There are many after school clubs, voluntarily led by Teachers, such as painting, ICT, Rounders, Scrap-booking, and Multi-skills. Additionally we host a growing number of clubs run by outside agencies at a small cost to parents; these include art, football, dance, drama and hockey clubs. Swimming lessons are provided in the summer term for our Y3 pupils by qualified instructors at the town pool. Tuition is available for various instruments provided by peripatetic music tutors, (at a charge to parents). At the moment brass, woodwind, guitar and recorder tuition are offered.
A regular programme of day visits and visitors, e.g. woodland walks, Museum trips, castle visits, a day exploring the Belvoir estate, a farm visit, and even a Teddy Bears picnic! We organise a 4 day residential trip staying at a PGL centre for our Y6 pupils every September, this incorporates outdoor adventurous activities which really help our children build confidence and social skills in a different environment- as well as give themselves a variety of physical challenges. Our pupils also take part in music evenings, various performances to parents and enjoy regular shows presented by various theatre companies. The name ‘Malcolm Sargent’ was given to the school by the founder governors in 1970, who noted that Malcolm Sargent, the internationally renowned conductor, had been a pupil in 1905 at the school in whose temporary buildings they then occupied.
Sir Malcolm Sargent, brought up and educated in Stamford, rose from humble beginnings, through hard work and determination, to become a major figure transcending the world of music. He remains an inspiration for our school. Our primary school caters for children between the ages of four and eleven years.
It opened in 1970 with fourteen children and has occupied the present building since September 1974 with a number of extensions. It is for day pupils only. Formerly grant maintained it moved to Lincolnshire County Council Foundation status in 1999.
