A Day in Prep

"I play cricket because I like sport! And playing with my friends, it’s fun! In numeracy,  I mostly like doing my times tables, I know my 7, 8 & 9 times tables really well."

Seby, Prep 2

A Day in the Life of Trinity Prep

School is open from 8am (unless you have chosen to join Breakfast Club)

08:25 Registration - with Class teachers

08:35 Assembly - this takes place in Oakley Hall. There is a rolling programme with Mr Burdett, Mr Coen (Headmaster) and visitors inspiring us at the start of the day. During every term, each class leads a morning assembly.

Wake & Shake (an exercise to music) - to get our brains ready for the best possible day’s learning.

09:00 Morning Lessons start

In addition to the morning’s Literacy and Numeracy, a more practical lesson is taught during the morning e.g. Art, Music, ICT skills, PE

10:45 Play time - healthy snacks can be brought into school; on Wednesdays, fruit is provided and there is always the option for milk or fruit juice.

11:10 Another Lesson

12:00 Lunch starts for the younger children

Lunch Break – Time for play, library, music practice, some clubs or School Council during this time

13:15 Registration – a chance for quiet reading before the afternoon lessons

A full range of specialist subjects are enjoyed during the afternoon, fixtures are held and Forest School explored.

15:10 Class time – Pupils are back with their class teacher to round off the day, practising spellings or their tables, listening to a story or checking homework.

15:20 (EYFS & KS1) or 15:40 (KS2) End of official school day and start of clubs

16:50 Pick up from clubs (unless children need to stay on for Supper Club)


We are aware that many of our parents are working extremely hard, and for long hours, to allow their children to enjoy all the opportunities on offer at Trinity Prep.

Early-morning care: Pupils can arrive at the School for supervised play from 8am onwards. For those who wish to arrive earlier, we run a Breakfast Club where the catering team provide breakfast for children, starting at 07:45 every weekday morning, in the Refectory.

After-School care: For those who are not doing an extra-curricular activity, supervised Prep is offered for Years 3 to 6 in order to allow them to do their homework, or as extra study time to complete any work that may have been missed. As well as one of the more ‘formal’ clubs for the younger children, there is always a very relaxed activity where children can enjoy a calmer atmosphere before heading home.

Supper Club: For those parents who cannot pick up before 6pm, we offer Supper Club at an additional cost. Your child is provided with a packed tea and supervised within the Prep Department. This provision needs booking so that the catering team can prepare the necessary meals and supervision can be organised.
