Wrap-around Care

Before and after-school care is available at Russell House to everyone who needs it, from 7.45am to 6pm, five days a week.

Morning Waiting Group

This is open daily from 7.45am – 8.40am in the Music Room. Choristers for Forms 4-7 starts at 8.10am. Registration followed by lessons is at 8.40am for most parts of the school.

After-school Waiting Group

An after-school waiting group takes place from 3.30pm – 4.15pm and is available for all children attending afternoon sessions.  The leaving times for our classes are staggered to ease pressure on the car park, and the after-school waiting group enables children to be collected at the time school finishes for the oldest child in the family. Children may bring a healthy snack to eat during this time. Waiting group for children in the Main School is on the front court, or the Old Hall if the weather is inclement. Pre-Prep children attend waiting group in the Nursery.
