School timings

We are pleased to share the structure of the school week as per below. The school day starts from 07:30 for all staff. The first lesson, which is House Registration, starts at 08:10 for all pupils each day. Prior to this, co-curricular activities will be offered from 6:55 for one hour. Pupils not attending a morning CCA may come onsite from 07:30 with staff supervision. On Thursday the school finishes slightly earlier at 14:40 for Prep and Senior pupils. For Early Years pupils their day finishes at 14:30 throughout the week with a sibling club offered for those that will be picked up at the later time of 15:40. The school timings are structured around 20-minute time slots as per the diagram. The length of lessons varies depending on the subject taught however, the majority of lessons are 40 minutes in duration.
