Stay and Play

The Stay and Play facility caters for children from Nursery to Year 2 after school. It is an opportunity to extend the day’s care for working parents and provides a fun atmosphere for the children to relax, unwind and play. We provide a variety of activities from swimming and trampoline, tennis and dance to film club, arts and crafts, as well as gardening and Forest Schools. The provision varies each term so please ask a member of staff for more information.

Spaces in Stay and Play are limited depending on child: staff ratios.  Spaces are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  Therefore if you know you will need sessions for the next term please ask the office for a booking form.  We will endeavour to accommodate all children, but if you are booking nearer the time please can you let us know by 9am in the morning.  This way we can try and arrange more staff if needed. 

Stay and Play is staffed internally from the Pre-Prep Department, and the children will be familiar with all the adults looking after them.  Depending on who is leading the session the activities will be run from a variety of classrooms in the Pre-Prep Department.  Please check with staff where to collect your child.  To minimise any possible upset or confusion, please ensure that your child is collected on time.  If there is any change to their usual routine, please inform the staff who will then be able to reassure your child. 

Session One: 3.30pm - 4.40pm

Session Two: 4.40pm - 5.20pm (including a cooked meal served in the dining room)

There is a discount for those children taking both sessions, please see the fees information on this website.

Holidays: Please note Stay and Play will not run on any Exeat Fridays (weekends where all main school children are on leave), or Fridays prior to holiday breaks

Cancellations: Please also note that we do charge for places once they have been booked, even if your child cannot attend due to illness or a school trip.  Please make sure you cancel any sessions you do not need by 9am in the morning.
