Our Day & Wraparound Care

Families have peace of mind that the children are well cared for, happy and engaged across the whole day

All children in the Junior School, from ages 2 to 11, can be cared for from 7.30am to 6pm.

We offer wraparound care where, in the morning, we offer a delicious breakfast hosted in the main School dining room with our boarders.

The children then begin their school day at 8am and finish at 4pm.

At 4pm, our youngest children in Lower Junior move into After School Club in a home-away-from-home environment. Here, after enjoying a snack, they complete their homework and then enjoy a relaxing time with arts and crafts, games and outdoor play.

Children can be picked up anytime between 4pm and 6pm (5pm on Friday).

Year 3 to Year 6 has the option to stay for Supervised Study for an hour in a classroom with a teacher focused on school work, or use the time to access our many educational platforms such as Atom Learning or Times Table Rock Stars.

Our Food

St Margaret’s offers a great range of food choices which reflects our diverse community and their meal preferences.

A good number in our community are vegetarian. On a daily basis there are 10 varieties of salad, a Chef Special of the Day; there is always soup and bread; 10 hot dishes offering a choice of vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian; one hot dessert, five different dessert pots and our legendary cakes. There is something for even the fussiest of eaters.

Pupils’ dietary requirements are always considered when preparing meals, and we are pleased to say that we are a nut-free school.

Our caterers work closely with our students to ensure we are keeping everyone involved and well fed. Special and important days are celebrated through the menu and help connect our pupils from different nationalities. The take-away nights and treat nights as well as BBQ events and Sixth form pizza nights are all important dates in the calendar.
