Once a week there is a whole department Assembly, lead by the Headmaster or Head of Pre-Prep, where a theme is introduced through the telling of a story and the children’s news and achievements are shared. As part of their preparation for the transition into the Prep department, Pre-Prep 3 children attend Assembly with the older children once a week from the beginning of the Spring term.
Our school year of 170 teaching days is divided into three terms. The Autumn term runs from the beginning of September to Christmas; the Spring Term from January to Easter and the Summer Term run from Easter until the end of June. There is a two week mid-term break in the Autumn Term and a one week break in the Spring Term. Term dates are published well in advance and may be consulted here.
Performances of Harvest, Nativity, Spring and Summer concerts are regular features of the annual calendar and are very popular with parents and family members.
