Before and After School
Many of our parents are busy people and we can help by providing care for children before and after school, and overnight if needed.
Children are supervised from 8.40 a.m. with Registration taking place at 8.50 a.m.
In the mornings children can arrive for Breakfast Club from 8.00 a.m. onwards.
After school activities run from 4.15 to 5 p.m., with school minibuses departing at 5.15 Monday – Thursday and at 4.15 on Fridays. If needed, you can book a place for your child at Boarders’ Supper at 6.00 p.m. (any student staying on for this joins the boarding community from 5 p.m.). From 6.30 to 8.00 p.m. we run Boarders’ Prep, which is a supervised homework session, so you can collect them at any time up to 8.00 p.m.
Of course children can always stay the night under our flexi-boarding scheme. Children love spending evenings in the boarding house with its friendly atmosphere, fun activities and professional supervision.
Day pupils should wait to be collected in the area between the Senior School and the Prep School buildings, well away from motor traffic. Any students who remain on site after 4.15 p.m. must be in a supervised activity; any students who have not been collected after 5.15 p.m. will be supervised in the boys’ or girls’ boarding house until they are collected.
Day pupils must remain within the school grounds until they have been collected, or have boarded a school bus to ensure their safety. Pupils remain our responsibility and subject to school rules until they have been collected by parents.
After School Clubs and Activities
The extended day also means pupils and students can attend clubs and activities including, amongst others, modelling club, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, public speaking and daily sports options.
Prep Club – Let the school take the strain
Alongside all the other exciting things that go on after school, can we remind everyone about Prep Club, which runs from 4.10 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. every day Monday to Thursday in the Resource Room in the Main School House.
A quiet hour in which to get homework completed under the kindly, but firm gaze of a member of staff who will help with any difficult bits and offer support in a calm, distraction-free environment.
Children can then go home or stay for supper, happy in the knowledge that they have no outstanding homework.
