How Is The School Day Structured?

 

You will have all lessons as per your timetable issued in July (or on arrival in September); we are maintaining our complete curriculum offer because your learning matters and because we can do so in as safe a manner as possible based on current guidance.

Changes to the covid protocols

We have made some changes to breaks, lunch and the end of the school day. We also have two new student supervisors to introduce you to.  Changes are in effect from Monday 12th October.

Break One

  • Break One dry days Years 8-11 will be in the new student area (side car park) or in the Restaurant.
  • Break One dry days Year 7 – tarmac to the front and side of the main building.
  • Break One wet days – Year 7 Main Hall
  • Break One wet days – Years 8-11 in the Restaurant.

Break Two

  • Dry days Y7-11 in the new student area (side car park)
  • Wet days – in classrooms (where they are in lessons), or for classrooms where students are not allowed (Science, Art etc.), the Main Hall

Lunch

Years 7-11 in the Restaurant only (sit down, pop your phone in your blazer, enjoy a chat and a meal with your friends)

End of school day 3.30pm for all

Having lived with the new timetable and liaised with the bus companies, there is no need for students to leave at 3.25pm. All lessons will end at 3.30pm from Monday.

 

We have made some amends to the school day to allow for split break and lunch provision.

Splitting break and lunchtimes mitigates the opportunities for students from different bubbles to mix. This means that sometimes during periods 2, 3 and 4 you may have split lessons (so, 30 minutes, a break, then another 30 minutes). We have prioritised lessons in GCSE and A Level years to be complete hours.
