Breakfast Club

School is open from 7:30am every day if you wish your daughter to attend Breakfast Club. Our early years staff provide a warm welcome and a healthy choice of food is available. At 8:00am members of the Breakfast Club will move to the playground to join those girls who are arriving and will be supervised by a member of staff. 

  • The club is bookable in advance only via our Prep School office. (An e-form is sent out in advance each week)
  • A charge of £2.50 per day is payable for this service.

After Care

We appreciate that parents cannot always pick up their children at the end of the school day. Supervised After Care is available every day until 6:00pm 

  • Arrangements and dismissal times
    • Girls in Reception and Year 1, who are not picked up at the usual time at the end of the day will, under staff supervision, be escorted to the Prep School library. There is a good supply of activities and games which are appropriate for all age groups.
    • If a pupil is not picked up from school at the end of the school day, she will automatically go to After Care. Please ring the school during the day, in order to alert staff and ask them to inform your daughter, if circumstances arise which delay your arrival at the school.
    • For siblings of Senior School pupils we offer a prompt 4:00pm dismissal time from the black gate on Cranley Road.
    • Girls may use After Care if they attend after school clubs or activities which do not begin until after the end of their normal school day e.g. a sports club session starting at 4:30pm. If these clubs take place in the Senior School and start immediately after the school day, the girls will be escorted to their activity by a member of staff.

Homework and Tormead Terrapins Clubs

All girls staying at school who are not participating in a club will be supervised by staff until 4:30pm. From 3:40pm to 4:00pm there will be time for a snack and break followed by Homework Club.

  • The club is bookable in advance via our Prep School office. To secure a place in this club, a booking form will be sent out prior to the start of each term. You will then have half a term’s notice to cancel your daughter’s place.
  • The fee for this club is £8 and will include a snack and drink provided by the school kitchen.
