The doors open at 8.30am for the First School and girls can be dropped off between 8.30am and 8.45am. The Lower School girls can be dropped off between 8.15 - 8.30am and registration is at 8.40am.
Reception children can use the 'main' coach routes in the morning and the 'early' routes in the afternoon as soon as they are settled in school and a ‘coach pal’ has been identified. This usually takes a couple of weeks.
The coach team works closely with the Junior School staff to identify a ‘coach pal’ (i.e. a girl from Y5 or above) who will look after the First School girl on the coach in the morning. The coach pal will ensure your daughter is seated and belted up. She will escort her to the First School and hand her over to the staff. Many lovely relationships (and babysitters!) arise from the coach pal system.
Adult Chaperones are assigned to the 'early' coaches in the afternoon.
The school is within walking distance of Edgware, Canons Park or Stanmore stations.
There is a minibus shuttle service from the Edgware and Stanmore stations in the mornings and from school to Edgware and Canons Park tube stations from 4.30pm in the afternoons.
Parents/carers can then accompany the girls to school on the tube and then they can be chaperoned on the minibus and escorted into the First School in the mornings.
The First School day ends at 3.10pm. Girls with sisters in the Lower School may wait in their classrooms until 3.20pm. Girls using the afternoon coach service home, are collected by the escort at 3.20pm. The Lower School day ends at 3.25pm and After School Clubs end at 4.00pm.
Year Two girls are able to have small group recorder or violin lessons after school. They may also wait in the late room until 4.00pm if they have a sister in a Lower School club.
Girls in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 cannot travel home at this time, but from Year 3 girls can use the 'main' coach services to get home if they have been to an After School Club, or if their destination is not covered by an 'early' coach, or if they are waiting for an older sibling and have attended After School Care which operates from 4.00pm- 5.30pm. Year 3 girls will not be escorted on this service.
