Wrap-Around Care

At Watson's we offer a number of out-of-hours care options for before and after school hours.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is based in the Junior School Dining Hall. Unlike the After School Club, there are no organised activities on offer, but children have the opportunity to relax before school by playing games, reading books and drawing.

Breakfast Club opens at 7.45am and the pupils attending are released from 8.30am onwards to the classrooms. Breakfast is provided for all pupils attending and consists of cereal, toast, fruit juice and milk.

The Club operates on normal school days during term time from the end of the school day until 6pm.

Preschool after school care is available in two sessions, one from 3pm until 4.15pm and a second from 4.15pm until 6pm, in the Willow classroom and our wonderful outdoor areas.

Lower Primary children are based in the Lower Primary Hall or the Junior School Dining Hall, where they have direct access to a large enclosed garden and excellent outdoor play areas. 

Primary 4 to Primary 7 are based in Upper Primary areas including the Performance Area and they also have direct access to outdoor play facilities.

The children take part in a wide variety of activities ranging from sport, craft and swimming to cookery, board games and quiet reading. Free play is also encouraged especially for our younger children and there is an opportunity for pupils in the Upper Primary Club to do their homework under supervision. A light snack of juice and biscuits is available daily for the children.

After School in the Senior School

Although there is no after school care facility for Senior School pupils, our extensive extra-curricular provision means that pupils can stay on at school to participate in a wide range of activities after the close of lessons.
