The croquet club will also be running a summer school for 9-12 year olds during the first week of the school holidays. Week commencing 27th July.

This will offer a programme of mallet and croquet activities and skill development between 2pm and 4pm each day during the week.

The cost for the summer school is £10 per student and that can be deducted against the membership fee for those students who wish to continue with our junior club.

To find out more and to register please contact Ian Draper at or on 07962 448848.


Giant JC Superhero Challenge

Can you scoot?   Or hop?  Or run?  Or climb the stairs?  Or sing?  Or make your bed?   Then we need you.  


The Friends of John Clifford are calling all JC Superheroes to help us in our Giant JC Superhero Challenge.   Our super important mission is to raise as much money as we can to restore the outdoor learning area and to provide new books and games for the classrooms damaged by the flooding.


What’s more for every fundraising target that we hit a member of staff will go under an ice bucket and record it for us.     Mr Gooch is first up and when we hit £250 he will go under an ice bucket … Mrs Waring needs a bit more persuading so we need to raise a bit more if we want to see Mrs Waring get iced!


Like many residents and businesses in Beeston, John Clifford School fell victim to the heavy rain on 17th June.  The damage was extensive.   We know that many of you are keen to help and so we would love to encourage all the JC family to pick a challenge and get sponsored for it.  


Your challenge could be:


  • Climbing the stairs multiple times
  • A scoot-a- thon
  • A roller skate-a-thon
  • A mini marathon run or walk
  • A trampolining challenge
  • A skip-a-thon
  • Making your own lunch for a week
  • Making your bed for a week
  • Hundreds of laps of your garden
  • Giving up your Nintendo Switch for a week (ok maybe just a day)


You can choose any challenge you fancy.    You then need to get sponsorship and within the next few days details of our Just Giving page will be shared via social media and through school.


We’d love it if you could wear something a superhero might wear (a cape, a mask etc) when you do your challenge and perhaps you could take a photo  and upload it to your class home learning blog.


So all  JC Superheroes get thinking … what could you do as part of our Giant JC Superhero Challenge?
