It may be necessary to set up a waiting list should prior bookings exceed capacity. Places will then be allocated in strict accordance with the waiting list.

On a daily basis, if demand for places exceeds capacity, places will firstly be offered to pupils booked in advance. Late bookings will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Your child(ren) will be booked in for the days requested on the booking form. However, whilst no guarantee can be given, it may be possible to occasionally swap days or to book an additional session, depending on capacity and providing enough notice is given (24 hours).

If you have reserved a place for your child(ren) and do not need to take up your place, please inform the care team 24 hours before the session. Failure to do so may result in a charge being made.
A register will be kept and parents/carers will be expected to sign their child(ren) in (at Breakfast Club) and out at the end of Aftercare.
Should you wish to cancel your arrangement with us at any stage, please inform after care as soon as possible.


Cost will be set at £7 per session per child for After-School Care and £4 per session per child for Breakfast Club , regardless of the duration of any given session – this is non-negotiable.
Fees are payable at the end of each half term. Invoices will be sent out from the Bursar’s Office.
It may be possible, with prior agreement, to arrange additional sessions. If this is possible, they will be charged for at the standard rate.
6 weeks notice will be given by school, prior to any price increase in the cost of care.


Children MUST NOT be dropped off before 7.30am.
Late collection, after 6pm will carry a penalty charge of £10 for every 15 minutes, or part thereof, late. This is to cover additional staffing costs incurred. Notice of late collection will be recorded on the register.


All existing school policies and procedures continue to apply during after school care.

Please note, we will not, at this stage, be providing out of school care during the holidays. However, the Easter and Summer School will still operate as normal at the Boys’ Junior School for all interested boys and girls.
A summer school is run at the Senior Girls’ School for girls in Years 5, 6 and 7.
