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 children's 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 the school office. Running a school club is subject to DBS clearance and suitable qualifications.

Hertfordshire Maths Challenge
Four children, Gracie, Ronnie, Mila and Ellinor took part in the first round of the Year 5 Maths Challenge competition against approximately 30 other schools last week. They did incredibly well, working under pressure, solving all kinds of different mathematical problems. We are yet to find out the results but are very proud of them all! There will be a further 6 rounds of heats with the Grand Final being held in May.
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. We have previously been invited to perform at several concerts within the Stevenage Community. We even have our own special Choir uniform.
School Choir's Achievements 2019
Choir was suspended during 2020 due to Covid-19
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
On Wednesday 19th June, 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.
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.
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.
