Senior School


Senior Girls can arrive in school from 7:30am, to take part in one of the many extra-curricular clubs that are on offer.

They are supervised in the Lower Dining Room where they can join friends and prepare for the day or meet up with teachers should they need to.

Registration is in Form Rooms at 8:25am so we ask all girls to be in school by 8:20am latest.


School ends at 3:45pm when girls disappear in all directions to train, or play fixtures or rehearse or to head to one of our many music practice rooms.

For those who prefer to make a start on their homework, our fully equipped Learning Resources Centre is open until 6:00pm, and girls are under supervision. We ask that parents register their daughters for supervision so that we know exactly who is expected to be there and the girls are asked to sign in and out.

A member of the Senior Leadership Team is also on-duty every evening until 6pm.
