Our Day & Wraparound Care
Flexible options to make life easier
Family life is busy, so we offer wraparound care that can fit around your day.
Our regular school day is from 8am to 4pm, but if you need it, our wraparound care can extend the day from 7.30am to 6pm.
The After School Club is located in the Junior School. The children in Upper Junior are all able to stay for Supervised Study from 4pm to 5pm, before moving to After School Club at 5pm to 6pm where children can then read, play and relax, after a busy day and co-curricular programme.
Early morning care starts at 7.30am where children, alongside our boarders, have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious breakfast served in the main dining hall of the Waterhouse building.
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.
