Structured learning is based on an 08.50 to 15.15 programme of activities for the Lower Preparatory Department, under the guidance and supervision of fully-qualified staff. The Senior and Upper Preparatory Departments both start at 08.50 with lessons based on an eight period day. The Upper Preparatory Department finishes at 15.30, whilst the Senior Department finishes at 15.35.

 

To cater for the needs of the modern family, the school provides fully-supervised, extended caring hours 07.45 to 18.00 hrs each day. Further information can be obtained about this from the main body of the prospectus.

 

Senior and Upper Preparatory Departments

The school enjoys the benefit of its own Science Laboratories and pupils from the age of seven years and upwards spend time, each week, in this specialist facility under the direction and guidance of fully-qualified Science teachers. The school also has its own Lending, Reference and Careers Libraries as well as Art and Design, Information Technology and Craft Design and Technology facilities, which allow students to work with a variety of materials including electronics and textiles. A new music room and Sports Hall have just opened. These facilities have been installed to provide opportunities for developing skills relevant to modern life and all pupils enjoy ‘hands on’ experience

 

The school has three tarmacadamed playgrounds and the buildings back onto the school playing fields. This area is used as a recreational area for the younger children and allows older pupils to participate in a number of sports, as well as providing a pleasant, open aspect to the rear of the school.

 

We are also able to enjoy the use of local recreational facilities, including squash courts and Hollingworth Lake for out-door water pursuits. Swimming is also taught to all children from Year 3 upwards by qualified staff.

 

Nutritious and well balanced meals are prepared by the school cook in a fully-equipped modern kitchen. The varied menu has been devised with the special needs of young children in mind. Alternatively pupils can bring their own lunch and snacks. In addition hot and cold drinks can be purchased.
