Term Dates

We expect ALL girls to be in school until the stipulated times at the start of Leaves and holidays. At the ends of term girls may stay until the morning after the stipulated date if this makes travel arrangements easier. Please let us know if your daughter will be arriving on a very early flight so that we can make arrangements to welcome her.

All girls in UIII to UV may take one overnight exeat on a Saturday night per half term, excluding the Closed Weekends if the pattern of weekends allows. If taking an overnight exeat girls may leave once they have discharged all school responsibilities on a Saturday afternoon and should return on Sunday by 8.00pm for UIII and 8.45pm for older girls, or in time for Evensong if there is one.
