From The Office
End of Day Collection/Parking
We realise parking is difficult in the immediate vicinity of our school, but we have recently received a number of complaints from local residents. We kindly request parents be understanding towards our neighbours and to be aware of the restrictions around the school and in particular not to:
  • park, wait or pick up boys on the zigzag lines outside the school entrance
  • park on any yellow lines near to the crossroads with Sheephouse Road / Ray Park Avenue, or on the corner of The Pagoda
  • wait or pick up in The Pagoda within the permit restricted times.
  • block residents' driveways or use driveways for turning
Thank you for your support with this matter.

These are in full flow, they finish Monday 11 December.  There are two Art days of Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 December.
Lent Term Activities
Lent term activities will be open for online registration via the Activities Hub ( from Monday 4 December. Listings are available online now, so have a look over the weekend and decide what you would like to do.
Registration will remain open until 5.00pm on Monday 11 December. Closing registration prior to the end of term will enable staff to ensure any organisational matters for the activity groups can be resolved before the holiday.
Activities will begin on Monday 8  January 2018.
Any pupil travelling home on the bus must be signed up for an activity, study session or pre-prep after school care. Pupils not staying after school must register as “Going Home”, ensuring that our “after-hours” fire lists are correct.

If you have any queries, please direct them to rather than calling the school offices as this will avoid any delay
