The morning will consist of three lessons and usually an assembly. Lunch will be at 12.10pm each day following the Infants, and your child will be able to choose from a selection of hot meals and salads. The lunch break finishes at 1.10pm when pupils will either go to afternoon lessons or will travel up to Failand for their Games afternoon. The day ends at 3.40pm but the playground is supervised until 4.00pm so that children who have siblings in the Senior School can be collected at the same time.
If you would like to collect your child later than 4.00pm they can attend Homework Time until 4.30pm (Monday–Thursday only), or you can book them into after-school care.
After-school care runs daily in term-time until 5.45pm. This is run in a Junior School classroom by our Teaching Assistants so your child will be in a familiar environment, with familiar faces around them. Places must be booked at least 24 hours in advance, and the cost for sessions (currently £7.00 Monday –Thursday and £8.00 on a Friday, including a sandwich tea) will be added to your termly bill.
Teachers also run a range of after-school Clubs which your child might choose to take part in. These typically run for 45 minutes at the end of the School day and offer your child the chance to try a new hobby or pursue an interest, and to spend some time with friends.
We help each child to achieve their best, whatever their individual strengths or abilities.
Come and discover the excitement for yourself.
Growing up in the 21st century presents challenges to young people and at BGS we do all we can to help your child learn to navigate their way through them.
