The school day
Children may be dropped at school at 8am and report straight to their form rooms where form tutors will be ready to welcome them. No day pupils should arrive on the school site before 8am, unless by prior arrangement.
Breakfast can be booked if needed and there will be an additional charge which will be added to the end of term bill. Breakfast is in the dining hall from 8am.
The school day officially begins with registration in form rooms at 8:20am. In the event of a child arriving late (after the registration period) they must report to the School Reception to be marked present.
Lessons commence after registration or whole school assembly.
Afternoon lessons end at 4.30pm in the Prep School and 3.30pm in Pre-Prep.
The form tutors will dismiss the children at the end of the day. If there are any children who have not been picked up they will join late stay.
A child will only be allowed to go with someone other than their parent or guardian, if their form tutor has been notified in writing beforehand, stating the name of the ‘collector’ and who they are.
If you know you are going to be late to collect your child please telephone or email the School Reception to let staff know. If you can foresee a problem for a particular day, please let us know as soon as possible. With advance warning, we can make arrangements to help.
