Our School Day and Term Dates

For girls in all parts of the School the day begins at 8.30am with registration.

In the Senior School and Sixth Form there is an assembly at 8.40am on two days a week and on the remaining days time is spent with Tutors following a PSHCEE (Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education) programme. Lessons start at 9.00am and there are nine lessons in a day with the day finishing at 4.00pm.

The day in the Junior School (Years 3 – 6) and Alice House (Nursery – Year 2) starts with either an assembly or a topic from their SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) programme. Girls in the Junior School finish lessons at 3.30pm but there are many clubs and activities after this time. Girls in Alice House who stay for a full day also finish at 3.30pm.

All girls have lunch in the self-service canteen or, in the case of Reception and below, in their Hall. The lunch hours can be busy with times set aside for practices, clubs and other activities for all ages.

At the end of the School day if girls are not involved in after School activities, they are able to take advantage of a supervised prep period until 5.30pm in the School Library. After School Care for our youngest girls is also provided until 6.00pm.
