The Read School is keen to promote the independent boarding school ethos across all areas of the school and with this in mind, we run an activity programme and creche facility at the end of the normal school day, running in line with the timings for the rest of the school.
Creche is available from 3.30 – 5.00 pm and is offered on a very flexible daily basis in the Pre-Prep and Pre-School. Alongside creche, there will be a variety of after-school activities available for all children. Extended day care may be available on request.
Over the course of their time in the Pre-Prep and Pre-School, the children will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of excursions and visits, providing invaluable learning experiences supporting the curriculum. With the exception of the summer picnic, Pre-Prep and Pre-School have their own separate educational visits, which are age-appropriate and linked to their topic work.
Letters providing all the relevant details of the visit will be sent out to parents beforehand and parents are required to give permission via a return slip.
Smart uniform appropriate to the time of year should be worn on most visits (you will be advised which ones do not require this) and this helps give the children a sense of identity and responsibility, fostering pride in being part of Read School.
