Please be reminded that parents are asked to book non-urgent medical and dental appointments for their children outside of school hours or during the half-term and end-of-term holidays to prevent disruption to the school day.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that dates remain unchanged, we reserve the right to make adjustments if circumstances require. 

On the last day of the Autumn Term and Summer Term all pupils finish school before lunch - the Pre-Prep Department finishes at 11.30am, the Prep School at 12 noon and the Senior School at 12.30 p.m.

Please note, however, that the last day of each Spring Term is a full school day, i.e. Pre-Prep children ending at 3.15/3.25pm.  Prep and Senior pupils at 4.00/4.10pm and 4.55pm for Sixth Form students who have Lesson 8.

The last day before every October, February and May/June half term break is also a full school day.

Pupils are required to remain in school throughout term time and permission for absence for extended holidays to accommodate cheaper air fares, co-ordinate holidays with siblings at other schools etcetera cannot be granted, nor is it permissible to collect your child early from his/her classroom.  Parents must also ensure that sufficient time is factored into arrangements to allow time to travel to the airport to check in on time.
