We appreciate how busy family life can be and recognise that parents are looking for flexibility of care alongside the very best standard of education. With this in mind, we offer full wrap around care: before school, after school and holiday clubs.
To give working families the flexibility they need, children are welcomed to school from 7.45am for morning club. A friendly smile, fun activities and games to share with friends make a great way to start the day.
After school, Pre-Prep children can attend After School Care Club, which runs from 3.30pm until 5.30pm every day. They enjoy sandwiches, snacks and plenty of time to relax and play with their friends.
For Years 3-8, Prep is available as an option for those needing to stay on at school until 5.30pm but not wishing to sign up for an organised club. This gives children the chance to get homework out of the way in a quiet, supervised environment.
For Kindergarten children we offer extended sessions until 4.30pm and 5.30pm.
Morning Club, After School Care and Prep are all fully flexible so you do not need to sign up in advance. Simply drop off at Morning Club as and when you need to, and let us know on the day if you need to use the after school facilities.
When the school day finishes, the opportunities for fun and learning do not end. Children from Year 1 upwards can discover an exciting range of activities to engage with.

We also offer an exciting range of specialist workshops which have included ceramics, dance, youth orchestra and cookery as well as the chance to join our staff for adventures on days out.
