School Opening Times

Primary school pupils will arrive at 8:45am by taxi and will be greeted by staff at the front of the school.  They will then be walked to their classrooms, where they can have some toast and prepare for learning.  At the end of the day (2:15pm) the pupils will be walked up to the entrance of the school to meet their taxis.


When your child arrives at the high school, they should enter by the dining hall entrance where they will be met by staff from 8:15am (dependent upon taxi arrival).  There are various classrooms open and staffed where your child can get a hot drink and toast or cereal.  Lessons start at 9:00am.  Your child will be supervised during any unstructured times (break/dinner) and will be escorted to the dining hall at the end of the day (2:35pm) by staff.
