Clubs generally operate from 1530-1630 (Reception - Year 2), 1630-1730 (Years 3 - 5) and 1730-1830 (Years 6 - 8) with a few exceptions.  Children in Pre-Prep and Middle School typically stay with their class teacher until the start of their club.

Permission from the child’s parent or carer must be given if they are to be collected by someone different.

 

After School Provision

There are three options for after school care:

  • The After School Care (TASC) will operate for pupils in Pre-School to Year 4 from the first day of term, running from 1530 to 1800 (term time only). This offers children a programme of play-based activities and serves a snack. TASC is run by 360 sports education and sessions can be booked, in advance, through their website

The 360 Club cost is £8 per hour and bookings can be made online:

  • 1530 - 1630 - £8
  • 1530 - 1700 - £12
  • 1530 - 1730 - £16
  • 1530 - 1800 - £20
  • 1630 - 1730 - £8
  • 1630 - 1800 - £12

 

  • Twilight is available to children in Years 3 to 8 from the end of their school day until 1745. This is primarily for supervised prep, rather than play activities, and is also there for those parents who need some occasional after-school care. The charge for Twilight, will be £4 per half-hour. Where there will be a regular booking, or when advance notice can be given, children should be booked in for sessions through the School Office. Twilight is for children wanting to work on prep and for quiet reading - it is not intended as a long-term childcare solution and those in Year 4 or below who want supervised play or 'winding-down' time should be booked into our clubs programme or TASC.
  • After School Clubs - Information for the termly clubs will be sent out via email during the previous term. The cost for any clubs you choose will be added to your school bill. The charge is currently £80 per club per term. Clubs operate according to demand – it may be that if there is not enough take-up for a certain one then it may have to be cancelled for the term. Numbers for some clubs do have to be limited due to the nature of the activity and we may not be able to grant your choice if there is too much demand. Certain externally-led clubs are booked directly rather than through the school and details are available each term. If you are running late to collect your child please notify the school office and arrangements will be made for your child to go to TASC/Twilight.

 

Breakfast, Supper and Boarding

Breakfast is served at 0730 and must be booked through the Boarding House or School Office.  The charge for breakfast is currently £6 and will be added to your school bill.

Supper is available to children in Years 3 to 8 on Monday to Thursday, inclusive, and is served from 1830 to 1900.  Places must be booked through the School Office or the Boarding House.  Children will need to be booked in for TASC or Twilight beforehand.  The charge for supper is currently £15 and will be added to your school bill.

Children in Years 3 to 8 can be booked in to board on Mondays to Thursdays, inclusive, during term-time. There are a limited number of places available for flexi-boarders and, where possible, we prefer children to have a minimum of two consecutive boarding nights a week booked on a regular basis.  Boarding at Hall Grove gives a good introduction to senior school life and is very popular.  For bookings and enquiries please contact the School Office.
