Our school day is organised to provide education at times when our children learn best and also to maximise opportunities for extra-curricular activities. Our morning session starts at 8.25 and ends at 12.50. The afternoon session runs from 13.25 to 14.45.
The times above include a mid-morning break and a 30 minute lunch period and provide a teaching time of 5 x 60 minute periods per day. In addition, each tutor group has a 20 minute tutorial session each day which may include an assembly.
Healthy lunches are provided in 2 canteens on site or students may also choose to bring packed lunches. Students from Year 7 to 9 are expected to stay on site for their lunch, whilst students in Years 10 to 13 are able to leave the site at lunchtime if they prefer.
Students in Years 10 & 11 who have parental permission to leave site and who have not received any Negative Comments in the previous week, must use a security swipe on exit and entry off / onto the school site to ensure at all times the school is aware of their attendance for Safeguarding and Health & Safety reasons.
Similarly students in Years 12 & 13 must use a security swipe on exit and entry off / onto the school site to ensure at all times the school is aware of their attendance for Safeguarding and Health & Safety reasons.
