Additional Information:
Lunchtime Clubs will run from either 12.50 pm - 1.20 pm or 1.20 pm -1.50 pm
(please check confirmation forms).

After-School Clubs will run as follows (unless otherwise stated on


confirmations):

Session 1: 3.30 pm - 4.15 pm


Session 2: 4.15 pm - 5.00 pm
Session 3: 5.00 pm - 5.45 pm

All After-School Clubs (Sessions 2 & 3) will go to tea, prior to their


activities (with the exception of after-school training). Parents will
be charged for Tea, on the end of term bill.

If your son is in a Session 3 activity he will spend between 4.15 pm and 5.00
pm in prep class. (In these cases he will automatically be placed on the
register)

The group allocation for both Cricket and Tennis will be ability based,
grouping together boys of similar levels. This will, hopefully, allow the
coaches to provide more specific coaching to benefit each boy’s development.

For activities such as Basketball & Judo where we run a number of sessions,
priority for the earlier sessions will be given to the younger age groups. As a
result boys in Years 5-8 may often find themselves being allocated Session 3.

If, for any reason, a session has to be cancelled parents will be


notified, at the earliest convenience, by the School’s texting service.

If your son is unable to attend an after-school activity the member of staff


concerned must be contacted, prior to the day. If it is a session run by an
external member of staff please e-mail activities@lanesborough.surrey.sch.uk.

The Pick Up point for each activity will be the Club’s venue, NOT the Chinese
Gates.
