Wraparound Care

Avon House Preparatory School appreciates that extended hours can be hugely beneficial to working parents and is able to offer supervision from 7.30am to 5.30pm.


Breakfast Club operates on a daily basis from 7.30am-8.00am and is available to all pupils termly at a cost of £175.00 (5 days a week). The cost is fixed and will not be pro-rata’ed if parents select to do fewer days. Breakfast, consisting of cereal, yoghurt, fruit and a drink, is served until 7.45am.

Current parents/pupils can register interest for Breakfast Club via the Parent Portal.


Tea Timers is run after school, on-site by our staff who provide a variety of activities until 5.30pm. Tea Timers is open to all our pupils subject to availability with those booking termly in advance given priority. We will do our best to accommodate occasional users but this may not always be possible due to the restrictions of staff to pupil ratios.

Pupils are taken to Tea Timers after lessons or a club where they are registered and split into age related groups. At 3.50pm, all children are given a snack consisting of fruit and a drink. Years 1-6 will be able to complete homework and all children will take part in a variety of activities (toys, games, drawing, films etc) until 5.00pm. For those children staying past 5.00pm, a high tea is served (see sample menu below).
