We would like to inform parents that the Upper School will be open to receive pupils at the hour of 8.40am and the Lower School at 8:50am. No responsibility is accepted for pupils arriving before that time. Classes will commence each day at 8:50a.m.

Classes end each day at 3.30p.m. children in the Lower School will be escorted to the appropriate entrance and directed to the person in charge of picking them up. In the Upper School, parents who wish to have their children escorted home should make their own arrangements to have them met at the school gate and the person to escort them should be at the school no later than 3.30p.m. as the school cannot accept responsibility for looking after the children after that time, unless written permission is given for a club.
