rewards they have received. These stamps can then be 'swapped' for a wide variety of items for the swap shop after school also on a Tuesday or Thursday. Items available include sweets, chocolates, popcorn, table tennis bats, refillable water bottles, free breakfast or lunch, £10/£20 and £50 vouchers, headphones, EarPods, Kindles and many more. Students can also choose to spend their rewards on planting trees or even donating to a charity of their choice.
