  • Afternoon clubs  
  • Library (Years 5 to 7)

Pupils with no afternoon lessons are encouraged to take advantage of this scheme by arranging their individual timetable accordingly.


Pupils can choose the weekdays they wish to register for the extended school day. After registering, these days are binding for pupils of the Primary School. Pupils attending Secondary School can be de-registered by their parents or guardians at short notice (until 12:00 pm) by means of a brief email to Ganztag@dslondon.org.uk. De-registering for Primary School pupils requires filling out a form (see Admissions/ Form Downloads).


The homework club is supervised by teachers, interns and educational staff. Primary School pupils are supervised in their respective classrooms, Year 5 upwards in room 11.


Free play is supervised by our dedicated team for the extended school day. Children are provided with a vest before lunch, Years 5 to 7 sign in at 2:10 pm in the library.

Secondary School pupils make their way to the cafeteria (bags remain in class rooms) after the 6th period and go outside afterwards. At 2:10 pm they register for free play or the homework club in the library. They leave the school on their own.
