There is a late room where children can wait, supervised, in the event of a hold-up.
On Games afternoons, boys can be picked up from the playing fields by prior arrangement – written notice is required, and boys should be picked up well before the coach is due to leave (around 3.45 p.m.).
Pre-Prep held their Sports Day last Tuesday afternoon on Hampstead Heath.
We had been watching the weather anxiously for days. Would we be facing 32˚ of heat? Would we be dodging severe thunderstorms? Would the ground be soggy or dry? All options were considered and plans made. As it happened the day was warm and cloudy, the ground dry enough to sit on, and the forecast promised it would stay that way.
