Pre-school supervision begins at 8:00am. Children may not be left before this time. Upper Prep boys can arrive from 8:00am and be supervised on the playground. Lower Prep boys can also arrive from 8:00am and join the early morning club in the Studio where they are supervised by two or three Teaching Assistants. Please find below timings of the school day, this includes a daily tutor period. There is a staggered collection time at the end of the day.
The school day begins with registration at 8.20am, followed by lessons through to lunch, with a mid-morning break. Lunchtime is an hour and boys will go to the dining room at some point between 12.05pm and 12.40pm, depending which year they are in. A break follows this. Afternoon lessons follow lunch, with a short fifteen minute break at 2.35pm for boys in the Upper Prep.
