Arriving at School
Many of our pupils are fortunate to be able to walk or cycle through Richmond Park en route to School each day. The School has a central, covered bicycle park where bicycles may be left securely. Children arrive at School between 8.00am and 8.25am. Prep School pupils go to their classrooms on arrival and are welcomed by their teachers for Registration, followed by morning lessons. An emphasis is placed on being prepared for the day ahead, and on greeting each other in a courteous, friendly manner.
The Prep School Day
Morning Registration takes place at 8.20am with lessons following until 10.10am. There is a 20 minute morning break for play, with lessons then continuing until 12.30am. Lunch is served in the Conservatory, followed by play. Afternoon Registration commences at 1.30pm, followed by lessons until 3.45pm when children may be collected from the Playground. Many pupils choose to participate in a range of after school clubs and activities and there is a Homework Club arranged in the General Purposes room. This is on a fee for service basis and organised to help working parents.
