In the morning, the school yard will be supervised from 8.30a.m. onward. No child should be alone on the school grounds before 8.30a.m. unless they are attending Mass. Our pupils are very welcome to join the Sisters in the Convent for Mass each morning from 8.00a.m. onwards.
The Sisters have always welcomed children of all faith backgrounds to the Chapel in the morning, and girls of every age have a chance to be still and calm before the busy school day begins. As parents you are also very welcome. If you are dropping your child between 8.00am and 8.30am, and they will be brought over to school by a member of staff when Mass is over (around 8.30a.m.)
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES:
School ends for our junior pupils at 1.30p.m. and for our senior pupils at 2.30p.m. each day. Pupils must be collected from school by a parent / guardian or nominated person at that time each day.
There are many options for pupils and parents interested in after-school activities. A full list of the after school activities is updated and available early each school year. The provisional list for September 2019 is available here, though there may be some changes made once school re-opens:
If you’re interested in any of these activities, please contact the teachers / coaches of the individual activities directly with any questions you have about availability or the suitability of the class for your child.
