School Day

Pupils are allowed into classrooms from 8.20am but the school opens at 8.00am with an Early Birds Club, held in the hall. This is to enable parents to drop off their children at a more suitable time for them, or to accommodate siblings of pupils required for choir or instrumental practice from 8.00am. The Early Birds Club is supervised by a teacher and a teaching assistant.

Lessons or assemblies normally start at 8.35 am and morning break is from 10.00 to 10.20am.

Lunch break is between 12.10 and 1.30 pm with different year groups attending at staggered times.

The Infant Department day finishes at 3.10 pm and the Junior Department at 3.40pm. Some after-school activities and sports fixtures may continue to 4.30pm or later as advised by the P.E. Department. Children in the Infant Department may wait in the Late Room from 3.10 to 3.40pm to wait for older siblings, by prior arrangement.

From Year 3, pupils may attend Homework Club on Monday to Thursday from 3.40 to 4.30pm, again by prior arrangement. A small charge is made for this.
