The school day

The school day

School gates open from 8:40, and children should be sat at desks ready to begin learning by 8:55.

There are two ways to access our grounds:

  • Via the path around the right side of the main building, along the path through the garden

  • Up the steps from the entrance on Glenfrome Road

For reception and Key Stage 1, you can drop children off at their classroom doors; for Key Stage 2 children, in the playground. This is a great time for a quick chat with your child's teacher. To minimise disruption, and keep children safe at all times, you won't be able to come through the classrooms into the corridors, so if you need to come to the school office we ask you to come back to the main entrance of the school.
