Prep School Day

Bellan House 2021

School Day

Children in Oswestry School Prep, from Reception to Year 6, start the day at 8.40 am and finish at 3.45 pm.  

Each day begins with registration, followed by assembly.

The general theme of assemblies is moralistic, encouraging the children to learn how to live and work together, how to treat each other and how to distinguish between right and wrong.

Before morning break the children enjoy a healthy mid-morning snack of fruit before a 20-minute playtime. A wide range of hot food, salads and fruit is available at lunchtime; our children have healthy meals, prepared by specialist caterers. Children with special diets are catered for, e.g. individually prepared meals for acute allergy sufferers. The cost of lunch and snacks is included in the school fees.

All pupils swim in the school pool each week and children enjoy games on the Maes-y-Llan, Oswestry School’s large playing fields, once a week. They also experience an additional PE session in the Momentum Sports Hall on a weekly basis. Furthermore, all children enjoy the challenges of outdoor learning in the extensive forest school which is led by our expert forest school teacher. 

After-school clubs are available to all pupils and start after lessons at the end of the day. The sports clubs take place on the Senior School site. There is a huge variety of clubs available including an excellent range of performing arts activities.

There is also a waiting room, at Bellan House, where children waiting for siblings or school transport may complete their homework or participate in play activities until 4:30 pm. From here, to support working parents, children may access the free wraparound facilities and partake of a light tea (nominal charge) until 6.00 pm.
