Extended Day Programme

Our rich and varied programme of extended-day activities runs from Monday to Thursday inclusive and enables your child to explore different interests and discover new talents. The programme is updated each term, with new activities added. All pupils are encouraged to take part and the variety on offer ensures that there is something for everyone. Supervised prep forms part of the programme, which enables pupils to complete their homework in a structured, but relaxed environment.

Due to COVID restrictions pupils should firstly pack their bags for the end of the school day and if needed, use their allocated toilet. They should then go straight to their designated activity where a small snack and drink will be provided. Pupils will not be allowed to return to their lockers before they go home. They will then be escorted, as a group, by the accompanying teacher to the front of school ready to be collected.

How to Book

The form will be open for bookings between Tuesday morning at 9.00am through to 3pm on Thursday, for activities taking place the following week.
