School routine

The School Day

The school day for KS3, IGCSE (KS4) and Key Stage 5 (Y12/13) begins at 7:50 am. Students need to arrive in their Form Room to be marked present by their Form Tutor before 8:00 am otherwise they will be marked late. Students who are late must report to the School Office. Repeated lateness may result in after school detentions. Y12/13 students are fully occupied for the entire day in academic lessons, activities and study periods; therefore, students in these year groups must arrive at the same time as all other students and report to their tutor. Year 12 / 13 students have timetabled rooms available at every stage in the school day where they are expected to engage in private study when not engaged in academic lessons.

School hours: All classes start at 8:00am. There is a morning break of 15 minutes, and 5 minute transfer time between afternoon lessons.

The lengths of lessons vary between 55 and 60 minutes dependent upon the day. This is to facilitate activities prior to the start of lunch thereby ensuring that the School is all-inclusive in terms of full-time and part-time students. The activities scheduled for 2017 are:

  • whole school assembly / student-led assembly and separate staff meeting; these assemblies are on a rotational basis
  • tutor period / House period / Council meeting
  • Extra-Curricular activities
  • Games
  • PSHE
