After School Skateboard Club in Lewisham

We were approached by Bonus Pastor College, a secondary school in Lewisham at the end of summer to see if we could run a skateboard class after school hours. We were happy to oblige and currently run a class with up to 20 students.

We use the tarmac ball court to run the lesson, bringing a kicker ramp & all the pads and equipment. The ramp allows us to train all the skills in the Beginner Programme. We’ve provided access to the Beginner App to track and test their knowledge of the skills we are working on.

There is a mix of boys and girls from years 8 to 11.  There is wide range of skill levels with some bringing their own boards, and working on more advanced skills like Shuv-Its and Ollies. We’ve pictured above the novice students working on their balance practice for The Drop In. A few of the more novice students have enjoyed it so much they have bought their own boards and are practicing on their own time. A few have their Christmas presents lined up already.

Skateboarding as Enrichment activity

Skateboarding is a great activity for an Enrichment Programme. Enrichment Programmes feature activities that extend children’s learning beyond the usual subjects at School and are beneficial in broadening students’ horizons.

If you’d like to know more about enrichment activities or running a skateboarding after school club at your school please contact us.

  1. Please can you send me details on how you would operate running an afterschool club for primary school children and what you would do and what you would expect the school to provide. Look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Pauline. We usually cater for 10 students. We provide all the equipment that is required. We also provide ramps once the kids have reached that level. We provide each student with access to a Learning Account which keeps learning structured, student-led and goal orientated.
      The classes are a little more expensive than other activities because of the expense around providing the equipment. Just drop me an email if you have any other questions.
