School Clubs & Choir

The staff at Almond Hill provide a wide range of extra curricular clubs that run at either lunchtime or after school.  All of our clubs are organised by teachers and teaching assistants. We try to organise clubs in response to the childrens’ interests resulting in a wide variety ranging from early morning sport to a home learning club.

If you are interested in organising a club please contact Mrs Lovelock. (Running a school club is subject to DBS clearance and suitable qualifications).

Gardening Club Update 

For the second year in a row we have won the sunflower competition for our magnificent sunflowers - well done to all of those who helped to grow them.

To help keep our grounds at Almond Hill looking beautiful, we would like to grow some more plants over the year. If you have any spare winter plants (e.g., pansies) or bulbs (e.g., snowdrops, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils),we would gratefully receive any donations. 

They also made an impressive £46.90 at their fruit and vegetables sale on Friday. All the money will go in to their gardening fund to help them over the coming year.


School Choir (Year 5 and 6)


The school choir is run by Mrs Cleaves and is made up of year 5 & 6 children. We rehearse once a week but often have extra rehearsals when we've got a special concert coming up. Last year, we were invited to perform at several concerts within the Stevenage Community. We even have our own special Choir uniform.

School Choir's Achievements

December 2019

The school choir have taken part in several performances over the past week. Our biggest performance was the concert on Saturday night as guest performers alongside the Stevenage Male Voice Choir and The Letchworth Salvation Army Band. The children sang their hearts out on every occasion and were absolutely brilliant. Many people highly complimented their performance including the Mayor and the Musical Director of The Male Voice Choir. Mrs Cleaves would like to thank the choir for the outstanding commitment they have shown this term and would also like to extend a huge thank you to parents for supporting these events

June 2019

On Weds 19th, the choir performed at the Stevenage Primary Schools concert. Their performance was outstanding and the children received many compliments from the audience- including parents from other schools. Mrs Cleaves would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the children who have shown such great commitment to the choir this year and to their parents for supporting us.

May 2019 

Well done to all the choir performers in Friday's charity concert which was in aid of the NSPCC. The children sang their hearts out resulting in another outstanding performance that was highly complimented by many of the other performers as well as members of the audience.

March 2019

Well done to the choir who performed beautifully at the Mayor's Civic Service on Sunday. Their singing was complimented by many people attending the service. A special thank you is also extended to the parents who supported this weekend performance.

December 2018

Well done to the choir who have taken part in three Christmas concerts over the last week. At all three performances they sang beautifully and brought some Christmas cheer to many people.
