Flywire's payment experience


Our day pupils benefit from spending their nights and weekends with their families whilst also having opportunities to extend their time at school to suit their family’s needs and make the most of our activities on offer.

Senior School Day

On Monday to Friday, pupils need to arrive about 8.30am, ready for registration at 8.40am. School finishes at 4.00pm, but with activities and supervised prep, pupils often stay until 5.00pm and beyond.

From Years 9-13, pupils also attend on Saturdays from 8.35am – 12.10pm, giving us space in the rest of the week to include other enrichment opportunities for pupils. Most families find that it isn’t all that different than the typical Saturday activities most families participate in anyhow, and parents enjoy making the most of cheaper travel fees with our longer holidays! 

Junior School Day

Drop off is from 8.20am for registration at 8.40am and collection is at 3.30pm (Years Reception to Year 2) or 4.00pm (Years 3 – 6). After-school care is available from 3.30pm – 5.00pm for all children in Years Reception to Year 2. Children in Years 3 – 6 are able to do prep in Jocelyn House from 4.15pm until 5.15pm; this is always supervised by a member of staff.

In addition, we have a Breakfast and Supper Club for families who need it. With healthy meal options, it even makes getting ready in the morning and the hustle and bustle of arriving home less stressful.

Breakfast Club starts from 7.45am for £2.00 per child, per day.

Supper Club goes until 6.00pm for £2.50 per child, per day.

Senior School and Sixth Form Provision

In our Senior School and Sixth Form all pupils are assigned to a boarding house so they can join the boarders before school, during break and lunchtime, and after school. They can enjoy snacks, activities with their friends and get help with prep in a supervised but family-like home.

Being in Wells city centre can make parking slightly more challenging than we would like, but we have designated drop off and pick up points around the site depending on your child’s year so you can do the school run safely.

Our bus service allows families an easy, safe alternative to get to school. We offer discounts on our bus service for families with more than one child: families with two children receive a 25% discount and families with three or more children receive a 50% discount.
