The school operates the same daily routine from Monday to Friday.
Breakfast Club is available between 7.30am and 8.00am providing breakfast and the opportunity to chat with friends.
The school day begins at 8.20am with registration.
Assembly is an essential and enjoyable part of our day. We welcome children of all religious denominations and the major Christian festivals of Christmas, Easter and harvest are celebrated. Primarily, however, assembly is a time to reflect on human and spiritual values and to share successes and celebrations.
Drinks and snacks are provided in the classrooms at morning break. Lunch at 12.00pm is served in the spacious and bright main school dining room, where our caterers provide a healthy menu suitable for prep school aged children.
Lessons end at 4.00pm Our co-curricular programme and supervised prep for year 3 girls upwards both run from 4.00pm to 5.00pm. After-school care is available for all children from 4.00pm to 6.00pm.

A close and effective relationship between home and school is vital. There are plenty of formal and informal occasions for parents and staff to exchange views on academic and social development.
It is customary for the parents of pre-prep children to drop their children off in the classroom and then to take the opportunity to talk to the members of staff, look at books and the work on display. There are regular evenings held for parents to discuss their children's progress with teachers.
The academic year begins with staff presenting to parents an outline of the topics covered in that class. Written reports are sent home twice a year.
