The School Day

The school day starts at 8:35am and lessons finish at 3:50pm Monday to Friday; there are no lessons on Saturdays.  Morning break is from 10:10 to 10:30am and the afternoon break is from 2:35 to 2:45pm.

For Pre School children lunch is scheduled from 12 noon to 1:25pm, followed by the rest of the Prep School from 12:15 to 1:25pm.  This allows for plenty of play time and extra-curricular activities during the lunch period.  Afternoon registration takes place at 1:25pm with lessons starting at 1:30pm.

Additional supervised ‘wrap-around care’ is available FREE of charge, before and after school for all day pupils by joining the Breakfast and/or Supper Clubs.  Children can be dropped off from 7:30am and picked up before 5:30pm.

The Dining Hall is open from 8am, prior to which girls can be dropped at their age appropriate boarding house.  Supper is served from 5:45pm to 6:15pm and girls can be collected from the boarding houses after this time if required.  The school is very flexible and encourages ‘wrap-around care’ bookings to be made at least 48 hours in advance.   A nominal charge for catering is made and is added to the term’s fees.

After-school activities and clubs are available if you wish your daughter to stay from 3:50pm until 5:35pm.  This can include supervised prep for day and boarding students.  If your daughter stays after 5:45pm she will join in boarders’ supper time and activities until she is collected.
