At Ashfold we recognise that parents lead busy lives and need flexibility both at the beginning and end of the school day.
Our Breakfast Club and After-school Club offer wrap-around care from 7.30am to 6.00pm for children in Pre-Prep 1 upwards (subject to exclusions). Please note that WAC is only available until 5pm for PP1 and PP2.
Our Breakfast Club for children in Pre-Prep 1 – Form 6 (Nursery – Year 8) runs from 7.30am, Monday – Friday. It includes a healthy breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit, yoghurt and drinks including juice and milk.
After breakfast, children in Forms 1 – 6 go to their Form Rooms at 8.00am to get ready for the school day. Children in the Pre-Prep Department are accompanied to the Pre-Prep playground at 8.15am.
Breakfast Club can be booked in advance or subject to availability, on an ad hoc basis.
Breakfast Club is charged at £6.30 per session.
Our After-school Club runs from the end of the school day until 6.00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. It includes snacks and drinks, and a nourishing sandwich tea, at 5.20pm, for those children staying until 6.00pm. On Fridays it runs until 5.20pm.
On Wednesdays, After-school Club runs until 5.00pm for Pre-Prep children only and in a further change we are introducing After-school Club for children in Forms 1 - 6, which is supervised by the boarding staff.
After-school Club is not an extension of school or our extra-curricular programme but an opportunity for children to relax and play with their friends. Activities may take place indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.
After-school Club can be booked in advance or subject to availability, on an ad hoc basis.
The new After-school Care session times and charges are as below:
|Session 1: 3.15 - 4.15pm only PP (including a drink and snack)||£7.00|
