Early Years and Junior School Wraparound Care

Breakfast Club (7.30 to 8.30am)

Breakfast Club is available from 7.30am and includes a hot or continental breakfast each day of the week.

Breakfast Club takes place in the Senior School Dining Hall (IG). Children are dropped off with a member of the Junior School team who supervise them at the Senior School.

At around 8.00am, after they have finished eating, children are taken to the Morning Care Room in the Junior School or to the Early Years Centre where they are able to play and get ready for the day ahead, which starts at 8.30am.

Children can attend as many or as few mornings per week as you wish, subject to availability.

Breakfast Club needs to be booked in advance – please see How to Book below.

Morning Care (8.00 to 8.30am)

Children can be dropped off between 8.00 and 8.30am directly in the Early Years Centre or at the Junior School Morning Care Room, even if they are not taking part in Breakfast Club. The school day starts at 8.30am. There is no additional charge for Morning Care and no need to book.

After School Care (3.20 to 6.30pm)

Junior School and Early Years children can join After School Care from the end of the day until 6.30pm.

On arrival, children are offered a healthy drink and snack. Children who stay between 5.30 and 6.30pm are accompanied to the Dining Hall (IG) in the Senior School for dinner.
