Supporting Families Beyond the School Day Flexible out-of-school arrangements help to ease the day-to-day pressures of workplace demands and modern living. Day pupils can join us for breakfast and after school care, on either a regular or drop-in basis. Parents can be reassured that, after school, younger children are entertained by supervised indoor and outdoor activities and older pupils either enjoy activities or complete homework tasks before relaxing with their friends. Older day pupils can also join our boarding houses after school until 8pm (9pm for sixth formers) as part of our Extended Day Boarding service. They join boarders for evening meals, study and boarding activities before going home. Pupils delight in downtime with their friends, and parents can be satisfied that they have also spent time studying and eaten well. Flexible and occasional boarding can help during busy times e.g., in the run-up to exams, a school performance or if you are away from home. Pupils spend a relaxed and secure night in familiar surroundings, giving parents peace of mind. This is also a great way of introducing children to the benefits of boarding. “Families can avoid a lengthy commute or make after school activities easier to manage by taking advantage of our five night (weekly) boarding or flexible boarding.” 29
