Term Dates and Calendar

Our pupils have a daily routine which varies across the various year groups and can change from time to time to accommodate special circumstances, eg for an evening theatre trip, an afternoon sports fixture, in exam time, or in the lead up to a major drama production.

If he is a Boarder, we will wake your son early to ensure he has eaten breakfast before the day pupils arrive at around 8am. Lessons, Sports, Activities and Prep are given time in the day to ensure your son has the best possible mix every day, before he heads home, tired and happy, to rest in time for the next day.

The School operates each year on the following schedule:

Autumn Term Lent Term Summer Term
Late August/early September to mid-December with a 10-day mid-term break in October. Early January to mid/late March with a 1 week mid-term break in February. Mid/late April to late June/early July with a mid-term break at the end of May/early June.
