The School Day

Breakfast Club

Children (from three years of age) can join our Breakfast Club from 07:30 each morning in Jubilee Hall which is run by our own team who know the children and their needs.


Starting the day

Morning drop-off is from 08:30 at the gate to the Walled Garden, for children in Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2). Children in Reception go to their classrooms from 08:30 where they are met by the teaching staff, who will welcome them into school. Children in Stepping Stones, our Nursery class, may be brought to their classrooms between 08:40-09:00, allowing a flexible start for our youngest children.



Daily assemblies are an excellent opportunity for the children to come together as a Pre-Prep family. Monday starts the week with a moral focus that encourages the children to think about others. Children nominate each other for our Act of Kindness award in recognition of their actions to serve others. Our Friday Assembly is a celebration, recognising achievements from both within and outside school. Throughout the year each class will prepare an assembly for the other children to watch (parents are invited), and all parents are invited to our special end of term assemblies.


Nutritious cooked lunches are part of our fees and are provided daily by Chartwells, caterers for the Berkhamsted Schools Group.  We provide a balanced rotating menu, with an extensive salad bar and where special dietary requirements are catered for.
