The School Day


A year planner of the term dates, school holiday dates and INSET days for the current academic year can be found on this website under Parents/Term Dates and INSET Days 2019/2020.

The school day begins on both School Campus and College Campus at 8.50am. Pupils who arrive late must report to Reception on arrival to ensure that they are registered for attendance and safeguarding purposes.

For health and safety reasons, pupils should not arrive before 8.45am. However, there is a Breakfast Club for the students on College Campus starting at 8.15am. This is open to all interested students who are offered a carousel of social learning opportunities (e.g. making and enjoying their breakfast of choice with their peers). All students are welcome - parents/carers just have to register an interest and places are subject to our ability to recruit the correct level of support staff. Breakfast Club provides a much-needed support for parents who work and also for students who independently travel/walk to college to have some time before college starts to relax with their friends.

In some departments lunch is taken at 12 noon and is followed by a break and social time between 12.45pm and 1.30pm. In other departments lunch is taken at 12:15pm and is followed by break and social time between 1pm and 1:40pm.

Lunch breaks are as follows in all key stages:

12.00 – 12.45 Lunch

12.45 – 1.30 Break

The school day ends at 3.15pm.

We hold various after school activities and clubs. Information regarding these will be sent to parents/carers as appropriate.
