Homework is an important part of our children’s learning as it complements, extends and enhances the school curriculum. Homework is set by the class teacher and is appropriate to the current topic of each subject. As a guidance we would expect Pre-Prep pupils to spend 5-10 minutes per day on their homework, recognising phonic sounds, practising pencil control and colouring exercises, and progressing to reading.

After School

After-School Club is available from 3:00pm until  6:00pm every day. Children take part in a range of engaging activities, and of course free play. The cost of after school activities is included within the school fees.
