The Chess Club welcomes players of all ages and abilities. Chess sets are laid out for pupils to enjoy a game of chess before they go home. The LRC provides books to help new members understand the rules, and to give more advanced players helpful tips to improve their game play and strategy.
Reading Club takes place in the LRC. Reading Club is not just about reading books but offers competitions, quizzes and games based around books that pupils have read. In Advent Term, we have had a Roald Dahl Day Quiz, and entered a team for the 'Kid's Lit Quiz', an international reading quiz with the Northwest regional heats held at Bolton University. During the Trinity Term the club shadows the Carnegie Medal shortlist and submits reviews to the Carnegie website, as well as holding a party on the day that the winning book is announced.
Warhammer is a tabletop war game where two or more players compete against each other with "armies" of 20 mm - 50 mm heroic scale miniatures. Games are played on a tabletop decorated with model scenery in scale with the miniatures. There are different rules for movement, shooting, and combat, where action is dictated by the roll of a six-sided die. The club meets on a Thursday after school and welcomes players at all levels. Pupils are allowed to bring their own figures and scenery.
