School Day

From Reception upwards, children should arrive for registration at 08:30 when teachers will be in their classrooms ready to welcome pupils who then have 15 minutes of form time ahead of lessons beginning promptly at 08.45. Children in Little Dragons are welcomed from 08:30 and should arrive by 09.00 for registration. All children may be dropped-off from 8.30am, but parents must not deliver them earlier than this to their classroom as teachers are busy preparing for the day ahead. 

  • Little Dragons and Reception have lunch at 11:50, followed by a playtime. Their afternoon session starts at 12:45 and finishes at 15:30.
  • Forms I, II and III stop for lunch at 12:30 followed by a playtime. Lessons recommence at 13:25. The school day finishes at 15:30 for Forms I and II and 16:00 for Form III.
  • Forms IV, V and VI stop for lunch at 13:10, followed by playtime. They recommence lessons at 14:05 and finish at 16:00.

Wrap-Around Care

We do offer a provision to drop-off at 08:00 for children in Little Dragons and Reception and older children may be able to attend a morning club subject to availability. Additional charges will apply. 

There is a late room for younger children (Reception – Form II) who have siblings in other classes, where they are looked after until 16.00. Pupils in Reception and above may attend optional after-school clubs which finish at 17:00 (unless otherwise stated). Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis and additional charges apply. 

Please see additional information in our Wrap-Around Care section for parents who wish to drop their children to the school earlier or collect later than our standard times.
