Urgent News

Extended Day


From September 2014 we are delighted to be offering wrap-a-round care for our nursery children. This means in addition to the 8.45am start time and staggered finishing time currently offered, boys will have the option of arriving at 8.20 and being collected at 3pm. We hope this will offer our working parents more flexibility at the same time as giving those boys capable of coping with longer hours a taste of what is to come in Reception! 


In the mornings a Breakfast Club runs in the main school dining room from 7.30 to 8.20 am, which is open to all boys over the age of 5. Boys can come to this either to eat or just to be supervised. Cereals, toast and orange squash or water is available. There is a charge of £3.00 per day for those who eat and £1.65 per day for those who are just supervised.

From 8.00 am the school gate opens for early arrivers and boys can come into school and play in the playground under the supervision of the Gap Year student. At 8.25am the Gap Year student takes the Pre-Prep boys to their playground and the playground supervision is taken over by a member of the teaching staff prior to 8.40 am registration taking place. 


This Junior After School Club runs from 3.30 pm to 5.15 pm and is open to boys in Year 4 and below, but boys do need to be over the age of 5.  Boys at the Pre-Prep are collected at 3.30 pm and brought up to the main school.  Year 3 and 4 boys can join the After School Club when their school day finishes at 3.40 pm.

There is a separate Senior After School Club which runs from 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm.

Boys in Year 3 and 4 may stay in After School Club if they cannot be collected by 5.15 pm, but this option is only available on a very occasional basis and is not available for Pre-Prep boys.

There is no charge for After School Club for boys who are in the Junior or Senior Schools, or for boys at Pre-Prep who are looked after in After School club until their oldest brother finishes his school day. There is a daily charge for other Pre-Prep boys; for those who leave before 4.30 pm, this is £3.60 per day and for those who leave between 4.30 pm and 5.15 pm it is £6.50 per day.


There is supervised prep every day for boys in Year 3 upwards. This runs from 4.00 pm until 5.30 pm and boys may stay for as long as they like during this time. Boys in Year 3 and 4 may go into After School Cub before and after they do their prep. Boys in Year 5 and above have to stay in the Prep room until 5.00 pm. After that they may transfer to the After School Club if they have finished their work.
