Times of the School Day

Students are expected to arrive by 8:20am to ensure they are in their lesson and ready to learn by 8:30am.  Students have a 20 minute breaktime each morning and we run a split lunch system which helps ensure students all access a timely lunchtime experience.  This means that a maximum of two year groups take lunch at a time. Lunchtime lasts 30 minutes and takes place between 11:50pm - 1:20pm, depending on the year group.  The times of the school day are as follow:







8:30 - 9:30

Lesson 1

To aid punctuality, a bell sounds five minutes before the start of each lesson.  The bell commences a countdown clock which shows on the digital signage on the corridors.  Students who arrive after the countdown clock has expired are marked late and sanctions are issued in line with our attendance policy.
