Breakfast Club runs each morning from 7.30am to 8am. This is open to children in Years 2 to 6. A continental breakfast is served four days a week, with a hot option on a Friday. (Please note children arriving after 7.50am will not receive a breakfast but may still be charged.) This is currently suspended due to COVID-19 but we hope to resume provision in the Michaelmas Term 2021.
Nursery and Pre-Prep children can attend from 8am. Aftercare is available at the end of the school day (3.30pm) on a paid basis according to the number of sessions required. These sessions are again of considerable assistance to parents, and dovetail neatly with the extra-curricular activities available to Pre-Prep children on particular days. Care is taken to maintain the requisite staff: children ratios, and the children experience a range of stimulating indoor and outdoor activities over the course of the week.
In Prep wrap-around care is provided via the four Houses – St. Margaret’s and St. Monica’s for the girls and St. Philip’s and St. George’s for the boys. The cost is covered in the fees so there is no additional charge.
From 8.00 am our children are free to play and relax there with their friends before the start of morning school. They can enjoy table tennis, table football, billiards, board games and much more! At the end of the day, our late pick-up facility enables them to play games until they are collected and if they stay beyond 5pm we will sit them down to complete their homework before the last pick up at 5.45pm.
The children love the houses so much they often don’t want to go home at the end of the school day! Since children aged 7-11 share the same House, it’s rather like being in a large family with lots of brothers or sisters. And numerous competitions and other events ensure healthy inter-house rivalry!
