The School Day

Junior School

The day begins at 9.10am and finishes at 3.30pm, with an hour for lunch (12 noon to 1.00pm) and two short breaks (mid-morning and mid-afternoon).

Children have a College meal at £2.70 per day (payable weekly or by the term). Junior pupils may purchase fruit at morning break and are encouraged to eat healthy lunches - either packed lunches or from the dining room.

Holidays are in line with the Grammar School.


Senior School

College hours are from 9.00am to 12.40pm and from 1.25pm to 3.45pm five days a week.

Cafeteria style lunches are available in the College Dining Room - there is also a choice of set menu at £3.10 per day. Alternatively, pupils may bring with them a packed lunch.

Those living near the College may go home for lunch, but (with the exception of sixth formers) pupils are not allowed to go out for lunch other than to their own homes. Boarders (below sixth form level) must remain on campus.

Light refreshments may be purchased from the College Tuck Shop during morning break.
