The School Day

Students are welcome in school from 8.00am onwards each day for lessons, library work and extra-curricular activities.

The school timetable is organised into 25 one-hour lessons each week. There are five lessons a day, over an alternating two-week schedule (A week and B week). The day also incorporates registration and assembly time, and movement time to allow flexibility to those staff that will travel between Salesian School and Chertsey High School. Students will have two assemblies each week in their year-groups: one led by their Head of Year, the other by a member of the school's leadership team.

One lesson over 2 weeks will be reserved for “Prep” time. During this time students will have the opportunity to work on project tasks based on their individual learning style. Where needed, additional interventions will take place during this time. In addition, the school will be staffed until 4:30pm every day (except Friday) which will allow students to complete homework in the school until that time.
