School Hours

The School takes responsibility for pupils from 8:30 am to 3.30 pm for the Kindergarten and from 8:00am to 3:30pm for Lower School and Upper School classes. Lower School children should only be at School before half past eight if they come with Upper School siblings or for unavoidable reasons. Please ring the School to make an alternative arrangement if you are unable to collect your child on time.

Please do not drop your children at School or Kindergarten before the stated times or let them stay longer at School on their own. In the morning all staff are at brief morning meetings from 8.00 – 8.25 am. Teachers are also often at meetings after 3.20 pm and are not available for supervision. Please ask other parents to help if the need arises.
