School Day

We have 5 x 1 hr lessons each day with the bulk of teaching taking place before lunch. We have two registration slots each day; one in the morning before lessons and the second immediately after lunch.

We follow a two-week timetable, which means that lesson patterns may change slightly every other week, e.g. Period 1, Week 1 on a Monday might be English, but in Week 2 it might be Science.

Students can check which week’s timetable is in operation. This information is displayed on the plasma TV screen at main reception.

  • The school day begins at 8.55am.
  • There is a morning break from 11.15am-11.35am; all students must stay in school.
  • Lunch time is from 1.35pm-2.15pm.
    • In the dining streets, students can choose either a full school meal or a snack-type lunch from food prepared in our own kitchen.
    • Packed lunches can be eaten in the dining streets also.
    • Fresh drinking water is available from water fountains on each floor of the building. Students are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle to school each day.
  • The school day ends at 3.25pm.
