More than just Football! We have four different football classes each tailored to a different age group. However, we have two core beliefs that we take into every session. Firstly, we believe in something we call “Play not Push”. It means teaching football in a fun, pressure-free environment. We want to give children a positive introduction to sport as a whole, not just football, so they’re more likely to stay healthy and active throughout their lives. Secondly, we believe football can be educational. Coached in the right way it can stimulate imagination and aid early development skills such as learning colours and numbers, following instructions and playing as a team. It’s an approach that has bagged us numerous awards and helped us expand globally over the last 12 years. And like all our Kickers, we never stop learning. We’re continually improving and updating our classes, based on feedback and input from child health specialists as well as our network of over 1,500 football coaches worldwide. We have Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning classes running in Thame.

Enjoy singing? Why not join us - the chorus welcomes new members, who are keen to join a friendly choir, which is looking forward to an interesting and challenging future. Our rehearsals are held on Monday evenings (term-time only), 7.30pm to 9.30pm. New members are not auditioned. We have no plans to change this. Those people who want to sing solo parts are auditioned.
Please feel free to attend any rehearsal as a "taster", asking anyone to introduce you to a member of the committee ‚Äì or, if you prefer, phone or email us about joining. We look forward to hearing from you.

Lord Williams’s School is a thriving and popular comprehensive school. We promote high quality teaching and learning, attracting talented, committed and conscientious teachers who produce stimulating and challenging learning activities helped by experienced support staff. Teamwork is a key feature of our work.
We pride ourselves on the pastoral care of our students, helping young people to have a sense of belonging and respecting their individuality. They in turn are encouraged to have a respect and a care for others and to value the environment in which we all live and work. This is underpinned by a clear code of behaviour.
We have strong partnerships with parents, governors, primary schools and the local community. Through sponsorship and opportunities for work experience, we have developed important links with local businesses.
