Rainbow Club Supplementary School

We are a dynamic and effective supplementary school that has been successfully raising the attainment and improving the well-being of refugees and asylum seekers for over 11 years.

About the Rainbow Club

We welcome children aged from 4 to 11 years old from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds.

Qualified teachers and experienced volunteers combine to deliver high quality English and Maths lessons tailored to the specific needs of the students.  Each set of four students has a dedicated volunteer teaching assistant to help them develop and succeed.

We partner with Fairbeats! to provide unique music lessons on a wide range of instruments and we enhance the student’s extra curricula experiences through out regular P.E and Art lessons and our termly school trips and museum collaborations.  The School prioritises refugees and asylum seekers in south London, and children who are not yet in mainstream schools.

Rainbow Club has signed the pledge to support the School of Sanctuary vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. 

We are the only Saturday School in the area to cater directly to this demographic and are very proud of the achievements our pupils have made.

School Information

The classes take place every Saturday from 9:15am-1:00pm (term time only) at:

St Saviours Primary School
