Opening hours

The Pre-prep operates a 12 – 15 week term structure. Full dates available for download below. The core school day is 8:45am to 3:30pm. Children can be dropped off at our playground from 8:30am to have a short play time before the start of the day. When the bell rings at 8:45am, the class teacher meets the children in the playground.
The core school day finishes at 3:30pm. Children who are not staying for an extra-curricular club or after school care are dismissed by staff at the end of the day to parents in the playground. Children who are staying for an extra-curricular club or after school care go straight to this activity from class.
