Academy Day


"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same amount of hours per day that were given to… Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein. You can do it."

– H. JACKSON BROWN JR.

Aylward Academy Timetable

The Academy is open to students from 08:00. The school day starts at 08:45 and ends at 15:30.

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure that their child arrives punctually for the formal start to the Academy day before 08:40 each day. Students arriving after this time will be considered late, and will be issued with detentions the same day.

Please be aware that the parent or carer is responsible for arranging their child's safe transport from the Academy to home. After 15:30 the Academy is no longer responsible for the safety of your child remaining on-site, unless they are participating in an after school organised activity for which you have given them prior permission to attend or attending a Centralised Detention where notice will be given in advance.
