At the beginning of the year, the teachers are given a full timetable for their own class and a copy is given to the pupils and parents.

Core subjects such as Maths and English are scheduled daily, and other subjects happen throughout the week. Each subject is allocated time based on the year group’s needs.

All year groups go to QMSC for Swimming, and various venues for Games/Sport once a week.

The pupils are given further opportunities to run around and get some fresh air by visiting the park/playground during the week.

School Assemblies are held weekly for each year group in the Pre-Prep, Junior Prep and Senior Prep.  There is also a Whole School Assembly which takes place on Tuesday mornings in St. Michael’s Church, Chester Square.  All of the children, with the exception of Nursery, attend this assembly, and parents are also welcome to attend. The children and staff leave the School at 8.50 a.m. and return to the School by 10.00 a.m.
