It is said that 'a busy child is a happy child' and the Cheam day is jam packed full with action!

There are numerous opportunities for the children to develop their own individual skills and interests in a wealth of extra-curricular activities. Every Thursday in the winter terms the children have 'Activities', an afternoon when they can pursue their hobbies in a timetabled and supervised environment. The list of extra-curricular options is an exhaustive one and there is something for everybody at Cheam.
