Extended Day

Early Club – 7.30am to 8.30am
If parents require an early start to their day, our Early Club provides fully flexible care just when you need it.

To ensure that our little ones feel at home, children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 (Prep I and II) start their morning in the cosy surroundings of our Prep Library before moving to the Early Years Foundation Stage building ready to begin their learning. There is no need to pre-book and parents can leave safe in the knowledge that their youngest are in the care of experienced staff who will escort them to class together with any messages, ready to start the day.

A small fee applies dependent on time of arrival: £6 for children attending from 7.30am, £2.50 payable for arrivals after 8am, £1.50 is charged for children arriving at 8.20am.

Early Arrivers – 7.30am to 8.30am
If arriving early, Prep pupils in years III and above also have supervised use of the Prep Library, which provides a safe and secure space to meet before registration begins.

A fee of £6 is payable for arrivals from 7.30am. There is no charge for children arriving after 8am.


  • Supervised care for children in EYFS and Prep
  • Available from as early as 7.30am
  • Fully flexible, no need to pre-book
  • Nominal fees required.
