The Prep School Day

The formal Prep School Day runs from 8:20am to 4:20pm (Years 3 and 4) and from 8:20am to 5:20pm (Years 5 to 8), Monday through to Friday.

We also offer excellent Wraparound Care from 7:30am until 7:30pm, which features a traditional cooked breakfast and supper. Particularly unique to Lockers Park is an approach which means that this is all included within the termly fees and at no extra cost.

Here’s a snapshot of a typical day for our Year 3 day pupils, which includes frequent breaks to boost concentration in class and a variety of lessons and beyond-the-classroom activities, giving your son a jam-packed, action-filled day.

Our Year 3 boys are welcome to join us at 7:30am for breakfast, and can stay for after school activities at 4:20pm, Reading Period at 4:50pm and Supper at 5:30pm.

As the boys get older, they progress to a slightly longer school day, with a timetable and classes that are designed to encourage independent thinking and focus. Here’s an example of a typical day for our Year 7 day pupils:
