Senior House Waiters

4:10pm to 5:30pm

We are pleased to offer the after-school facility, "Senior House Waiters", for day children in Forms 1-6. The facility provides Tea at 4.10pm, immediately following the final bell, and supervised prep from 4:20pm until 5.30pm, usually in the Library at Senior House. You may find that you will need this facility on a regular basis or only occasionally. Children in Forms 1 and 2 are escorted up the road to Senior House by a member of staff to join the Form 3-6 children for tea.

There is a charge for Senior House Waiters (please consult the Fees Schedule* for the current rates). Tea (a drink and a snack) will be provided by default, at no extra cost, for all children staying on after school unless you have supplied your own drink and snack from home. Any charges for Waiters will be totalled at the end of the term and added to your account.  

You may collect your child at any time between 4:20-5:30pm, but please ensure you sign them out with the member of staff on duty.  Please use the School gates access code to let yourself in via the main entrance at 73 Grange Road. If your child has not been collected by 5:30pm they will be taken to wait at Reception.  Any children not collected from Reception by 6pm will be to the Senior House Dining Room to join the Boarding House staff and pupils who will be having supper.  If your child has not been collected by 6:30pm they will be taken to the Boarding House following the end of supper and supervised by the boarding staff.  In both instances there will be an hourly charge (as per the Fees Schedule) per child until they are collected from the Boarding House. 

If you know in advance the days you will require a place for your child/children in "Senior House Waiters", please complete the online Waiters reply form and return it before the first day of term (you will be prompted to sign up during the weeks leading up to the start of term, via a message in the website Portal).

If you do not know the days in advance and need to book in at short notice, please ring the Senior House (01223 353532) or Byron House (01223 353817) Secretaries as soon as you know you will need this facility. If your plans change and your child will not be staying for Waiters on a day they are booked in, please ensure you inform a member of staff at reception.
