Extended School Day & Flexi Boarding

Extended Day

An extended day, from 8.00am until 5.00pm, is available free of charge to all SLCJS pupils, from Reception to Year 6. This makes life much easier for parents with children of different ages within the school.

However, the extended day doesn't stop there! Aware of the many practical challenges faced by parents with demanding professional schedules, SLCJS is pleased to be able to offer a variety of flexible opportunities for day children to dip into life in the boarding department. As well as providing the convenience factor, these enable pupils to experience the outstanding accommodation available in Kirby House and to enjoy more of the delicious meals served in the College Dining Hall!
