Structure of the Day

We run a long day for children in the Prep school which enables day pupils to have a full day of classroom curriculum, to take part in activities at breaks or after school, to do homework in school if they choose and to have supper. This long day gives children the opportunity to experience a boarding-style day without the need to board if they are not ready to take that step.

Saturday lessons begin in the 8s. Matches against other schools are usually on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
