Extended Day

The longer school day is a particular feature of the school, with pupils having access to sessions before and after formal lesson times. A key part of our vision is to broaden horizons through offering a full range of extra-curricular activities. All pupils have access to two free activities a week and we have many other chargeable external clubs on offer.

At the junior school site (Old Police Station) we offer an 'Earlybirds' breakfast club and after school provision, 'Nightingales'. This allows parents to drop their children from 7.45 am and collect any time up to 6.00 pm. The sessions are available for a competitive price compared with other forms of childcare and are operated by fully trained staff .

A homework club is offered for pupils from age 7 upwards, taking place at both the senior and junior sites.


Earlybirds runs in the morning from 7.45 am and is open for all pupils in the junior school (Old Police Station). Pupils can have a continental breakfast with a range of cereals and toast, and use the time to take part in a range of supervised games and activities.


Nightingales operates at the end of formal lessons between 3.30 pm and 6.00 pm. Pupils are fully supervised by our trained staff team and can participate in a whole range of indoor and outdoor and activities.

Homework Study Club

Supervised Homework Study Club is available for senior school pupils and is run by staff who can help support the pupils’ learning. The session runs until 4.30 pm daily.
