Changes for September 2021

The requirement to have staggered start and end times was removed by the government in July. This means that AM registration and break time will return to the school day and that we have extended form time from ten to twenty minutes as we understand the importance of this time in supporting students’ pastoral wellbeing in the mornings.


Year 7 students stay on site to carry out Edextra activities each Wednesday. The activity list and booking form will be shared with families in September.

Period 4 & Lunch time

Period 4 is divided into three half hour sections. Year groups are taught for two of them and have their lunch during the other.

Lateness to school

Student must arrive before 8:30
