Free before school and after school care for Pre-School
In this busy world, we recognise that working parents need childcare that fits the work/life balance but still provides the best possible start for their child. We want to support you in this, so for children in the Pre-School we offer a free Breakfast club and free afterschool care in The Den for each full day they attend school. That means we can care for your child from 7.30am until 6pm. Your child will receive a nutritional breakfast and a snack tea is served at 4.30pm as part of our afterschool club. This is in addition to the cooked lunch that they will receive when they attend a full day in Pre-School.
- Early Birds breakfast club (7.45am – 8.25am): £3.30 per day to include breakfast
- The Den after school club (3.30pm – 6.00pm): £9.75 per day to include a snack tea with a late collection charge of £5 per 15 minutes of part thereof
- Registration fee per child: £100
- Deposit per family: £500 (refunded by the School after the final account has been cleared)
- PTA subscription per child: £15 per year
- Sibling discounts: £100 per term from Reception onwards
- Instrumental Tuition: Individual music lessons are available at the school.
All parents are welcome to apply for a bursary at any point in their child’s time at Highfield or on first application*. The bursary is means tested and assessed by an independent bursary assessor. Bursaries are available for up to 50% discount on fees.
*As Government funding is available for Preschool, this is only available from Reception to Year 6.
