We have our say at NPS!

We are made up of elected members from each class from P4- P7.

It's important that we take care of our fab school and suggest ways that we could improve it.

Get active and have fun with a fully qualified IFA sporting coach!! Come along and learn a new skill or develop your existing skills!



Board Games Club

Come along and play both traditional and modern board games! Why not learn how to play a game that you've never played before?


>>> Thursday


We love sports so much at NPS that we couldn't decide on one in particular this term to focus on. Each week we get to play a different sport!






At stem club we incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths activities.

We do loads of experiments!




After School Clubs

The After School Clubs change every term at NPS to allow everyone to experience a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. We encourage everyone to try something new!

All After School Clubs begin at 3pm and are over at 3:45pm

In addition to After School Clubs we now offer Interests Groups to the children in P4-7.

As always the children were given the opportunity to voice their interests. Interest groups for this term include; French, Puzzles, Art skills and Scripture Union.

Transfer Club

This club is for children wishing to do the AQE or GL Transfer Tests to go to a Grammar school when they leave P7. It helps to prepare the children with the skills and knowledge needed for either tests. The children benefit from working in a small group with the P6 and P7 teachers. For more information please ask Mr Davidson.


Music Tuition and Choir

Why not take the opportunity to learn a musical instrument? We offer piano, woodwind and brass tuition during the school day at NPS.

We also encourage children to get involved in singing and performing as part of the School Choir.


All talents are celebrated at NPS!
