School Day

Skip Navigation LinksHomeLower SchoolSchool Day

The KPS Lower School day is structured to provide students with plenty of time to study, take part in co-curricular activities, and develop their health and wellbeing.

The day starts at 8.30am and consists of eight 35-minute lessons to ensure that students’ learning is focused and well- balanced. There is a 5 minute break between each lesson to allow students to refresh their minds and start their next lesson punctually. Students benefit from an extended lunch break, allowing them plenty of time to enjoy their lunch and take part in a wide range of clubs and activities, including sports, personal development, science, languages, art, music, professional skills, and niche societies based on a shared interest. Additionally, students have supervised access to Kensington Gardens for outdoor activities.

To ensure all our students eat a healthy lunch, restaurant-quality fresh food is prepared daily in the school’s own kitchen. Our catering team are able to cater for students’ dietary requirements. Read more about our delicious school lunches and check out this term's menus!

Lessons finish at 4.00pm and optional after school clubs run from 4.45pm to 6.00pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. During this 45 minute break between lessons and after school clubs, students can attend homework clubs or use the restaurant space for self- study.
