Times of 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 x 60 minute 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, assembly time and flexible movement time between periods. Students will have one assemblies each week in their year-groups by either head of year or SLT.

In terms of timings of a school day in 2020/2021, we can also confirm that we will start the day slightly earlier and finish slightly earlier in the afternoon. Please note that students will be more than welcome to join our popular breakfast club each morning where they are able to enjoy free porridge. For those parents that will find it difficult to commit to the earlier pick up, students will still be allowed to stay in school until 4pm. This will be the perfect opportunity for students to complete homework or take part in extra curricular activities.
