Late Stay

Children from the Pre-Prep or Junior School waiting for older siblings finishing later in the school are looked after until the end of the Junior School and Senior School days.

Children staying beyond this time because they cannot be collected go into our Late Stay facility for which there is no additional charge made.  For all children in Late Stay this service includes a light tea.

 In the Pre-Prep, school ends at 3.15pm and Late Stay activities begin at 4.00pm.

In the Junior School, Late Stay begins at 4.30pm and once in Late Stay children may only then be collected from 5.10pm.  At least one hobby is available each day or children may opt to attend a supervised prep session.

In the Senior School, Late Stay also begins at 4.30pm.  A variety of hobbies and activities is available, included supervised prep sessions.  Once in Late Stay children may only be collected between 5.10pm and 5.20pm and again at 5.50pm.

The School closes at 6.00pm.


Holiday Clubs & Courses

We run two holiday courses a year: at the end of the Easter and Summer holidays. These courses are open only to children attending Crosfields and are run by our own staff.

Timings vary slightly from course to course but generally the mornings are spent developing sports skills for cricket and football whilst a wide variety of different activities is available for children who stay on in the afternoons.

Full information and booking forms for these courses is usually sent out several weeks before the end of the spring and summer terms.


Hobbies & Activities

Children are encouraged to participate in our busy hobbies and activities programme which runs during lunch breaks and after school. 

The variety of hobbies, varies slightly from term to term as seasonal variations affect the sporting options, but there are always plenty of sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic options available.
