Smaller classes and first-rate facilities ensure that children get the best possible start to their school life; creativity of thought and action is encouraged. Our children are challenged, busy and happy but have plenty of free time to enjoy the beautiful gardens.
Doors open at 08:00, when children and adults may come into Breakfast Club and enjoy a sociable start to the school day. At 08:30 children go to their classes before registration at 08:40. First Break is at 10:40, lasts for 20 minutes and gives the children the chance to climb trees, build dens and have a healthy snack.
Lunch starts at 11:50 for the Lower School and 12:40 for the Upper School. Children enjoy a delicious cooked option with vegetables, salad and home-baked bread as well as a tasty pudding or yoghurt plus fresh fruit every day.
After eating lunch, the children have a Lunch Break outside - 15 minutes for the Lower School and 25 minutes for the Upper School. Lessons restart at 12:40 for the Lower School and 13:30 for the Upper School with the formal school day ending at 15:40.
