Timings of the School Day

Students can be in school from 8.00am to 4.30pm for lessons, library work and community activities. As a school we have a large number of extra-curricular clubs and fixtures each evening. Times for these events are communicated by the member of staff responsible for the fixture or club.

The school week is organised into 30, fifty minute lessons; six 50 minute lessons a day. Each morning the students have a registration or assembly which follow a clear programme that supports our curriculum aims. To ensure students can arrive on time we have movement time after break and lunch which ensures students are not late to lessons.

Breakfast is available every day in the school canteen from 8.00 until 8.30 am.

Students have two assemblies over the fortnight: one with their year group, and one combined with another year group (double assembly).
