New children (day and weekly boarders) to the school who are entering years 4-8, arrive at the later time of 10.00am. Children and their parents should come to the main entrance of the school from where they will be guided to the loggia for coffee and a chance to meet other parents and staff. Children will then be taken by their ‘Substances’ to their classroom. Year 3 children go direct to their classrooms where they will be met by their form tutors. All children can bring their pencil cases and games kit with them on the first morning of term, or they may drop them off the day before if they know where to take them to.
